  • Day : 1 Arrive in Colombo

    Meet and greet at the airport by our travel representative and transfer to hotel for check in.

    Rest of the day leisure at the hotel.

    Proceed with Colombo city tour in the evening

    The throbbing metropolis, Colombo - located in the West - is not only the country's commercial capital, but also the turbine that impels above 50% of the national GDP flanking Colombo's fancy urban development effort.

    Drive along the clean streets edging the crystal white Race Course - horse racing hub in 1893 & World War II airstrip - furnished today with lavish clothing, food & tea boutiques. Meanwhile, ride to Pettah & tune into the Floating Market - an offbeat shopping experience - or feel the buzz surrounding the upcoming inspiration, the Colombo Port City - an offshore city - featuring parks, commercial complexes & even an F1 track!

    Head along Bauddhaloka Mawatha towards 'Arcade' facing a historic waypost, the Independence Square. Every designer boutique, top-notch cuisine outlet and even the 'walk-over fish tank', have revamped this colonial masterpiece into one of the trendiest shopping and hangout zones in Sri Lanka.

    Have a chilled beer at the Dutch Hospital while gazing through fancy windows showcasing best fashion, jewelry & handicraft brands.

    Smell the scent of incense while listening to the chiming bells of Gangarama temple. Or, jazz up to Colombo's night life spiced by night clubs & casinos that borderline its bustle.

    If you're lucky, head into an exhibition at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) before swaying your head to an opera or play at Nelum Pokuna that should just drive your day into perfection!

    Overnight in Colombo.
  • Day : 2 Colombo - Pinnawala - Peradeniya - Kandy

    After breakfast, travel from Colombo to Pinnawala.

    As you enter the 25 acre coconut property, do not be surprised to witness baby elephants being bottle fed or moving around freely causing absolutely no harm to anyone. It is rightly a sincere sight to observe how these gentle giants - orphaned and sometimes three-legged - are taken care of since 1975 at Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage.

    Up to date, over 20 calves have been born here, and it is surprising to hear that some of its inmates have even seen their grand children during the past few decades! Watch as they take a river bath twice a day at 10:00 am & 2:00 pm respectively for an experience that could never be felt anywhere else on earth!

    Travel from Pinnawala to Peradeniya.

    First developed as a pleasure garden under royalty and later harmonized by the British, the Royal Botanical Gardens of Peradeniya - today bundled with the most welcoming facilities located just 4 miles off Kandy - is a flourishing national asset in the Wonder of Asia. Walk into this 147 acre bliss of an experience, passing well tended lawns, pavilions & an octagon conservatory to be greeted by the vast expanse of a magnificently landscaped lush green turf which will encourage you for an exhilarating break. Towards the north of the entrance rests a cafeteria that one might come across before stepping into some of the highlights - the orchid house & giant Javan fig tree - of this ace which overflow in grace.

    Transfer from Peradeniya to Kandy.

    Overnight in Kandy.
  • Day : 3 Kandy - Tea Plantation - Nuwara Eliya

    After breakfast, travel from Kandy to Tea Plantation.

    Sri Lanka, Tea and Tourism are words which cannot be separated.

    Take a tour to the cold & misty hills that take pride of an ultimate tea tour, covering lush green blankets of tea plantations. Or just step into a tea factory processing the prestigious brand of Ceylon Tea, to observe a rich tradition kept alive up to date. As you observe the hissing and swishing of machines, inhaling the heavenly scent arising from these facilities, make sure to end your day in style over a perfectly blended cup of pure Ceylon Tea.

    Travel from Tea Plantation to Nuwara Eliya.

    Misty steep roads, twisting through lush green blankets of tea bushes in a cool climate, remind visitors that they are within the range of the renowned British colonial retreat, Nuwara Eliya.

    Augmented by an English countryside atmosphere, the city of light - once governed by English & Scottish planters - is still studded with colonial bungalows, hedgerows & one of the finest 18-hole golf courses in the world.

    A hike through the green grass and redbrick walls should present breathtaking views of a buzzing countryside hamlet. Drive through green valleys of the hill country pierced by endless waterfalls & dotted by tea pluckers draped in bright-colored saris. Or rent a bike for a gentle ride along the banks splashed by the waters of Lake Gregory.

    Overnight in Nuwara Eliya.
  • Day : 4 Nuwara Eliya - Kitulgala - Bentota / Ahungala

    After breakfast, travel from Nuwara Eliya to Kitulgala.

    Showered by two monsoons each year, Kitulgala - the destination of 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' - marks an important landmark in many calendars as one of the wettest places in Sri Lanka.

    If adventure close to Colombo is your pick, then Kitulgala is your bliss!

    Grab your gear and toss into the wild rapids for a seamless rafting challenge on white water, thundering downstream throwing rafters far & wide. Hop from rock to rock upstream for a mind - blowing waterfall jump that should strain your voice to the core or slide down to the darkest depths of caves haunted by millions of bats.

    If hardcore adventurism is not for you, then simply trek along the beaten track to admire the immaculate beauty of the wilderness.

    Travel from Kitulgala to Bentota.

    Bentota, undoubtedly has some of the best stretches of clean sandy beaches in the country boasting of numerous romantic settings carved by both the river & sea. This unique experience leads to nothing, but an enchanted gateway to bliss.

    Float into the ocean for some deep-sea fishing or get wet with some serious rumble on the water with jet
    skiing, surfing, diving or body boarding. Finally, cherish the golden sun sink into the horizon as you sit back gently under a shady palm tree.

    Overnight in Bentota / Ahungala.
  • Day : 5 Bentota / Ahungala - Balapitiya - Kosgoda - Bentota / Ahungala

    After breakfast, travel from Bentota to Balapitiya.

    Balapitiya is where one could just sit back and observe how ecology and culture combines under the sun! Cut through the clear water of Madu River - a lifeline of Balapitiya - and head towards Kotu Duwa, the small island housing a temple that dates back to ancient Sinhalese kings. Or, sail through tunnels of shady mangroves swaying alongside Madu River - hiding an ecological treasure - to witness the tranquility of this bio-diversity hot spot which boasts of reptiles, mollusks and over 70 species of fresh water fish.

    Today the region - which is strong in observing rural folk life in the island - does not only boast of cinnamon plantations in abundance, but also has a fine 'fish pedicure center' - one of the most potent & latest rejuvenation techniques.

    Apart from these amenities Balapitiya has also become a household name in the minds of bird watchers ensuring a thrilling offshore experience.

    Travel from Balapitiya to Kosgoda.

    Both locals and international volunteers battling it out for ''Sea Turtles' Sake'' is a common sight at Kosgoda.

    This vibrant tourist destination sitting calm along the Southern coast of Sri Lanka - apart from its traditional industries of fisheries and cinnamon cultivation - was later recognized by the Wildlife Protection Society who studded the region with a Sea Turtle Conservation Project which operates on a formidable scale today. Indirectly, this has become a ring hole of flipper & shell enthusiasts!

    Travel from Kosgoda to Bentota.

    Overnight in Bentota / Ahungalla.
  • Day : 6 Departure from Bentota

    After breakfast, you will be transferred to Bentota River Airport for return flight back home.
