Overview

Sitting in the Indian Ocean and blessed with miles of rustling rain forest and acres of sandy shoreline, Sri Lanka ticks all the boxes when it comes to sun-soaked escapes. Formerly known as Ceylon, its varied landscapes are bursting with ancient Buddhist ruins, citadels, palaces and frescoes. 

So what’s in store for you on this 9-night getaway to Sri Lanka’s sun-dappled shores? You’ll go from combing the undergrowth of national parks to unwinding on pearlescent shores and gazing up at decorative temples and magical monuments. 

Your adventure starts in the small city of Habarana, a safari hot spot due to its proximity to Minneriya National Park. The city is wonderfully green and verdant, brimming with mischievous critters, elephant parks and an extensive lake. 

After exploring Habarana, we’ll whisk you off to the World Heritage Site of Polonnaruwa, the second most ancient of Sri Lanka’s kingdoms and a town where historic remnants lurk around every corner. Prepare to feast your eyes on man-made reservoirs, marvelous monuments and stunning statues before combing through the undergrowth of Minneriya National Park.  

Next, Sri Lanka’s ancient capital, Anuradhapura, awaits. With its immaculately-preserved ruins and wonderful architecture, the city is an absolute treat to behold. This is also where you’ll find the oldest historically documented tree on Earth, as well as Wilpattu National Park and its sand-rimmed water basins.   

And the last leg of your trip will be spent relaxing on the pearly-white shoreline of Trincomalee, a port city on Sri Lanka’s northeast coast.  Visits to the splendid Gokanna Temple is an absolute must for even the most seasoned travellers.
