To finish the day in style, share your first sunset in Sri Lanka with your new traveling companion!

After a picnic, return to the hotel. Between November and April, enjoy a Cruise and watch Dolphins and Whales! Unless you prefer to ride the wave with a surf-board or simply enjoy the pleasures of the beach!
    Day 3: Kalpitiya - Dambulla (via Anuradhapura )
    After breakfast, go to Dambulla where your horses are housed. On the road, visit Anuradhapura, the ancient capital where multitude of temples, palaces and dagobas are all witnesses to its glorious past.

Before leaving Dambulla, visit the Temple of the Rock where caves house an impressive collection of Buddha statues and outstanding colorful frescoes, describing the major stages of the life of the Enlightened One. After a last look at the Golden Buddha overlooking the temple, take the road towards the south and make a stop at a spice garden.

If you are a confirmed sports enthusiast, why not try the ascent of the Ella Rock where the view is breathtaking! After breathing the fresh air in the morning, head south to Tissamaharama. On the road, stop at Buruduwagala to visit the famous Buddhas Carved into the rock and Kataragama, a holy place for Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus as evidenced by temples and mosques together on the same site .

    Day 11: Tissamaharama - Galle
    Share the excitement of a final walk with your traveling companion in a beautiful flat landscape dotted with village! As the Yala Nature Reserve is so close, it is not unusual to see peacocks, deer and fox!
