Itinerary idea in detail

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.

Safe travels and until we meet again!

Warm regards,

Team at Green Holiday Centre

    Memorable and enjoyable 15 days in Sri Lanka with Green Holidays The green holidays organised our whole trip to Sri Lanka according to our suggestions and requirements. We had a perfect, peaceful and enjoyable 15 days holiday. Pradeep and Rashmi booked the accommodation, vehicle for travel and the the driver/guide within a very short time. They were very prompt in responding to our messages and accommodating our last minute changes. The hotels they booked were comfortable, check in was so smooth and the service was good. We were able to do much more than we anticipated because of their coordination. Our guide/driver Romesh was very polite, trustworthy and punctual. We travelled with Romesh from Colombo to Batticaloa, Jaffna, Kandy and Galle in his car without any incidents and reached safely at the airport on time for our return flight. We thank Pradeep, Jay, Rashmi and Romesh for making our trip a pleasant and an enjoyable one.

    Travel in peace and with Personal contact of Green Holidays We used the services of Green Holiday for our stay in Sri Lanka. They arranged the complete tour picking us up at the Bandaranayaka Airport and taking us to Jaffna, Batticaloa, Bentota, Colombo and Kandy including Ella. Green Holiday provided us with a Chauffeur/ tour guide ( Upul) who knew so much about SriLanka and its History and personally took care of our safety and was with us to ensure our check in at the hotels was flawless. Upul is a honest trustworthy person to rely on and was very caring. Thanks to Green Holidays for providing a knowledgeable person to be with us throughout the trip. We had the pleasure of dealing with Pradeep who planned out our trip to our liking with several changes requested by us and was available on the phone anytime 24/7 to discuss and review options. Rashmi from Green Holidays was our local contact in case of any emergency or for information once we were in in Sri Lanka. We were glad to have the assurance of a personal contact while on vacation. Green Holidays has earned our trust to make our vacation relaxing and trouble free. We recommend Green Holidays as a reliable trustworthy company to book your vacation packages. Their team worked vigorously to ensure our vacation is pleasant, memorable and safe.

    Great driver, great Organisation My boyfriend and i took a two week holiday on sri lanka. One week on road, one week beach holiday. Apart from a little mishap at the start when our arrival time was wrongly put at 09.30 instead of 05.30. However all it took was a quick phone to Dilan our driver who rushed to pick us up immediately. Due to delays on the way here and a little visa issue (always double check your passport numbers twice people) we arrived in the arrival hall at 07.30…once we had called the adventure began at 08.15. Dilan was an absolute godsend. Kept us entertained with facts about the areas we were visiting, made good conversation during our long journeys and got us there safe and sound every time. Dilan would also help us plan out our day and was honest enough when something was either gonna be a rushjob or whenever he felt we weren’t gonna get the best bang for our buck at a certain attraction. which we really appreciated, since we had completely missjudged the traffic and the distances on this journey. He also helped us handle check-ins and check-out and as we later found out when we made excursions of our own, he also kept pesky scammers away whenever we went to visit a place on foot. As for the rest of the trip everything went incredibly smoothly. Hotel staff were super friendly with us and safaris and other tour providers were informed well in advance so that we would literaly rock up, get into another car or jeep or were handed over to a local guide and be on our way right away. So long story short, we would like to thank Green Holiday and Dilan for making our trip the adventure of a lifetime and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone traveling in sri lanka.

    Absolutely reliable company with best guides. First of all, this company we used for arranging our whole vacation in Sri Lanka worked just perfect. We had no issue whatsoever. For travelling around the island for several days we had a guide Upul. He just was the best! Not only he was driving us around safe, he also knew about history, gave us all the explanations in a very interesting way. He took us in many great, beautiful and even fun places, always stood by our side, guiding us through crowds to the most interesting points and telling us all the information - about history, religions, politics, traditions, nature, you name it. Upul was truly able to answer any question we had. On top of that, he was always smiling, in a good mood, treated us with dignity and patiency. We truly appreciated it and thanks to him and a perfect organization we had the best time in Sri Lanka. I also want to say, that the company manager got in touch with us on the second day, asking how satisfied we were with Upul, checking if everything was ok. It was a nice thing to do. Overall, I truly recommend this company if you want to spend your vacatin with no hassle and great guiding.
