We think that the best way to discover fabulous Sri Lanka is to have your own Car & Driver to take you where you want - flexible, fascinating and great value for money!
Your Car & Driver will meet you on arrival at the airport and will be with you up until you arrive at your beach hotel (we include a separate transfer back to the airport for your journey home, of course) You can then do as much or as little as you wish each day, with no mileage limitations and up to 8 hours a day for sightseeing and travelling. Pack in as much as you can - or have a day off if you wish! Your driver can help you plan sightseeing, and you just pay for any entrance fees locally.
Day 1 - Depart
Fly from Heathrow to Colombo, arriving the next day. Other departure points including Gatwick , Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow are also available.
Day 2 - Habarana
You’ll be met on arrival at Colombo airport by your Car & Driver and taken to Habarana, where you’ll check in to the Habarana Village by Cinnamon for a three night stay.
Habarana is a great base from which to explore much of the Cultural Triangle as it is roughly central within easy reach of Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura. It is also an ideal gateway to safaris in both the Habarana Jungle and the Minneriya Sanctuary, home to a great many Sri Lankan elephants as well as the leopard, loris and sloth bear.
Day 5 - Kandy
Drive from Habarana to Kandy, perhaps travelling via the Rock Temple at Dambulla en route. On arrival in to Kandy check in to the Cinnamon Citadel Hotel for a three night stay.
Sri Lanka’s second largest city, Kandy is famed for not only its history, artefacts and temples, but also for its tea, stunning scenery and lush botanical gardens. The most visited site is the famed Buddhist Temple of the Tooth, home to the tooth relic, said to be a piece of Buddha himself. There are also a number of temples including the Lankatilaka Temple and the Gadaladeniya Temple as well as some beautiful gardens such as the Royal Botanical Gardens. Surrounding Kandy are rolling tea plantations and mountainous, thickly forested hills that offer fantastic walking and hiking opportunities.
Day 8 - Kandy to Beach
Continue to the Riu Ahungalla, where your Driver will say goodbye as they drop you off. Spend a week relaxing on the beaches of Sri Lanka.
Day 15 - Return
Return to Colombo airport by road, for your return flight to the UK.
