Sri Lanka Active Tour in Detail

Private Tour 4 Days / 3 Nights

Day 1: Anuradhapura – Sigiriya

Welcome at Colombo Airport, drive to Anuradhapura, the first royal city of Sri Lanka. Visit the huge stupas (Buddhist structures) and significant ruins of the ancient city with numerous temples and monastic complexes dating back to pre-Christian times, including the Sri Maha Bodhi, supposedly an offshoot of the fig tree where Buddha found enlightenment. The royal city of Anuradhapura was the centre of Sinhalese and Buddhist culture for over 14 centuries. Dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Sigiriya – Polonnaruwa

Visit the famous fortress of Sigiriya from the 5th century AD. The geometrically designed water garden with its fountains is the oldest artificially created garden in Asia. Alternatively, for the adventurous: instead of Sigiriya, the more challenging Pidurangala Rock (discount €26 (approx. UK £22 / USD $27)). Subsequent village visit with home visit, then transfer to Polonnaruwa. Visit the rock temple Gal Vihara from the 12th century and the impressive reservoir Parakrama Samudra. Optional: bike tour through the ruins, possibly to greet one of the monkeys living there (surcharge €6 (approx. UK £5 / USD $7)). Dinner and overnight stay in Sigiriya.

Day 3: Dambulla - Kandy

Continue to Dambulla, the city with the largest rose quartz deposits in Sri Lanka. Visit the magnificent cave temples from the 1st century BC with fascinating wall paintings and impressive Buddha sculptures (UNESCO World Heritage Site). On request, a short stop at the spice garden. Then city tour in Kandy, the capital of Sri Lanka for 225 years from 1590, including a visit to the famous Temple of the Tooth and an impressive traditional dance performance. Dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4: Kandy - Randeniya

Continuation of the city tour in Kandy and visit to the Botanical Gardens of Peradeniya. Then visit to the Millennium Elephant Foundation in Randeniya. There, museum tour, elephant walk, feeding, and bath (approx. 45’) as well as a visit to the elephant dung paper factory. Drive to the airport (transfer to the hotel for an additional fee).
