Best for: Culture & Beach, First Time Visitor
A journey through Sri Lanka makes for a wonderful holiday. Explore ancient cities, lost temples, travel through the stunning mountain scenery and tea estates and end by kicking back on the palm-fringed beaches of the south coast. This suggested itinerary doesn’t aim to do it all (although we can add in any destination in Sri Lanka you want), but showcases the absolute highlights which is perfect if this is your first-time trip to Sri Lanka. You’ll have a private driver/guide as you travel, being able to stop off at points of interest you might come across in your guidebook or make a detour to some more off-the-beaten track highlights. That might mean stopping in a rural village to see Sri Lanka away from the tourist trail. Your private guide will be there to showcase the main sights, and we love to see these in innovative ways. If you want, you can cycle around the ancient city of Polonnaruwa for instance. All in all, this itinerary is relaxing and immersive, showcasing the amazing highlights of this wonderful country.
