Sri Lanka's variety is what makes it such an incredible place, and this multi-stop trip has something for everyone and is the perfect option for travellers seeking a blend of adventure and beachside bliss. Winding its way North to South, this journey ticks off the best bits of this wonderful little island.


Why we love it

“Perfect for travellers undecided on their desired level of adventure, here one of you can surf or trek all day and the other can kick back on the beach with a cocktail, it’s easy. This trip will take you through the highlights of the Isle of Ceylon, you'll chat with monks in the north and explore the Cultural Triangle before taking a toy train south through rolling tea plantations and historic towns, ending the trip with a tranquil beach-side stay. Your private chauffeur guide will be with you up until the beach to make sure you experience the very best of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka’s experiences are possible year-round, so it’ll be ready and waiting whenever you’re looking to travel.”

Time to experiences one of Asia's most scenic train rides. You will be dropped at the station for the scenic toy train ride through the beautiful tea country and hills. The train time depends on your next hotel choice, but is generally between 3-6 hours.

Tea Country

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.
