Itinerary

Day 1: Bandaranaike International Airport - Kalpitiya

Welcome to Sri Lanka. Your chauffeur will drive you north to the peninsula of Kalpitiya. If your flight lands in the morning, make time to visit Negombo to watch the return of the fishermen in their Traditional Dugout Canoes and stroll in the famous Fish Market. As soon as you get closer to Puttalam, vast Coconut Trees Plantations give way to salt marshes. You drive along the lagoon up to Kalpitiya, the farthest point of the peninsula. Check into your hotel and relax!

Day 2: Kalpitiya

Enjoy the beach! If lazing on the beach is not your "cup of tea". You can try Kite Surfing (From April to September)! Or hop on a boat to see Dolphins and Blue Whales (from December to April). Unless you prefer Snorkeling by the corals !

Day 3: Kalpitiya - Anuradhapura

You start the day by a Jeep safari in the Wilpattu National Park, which was reopened to visitors in 2011. This safari will take you through the tropical forest and lakes. (Willu Pattu means "land of lakes" in Sinhalese language). After this getaway in the wilds and close encounter with wildlife you continue north towards Anuradhapura. Check into your hotel. Enjoy the beautiful lights reflecting on the Stupas and Temples as the sun sets while walking or cycling through the ancient city.

Day 4: Anuradhapura - Jaffna

Today you’ll rise early with the sun and watch the sunset on the Jaffna Peninsula! Enjoy this long journey that will take you through the thousand and one details that punctuate the everyday life of Sri Lankan cities and countryside! Stop for some nice snaps at the Elephant Pass, the isthmus which connects the Jaffna peninsula to the rest of the island. Check into your hotel. In the evening, you will attend the evening ceremony at Nallur Kovil Temple and then stroll in the bustling night market. Quite something!!

Day 5: Jaffna and surroundings

After breakfast, you will visit the Jaffna Town: the Fort, the fishermen village and its colorful houses, the ruins of the Sankili Palace, the famous library and the Archaeological Museum. In the afternoon, go to Point Pedro, the farthest northern tip of Sri Lanka. This trip will give you the opportunity to experience local life while and discover unknown treasures.

Day 6: Jaffna – Bandaranaike International Airport

You start the day by the visit of the Dambakola Patuna Temple, erected beside the Indian Ocean and close by the place where the Nun Sanghamitta disembarked from North India. She was then carrying a seedling of the sacred Bo Tree under which Buddha was enlightened in India. You continue your drive along the north coast until you reach Naguleswaram. Visit the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and then take a walk on the shore to see the renowned holy pond filled with healing waters. In the afternoon, you board a domestic aircraft from the Palaly airport that will fly you to Colombo. Transfer to the international airport three hours before your flight departure. End of our services.
