An unforgettable, diverse tour of Sri Lanka's ancient sites and natural wonders, plus some time on the beach – includes all travel and exciting excursions
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. Spend 12 nights hopping between its best bits, taking in stunning scenery and a generous handful of UNESCO World Heritage sites, before a blissful beach stay on the coast.
You'll spend your first three nights in Colombo, where you'll take a tour of this bustling capital, as well as heading out on a walking bar-hopping tour and sitting down to a 'The Ministry of Crab' set menu dinner. Then, you'll journey to your second destination in Habarana, from where you'll climb to the top of Sigiriya Rock Fortress and have the option to visit Polonnaruwa (at an additional cost) – Sri Lanka's first capital city. You'll also head into Minneriya National Park, where residents include sambar deer, leopards and elephants.
It's on to Kandy next, visiting the Dambulla Cave Temples en route. In Kandy, you'll visit the Temple of the Tooth, which houses a tooth relic that belonged to Buddha himself. Then, it's on to Udawalawe, from where you'll visit the Sinharaja Rainforest – one of the least disturbed and biologically unique lowland rain forests in Sri Lanka – as well as Udawalawe National Park. You'll spend your last few nights on Sri Lanka's beautiful coast, from where you'll take a scenic boat ride on the Madu River.

To compare our rates with others online, start with the holiday supplier’s own website
If you choose to buy it, the money will go towards your purchase, if not, the cash will be credited to your Secret Escapes account.
Important: Please note, this is not a deposit, complete or guaranteed booking; holding the date simply prevents other members from swooping in and booking your preferred date while you're still having a think about it. Secret Escapes will not be liable for expenses incurred should that date not be available to book and a hold is cancelled.
In short, you pay Secret Escapes a non-refundable deposit to secure your holiday, then you pay the holiday supplier the remaining balance of the holiday - as advertised - at a later date (before you travel).
We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
