Days 1-2: Dambulla

Day 3: Kandy

It’s onwards to Kandy today; en-route you’ll visit the UNESCO-listed and awe-inspiring Dambulla Cave Temple, as well as a historical Ayurvedic village, known for its spices. Discover the Sacred Temple of the Tooth, considered to be the holiest place in the world for many Buddhists, and take a fascinating tour of the city, ending at a local arts and crafts hotspot.

Day 4: Hatton

Next, board a train to Hatton, the heart of Sri Lanka’s hill country. After a spectacularly scenic journey on a route dating back to the 19th century, visit a tea plantation and factory in Nuwara Eliya, following the humble tea leaf’s journey to the cup. You’ll also make stops at two breathtaking waterfalls, Devon Falls and St. Clairs Falls.

Day 5: Udawalawe

In association with the Born Free Foundation, the Department of Wildlife Conservation has set up the Elephant Transit Home, a facility designed to rehabilitate orphaned baby elephants with an aim to ultimately release them back into their natural habitat.

Day 7: Beruwala

On the last day of your guided tour, you’ll transfer to Beruwala for some well-earnt beach relaxation, but not before one last cultural excursion.

The area is a mix of pretty harbours, lagoons and perfect golden beaches and yet inside, everything is state of-the-art. The Turkish-style architecture of the resort takes its inspiration from 10th-century Arab settlers in Sri Lanka, and its name is a reference to this history.
