Upon arrival, our representative will pick you up from the Bandaraniyake International airport. This person will be your private driver cum guide for the entire duration of your Sri Lanka round tour. For the first night of your tour, you will be driven to Colombo – the commercial capital of the island. You will check in to Galle Face Hotel for your first night in Sri Lanka.
In the morning of Day Two, you will be driven to the city of Anuradhapura. This is the city of ancient ruins where you can obtain an in-depth explanation of the history of Sri Lanka. One of the stops in between would be The Ancient City of Yapahuwa: a 300 foot fortified wonder that dates back to the 13th century.
During the morning of Day three, you will get the chance to visit the Mihintale Buddhist Temple where you will find more ruins amongst the first Buddhist Temple in Sri Lanka. Afterwards you can enjoy the rest of the day in the ambiance of your accommodation. Forest Rock Garden is where your accommodation will be arranged for days two and three.
On day four, you will move from Anuradhapura to Sigiriya where we have some adventure lined up for you amidst the dated historical ruins. Sigiriya, also known as the “Lions Rock” is a palace built by an ancient King on top of a rock. To see the palace you have to climb the rock, which is quite a do-able activity by most of us.
During your climb you will see some beautiful frescos embedded in the rock and a Lion’s Gate, as the entrance to the palace. At the top you will see ruins of the palace as well as an amazingly breathtaking view of the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka. After this adventurous activity, you will be driven to Heritance Kandalama for a relaxing night stay in a luxurious atmosphere.
The next day you will head towards the hill capital of the Island – Kandy. On the way you will visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage where you can mingle with the elephants and be a part of their lifestyle. Later in the day you can visit the beautiful Botanical Gardens in Kandy to see some of the most exquisite flora that Sri Lanka boasts of. The Golden Crown is where you will be sleeping over on day five and six.
On day six you will be taken to visit the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. Also known as Sri Dalada Maligawa, this golden roofed Temple houses the relic of Lord Buddha’s tooth. Afterwards, you can enjoy the Kandy Town for what it is by having an amazing sightseeing experience. Towards the evening you can enjoy an entertaining Kandyan Cultural Dance Show.
On day seven, we will explore the panoramic beauty of the beautiful town of Nuwara Eliya, also known as “Little England”. En route, you will come across attractive waterfalls amongst the hills. Your driver will stop at one upon your request if you wish to take a dip. You will then check in to Heritance Tea Factory Hotel. A visit to the hotel’s neighboring tea factory and a fun-filled tea plucking experience is also lined up for you on this day.
After touring the town of Nuwara Eliya and indulging in some delicious strawberry meals, you will head to the Nanu Oya railway station. From here you will take an absolutely stunning train journey to the charming town of Ella. Upon reaching Ella in the evening, you will check in to 98 Acres Resort & Spa for the next two nights.
The next morning, we advise you to sacrifice some sleep and wake up at the crack of dawn to be able to explore the breathtaking view of sunrise from the “Ella Gap”. This is the astonishing view in between two cliffs that creeps up with the sunrise every morning. The rest of the day is left for your relaxation.
On day ten of your Sri Lankan Round Tour, you will depart from the city of Ella. After checking in to Cinnamon Wild Yala, you will engage in an evening full of fun-filled wildlife safari activities.
The next morning, you will be a part of the morning game drive at the camping site and then move on to the final lap of your tour: exploring the gorgeous combination of sun, sand and water in Sri Lanka.
For exploring the beaches of Sri Lanka, you could revitalize yourself with the help of the Southern Coastline of Sri Lanka.
During your two days stay at the luxurious Fortress Resort in Galle, you will be taken to visit the Galle Dutch Fort, where you will study the well preserved fort from the time of the Portuguese rule. In neighbouring towns, you can visit the turtle hatchery in Kosgoda, coral reefs in Hikkaduwa and also indulge in some exciting water sports along the Southern Coastline.
Towards the latter half of day thirteen, you will depart to the city of Colombo. Upon reaching Colombo, Galle Face Hotel is where you will sleep over for the night.
The next morning is left free for you to shop and explore Colombo. Depending on the time of your flight, you will be driven to the airport two-three hours in advance.

How they experienced it

Blue Lanka is a class act
From start to finish a flawless tour. These guys are number 1 for a reason. From the very first contact they gave us excellent customer service and went the extra mile to make sure we had the trip of a lifetime through Sri Lanka.
Special thanks to Deminda our agent and especially to Mr Mayura our driver for 14 days throughout the southern province and golden triangle, who (while maintaining a sense of professionalism) felt more like a friend than a hired driver. Mayura had excellent food, activity and itinerary recommendations that added to our plan and was a constant source of information on the history and customs of this incredible country. He was punctual and safety was his priority – we quickly felt at ease driving across Sri Lanka with our baby. We will be returning and will be asking for Mayura!
We shopped around for a bit but are so glad we settled on Blue Lanka, despite other operators who maybe offered lower fares. To name a few things that make Blue Lanka the top choice: high quality vehicle, no hidden charges (upon inquiry other operators had pages of provisos and extra fees, little itinerary flexibility and poor treatment of their drivers), safety as a priority (hadn’t been in the country 24 hours before we saw the type of accidents more aggressive drivers are capable of on the small congested Sri Lankan roads, and customer service – you can book these guys with confidence that you’ll have the great trip you’re hoping for. Thanks Blue Lanka! Sri Lanka is a phenomenal place – not a place we didn’t love in two weeks. Really can’t go wrong anywhere you go. Enjoy!
Enjoy a traditional tea plucking experience at one of the many tea estates upcountry.
