South Sri Lankan Slowdown

We've created this itinerary for those that want to experience Sri Lanka without all the travel that comes with a longer trip. Start in the beautiful colonial town of Galle, with a few nights wandering the ramparts and soaking up the vibes at sunset, before diving into Yala National Park for your wildlife fix, and finishing up on one of the many wonderful beaches this little island has to offer. With a south coast trip, you can be as busy or as chilled as you like. All-out adventurer? There's surfing, whale watching, cooking, hiking, name it, Sri Lanka's got it. And for the beachgoers, there are endless spots to kick back with a book or nap by the pool. This trip has all bases covered.
