Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Day 01 – Arrival Adventure: Colombo Airport to Pinnawela

Your Sri Lankan adventure begins as you touch down at Colombo Airport. Look out for the welcoming face of our Green Holiday Centre representative holding a sign with your name. They’ll whisk you away to the awaiting car or coach park, where your English-speaking chauffeur eagerly awaits to kickstart your journey according to the carefully crafted itinerary.

 

First stop: Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage!

About 55 miles from Colombo, nestled along the Colombo – Kandy road, lies Pinnawela. This sanctuary, established in 1975, provides a haven for abandoned and wounded elephants. Witness over 65 majestic creatures, including adorable baby elephants from various origins and those born through a successful captive breeding program. Don’t miss the feeding and bathing sessions, scheduled between 9:30-10:00 am and 1:30-2:00 pm respectively, where the gentle giants frolic in the nearby river.

 

Next, it’s off to Kandy for a glimpse into the heart of Sri Lanka’s cultural heritage.

Kandy, the enchanting hill capital, once the stronghold of Sinhala Kings, now stands as a testament to Buddhism’s enduring influence. Explore temples, shrines, and monasteries steeped in tradition.

Marvel at the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, safeguarding Buddha’s revered tooth since the 4th century AD. This relic holds immense significance, cherished not only in Sri Lanka but throughout the Buddhist world.

After an enriching day, retire to your hotel in Kandy for a well-deserved rest.

Day 2: Day 02 – Coastal Charms: Kandy to Bentota

Rise and shine! After a hearty breakfast, set your sights on Bentota, but not without a couple of intriguing stops along the way.

 

First up, Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery.

Immerse yourself in the conservation efforts of the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. Witness the miraculous journey of baby turtles as they are nurtured and released into the wild, contributing to the preservation of these magnificent creatures.

 

Next, embark on a serene boat ride along the Madu Ganga River.

Explore the intricate mangrove ecosystem, home to a myriad of plant and animal species. Cruise past lush islands, each with its unique charm, from deserted shrines to bustling fishing communities. Don’t miss the chance to visit a Buddhist monastery, where friendly monks share their traditions and ancient wisdom.

As the day winds down, settle into your hotel in Bentota, surrounded by the tranquil beauty of coastal Sri Lanka.

Day 3: Day 03 – Colombo Calling: Bentota to Colombo

After a delicious breakfast, it’s time to head to the vibrant metropolis of Colombo for a day of exploration and shopping.

Navigate through the bustling streets, from the commercial hub to the leafy residential areas of Cinnamon Gardens. Discover the rich tapestry of history at Fort, once the bastion of British rule, and marvel at the intricate stone carvings of the Hindu Temple in Pettah.

Indulge in a bit of retail therapy at Sea Street, known for its goldsmiths, and explore the colonial charm of Dutch-era landmarks like the Wolfendhal Church.

Cap off your day with a visit to BMICH, a glimpse of the Avukana Buddha replica, and a stroll through Independence Square, steeped in the nation’s freedom struggle.

Retire to your hotel in Colombo, savoring the memories of a day well spent.

 

Day 4: Day 04 – Farewell, Sri Lanka: Colombo to Airport

After a final breakfast in the bustling city, it’s time to bid adieu to the tropical paradise of Sri Lanka. With hearts full of memories and suitcases packed with souvenirs, make your way to the airport for your onward journey.
