With so much diversity Sri Lanka has enough to keep even the most jaded traveller engrossed for several weeks. However, for those with less time this trip visits the essential highlights. The island is packed with Buddhist cities, fragrant spice gardens, ancient fortresses and a multitude of temples all set amongst the verdant flora that only a tropical climate can produce. With a cycle ride and visits to historic cities and temples included, this is a busy itinerary but with enough time to unwind and enjoy some tropical sun.
  • Cycle trip through a series of lakes and a rice paddy plantation
  • Explore the beautiful lakeside town of Kandy
  • Climb the rock fortress at Sigirya for breathtaking views
  • The magnificent cave temple at Dambulla and the ruins at Polonnaruwa
  • Visit the lush green of Nuwara Eliya

During this cultural exploration of Sri Lanka, we stay in a mixture of three- and four-star hotels (locally rated). These typically offer local hospitality in small to mid-size properties and are near the attractions or towns we're visiting. The normal accommodations used on this trip can be found on the day-to-day itinerary; however, below are a couple of the notable places we stay.



Sigiriya: Hotel Sigiriya (nights 2-4)







This comfortable four-star property surrounded by nature is the perfect base for exploring the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka. With views of Sigiriya Rock from the freshwater pool and spacious rooms looking out to the gardens, you can relax and unwind in this idyllic haven.



Kandy: Hotel Topaz (nights 5-6)







The charming Hotel Topaz is perched on the highest point of Sri Lanka's hill capital and provides comfort and tranquility amid the bustling city. The bedrooms offer panoramic hillside views and facilities include a swimming pool, spa and restaurants. In just a 30-minute walk or 10-minute taxi ride, you reach the heart of Kandy, where you can explore the market and shops or wander around the lake.



Worth knowing



Please note, paying the single supplement may not mean you receive a double or twin room for sole use. The room you are allocated may differ from hotel to hotel and, on some nights, a smaller one-person room may be allocated.
