This private Sri Lanka tour is ideal for travelers who have limited time but want to experience many of the highlights of the country, such as riding an elephant, climbing the Sigiriya rock citadel, visiting the Temple of the Tooth and staying at a tea plantation in the Hill Country.

Begin in Colombo, the vibrant capital of Sri Lanka. Stay in the former mansion of Sri Lanka’s most famous political family, and tour the city’s historic sites, bustling markets and interesting neighborhoods.

Next, explore the highlights of the Cultural Triangle, a region filled with fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Sites. En route, visit a private elephant sanctuary, where you can ride an elephant and even help bathe it in the river.

Tour the ancient Buddhist city of Polonnaruwa to see ruined palaces and temples, and monumental sculptures carved in stone. Visit Sigiriya, an ancient rock citadel that is Sri Lanka’s most spectacular site. See the Sigiriya Damsels frescoes, which were painted on the rock walls centuries ago, and climb to the top of the rock to explore the ruins of a fifth-century palace and take in panoramic views over farmland, forest, lakes and mountains. In nearby Dambulla, tour impressive cave temples filled with Buddhist sculpture and vibrant religious paintings.

Continue to Kandy, a former royal capital in the hills. En route, visit a spice plantation to learn how different spices—including Sri Lanka’s renowned cinnamon—are grown and harvested. In Kandy, see a puja (religious ceremony) at the Temple of the Tooth, a UNESCO site dedicated to a sacred relic of the historical Buddha. Enjoy a private performance of traditional Sri Lankan dance and fire walking. Also, visit a local market, and tour the Royal Botanic Gardens in Peradeniya.

Venture into the Hill Country, where verdant tea plantations cover rolling mountains. Stay at a luxurious Relais & Chateaux-affiliated hotel in a renovated tea planter’s cottage. Learn about tea picking and processing during a tour of a historic tea factory, and sample different types of high-quality Sri Lankan tea. During leisure time, hike through the tea fields or relax by the pool.

This tour can easily be extended with time in Galle, Tangalle, Yala National Park and other popular destinations in Sri Lanka.

We can also combine our private Sri Lanka tours with destinations in the Maldives, India, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman.
