Embark on a sensory journey through Sri Lanka, from Kandy's cultural hub to the sun-kissed shores of Kumu Beach, with iconic sights, hands-on cooking classes, rustic chalets, and adrenaline-fueled surfing adventures in between.


Why we love it

“Embark on a thrilling sensory odyssey through Sri Lanka's undulating hills to the sun-drenched shores, starting in the vibrant cultural epicentre of Kandy. Immerse yourself in the mesmerizing Temple of the Tooth, inhale the intoxicating scents of the botanical gardens, and master the nuances of Sri Lankan cuisine in a hands-on cooking class. Then, board the legendary train ride through the lush Tea Country to Ella, where charming chalets nestled amidst the verdant landscape beckon. Discover ancient temples, hidden trails, and breathtaking views around every turn. Surrender to the tranquil beauty of Malabar Hill, where the jungle envelops you, and serenity reigns. Then brace yourself for adventure at Kumu Beach, where you can savour iced Ceylon tea under the sway of palm trees or hit the surf for an adrenaline-fuelled ride.”

Transfer from Kandy to Tea Country & Ella included.

Tea Country & Ella

Home to Sri Lanka's most famous export - tea. The rolling tea fields are simply stunning and in our opinion, not to be missed. Best visited by a wonderful train ride that winds its way through the hills, it's a great place to spend two or three nights wandering the plantations and soaking up the area's beautiful scenery.
