An extraordinary shared tour of Sri Lanka, taking in many of the country’s cultural and natural highlights, followed by a Maldives island escape with a dolphin-spotting excursion

Positioned just off the southern coast of India, the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka is a paradise of emerald green rainforest and sugary sands. This kaleidoscopic destination boasts some of the wildest, most exotic scenery in the Indian Ocean, with elephants, dolphins and leopards all residents of the island. Pack in the country’s best bits with this escape, before blissing out with five irresistible nights at a stellar Maldives retreat.

You’ll uncover the ruins of the one-time capital of Sri Lanka, Polonnaruwa, and stand in awe of staggering Sigiriya rock fortress. Explore a typical village with a guide for an insight into local life and have your senses stirred at the sublime Matale spice garden. Travel to the cultural treasure trove of Kandy, taking in the glorious Royal Botanical Gardens and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, as well as a traditional evening show.

A scenic overnight stay in Nuwara Eliya is next up on your agenda. Dubbed the “Little England of Sri Lanka”, you’ll be staying amidst the luscious tea country, surrounded by rolling emerald-green hills. Trek in the glorious Horton plains before the sun’s too high in the sky and make your way to Ella - a similarly serene and green destination on the way to the extraordinary Udawalawe National Park. On the edge of this renowned reserve, you’ll sleep under canvas at a safari camp, and set off at dusk for an evening Jeep drive to observe the many wild elephants that roam the grasslands.

After spending the final night of your tour in Colombo, you’ll be met with white sand and crystal-clear water in one of the most beautiful regions on earth. A castaway island in the Maldives' southernmost atoll, Canareef Resort Maldives is a true escape from reality. Simply getting there is a departure from the ordinary, as you travel across the equator over a breathtaking ocean expanse. It's the ultimate place to relax, and there's no chance of getting bored - you'll head out on a dolphin-spotting trip, and you might also want to try snorkelling, diving with manta rays and exploring sunken shipwrecks.
