Day 1: Colombo – Horathapola
Having arrived at the airport in Colombo, you’ll meet with your guide before being transferred to your accommodation at Horathapola. Having stopped en-route to sample Sri Lanka’s sweet pineapple, the remainder of the day is yours to enjoy the lovingly restored plantation bungalow where you will spend the first night of your trip.

Day 2: Horathapola – Sigiriya
Your exploration of the island gets underway with the journey through woodlands and paddy fields towards the Cultural Triangle, the area in the centre of Sri Lanka where many of its ancient sites can be found. En-route, there is the option to pay a visit to the Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawela where you’ll be able to watch the animals bathe in the local river or being feed by the keepers who now care for them.

Day 3: Sigiriya
You’ll start the day with a trip to Hiriwadunna for a village tour, which will see you given the chance to see Sri Lankan life first hand while travelling by tuk tuk, by bullock cart and on water on a traditional catamaran. Following time back at your resort, you’ll then head out to one of Sri Lanka’s main attractions in the afternoon as you climb to the summit of the 200m high rock fortress at Sigiriya. Dating back thousands of years, the former citadel is now a World Heritage site and the climb to the top, which will see you pass a range of ancient wall paintings, will allow you to marvel at the view of the surrounding area – including the moat and gardens below.
  • Vil Uyana (B)
Day 4: Sigiriya – Kandy

  • Elephant Stable Hotel (B)
Day 5: Kandy – Dickoya
Before you leave for the highlands, you’ll pay a visit to the stunning botanical gardens at Peradeniya, which were originally created for the pleasure of a Sinhala king. Having been expanded over time, the gardens are now home to more than 4,000 species of plant that have combined to create an oasis of tranquillity where anyone is free to take a relaxing and peaceful stroll.
