When you have an island with infinite possibilities, but you’ve only got a week to see all there is, you need a tour plan that gives you a taste of the best at a pace that is just right. This 7-night 8-day tour of Sri Lanka hits all the right notes and as the name suggests, will cast a spell to make you want to keep coming back for more. We have carefully selected destinations, activities and experiences and strung them together in a way that makes sense in respect of time, practicality and diversity. But it is also a plan we are happy to tweak according to your preferences and requests.

 

Please consider this tour as a guide to what is possible. We are always happy to hear your own thoughts, consider your own passions and interests and develop a tour that is even more fine-tuned around your personality and desires.

Summary of this Tour

Our Tour Manager (your soon to be local bff) will greet you at the airport and take you to the coastal town of Negombo. After exploring the area and recovering from your travels we will head out on the road to the cultural triangle with stops at the Dambulla Rock Cave Temple and Sigiriya Lion’s Rock. Next up is the hill city of Kandy with its abundance of history and culture.

After a quick train ride and exploring a bit of the tea country we drive down to the salubrious southern coast of Sri Lanka for some well-earned beach time. Please read our full itinerary for more juicy details.
