Start/Finish Times

Start time:
Meet 17:00 in Negombo



Touch down at Bandaranaike airport, scan the crowd for your airport transfer (he'll be holding the sign with your name obvs) and take a load off - this is the start of 10 days of fuss-free, flavour-filled fun. Get amongst the seaside vibes early with optional visit to the local fish market. Watch the locals paddle their fishy oruvas (canoes) into the lagoon and tuck into some fresh AF seafood while you're at it. If you've got time, give any jet lag the flick with a cycle around the Dutch-style canals and Buddhist temples. And tonight? Time to meet the gang over an included dinner. Cheers to that.

Down your breakfast and wave goodbye to the sea (for now) - we're headed to Sigiriya: the ancient rock-star of Sri Lanka. FACT: this place was built by the short-lived King Kasyapa over 1600 years ago. Lace up your Nikes and prep yourself for a climb as we tackle Pidurangala Rock. A popular spot for sunrise and sunset, the top of this baby sports 360-degree views of the surrounding valleys and Sigiriya Rock - so the trek is 100% worth it. BTW you don't have to choose between the two - you've got enough FREE time to catch the sunset and rise early for a sick sunrise too. Lucky bugger.

Rise and shine - this is one early morning wake up that you'll be glad for. We'll try beat the heat and head up the dramatic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya for sunrise. Heads up, it's a decent climb to the top but 110% worth it. Trust us. Tuck into breakfast at the top and take some time to explore the magnificent rock fortress and views of the surrounding plains. Later, we'll head to Dambulla Cave Temple - a World Heritage listed monastery that's been a pilgrimage site for over 2000 years. Later, there's an optional jeep safari through Minneriya National Park on the cards - aka a wildlife lovers wet dream.

We're headed to the second largest city in Sri Lanka this morning. In the arvo, we'll head to Dalada Maligawa - that's Temple of the Tooth to you and me. Tooth Temple got you WTF-ing? Well you read right, this temple houses a relic of Buddha's tooth so it's kinda important. Then: jump on board a tuk tuk for a (nailbiting) ride around the city and picturesque lake.

Today's letter is T. We'll stop in at Nuwara Eliya on route to Ella to check out a working tea plantation so you can immerse yourself in the sweet aromas of Sri Lankan tea culture. Sip on a tasting experience and try a cup or two of the world-famous Ceylon. Then, it's all aboard a scenic train ride to Ella. Forgot your camera? You're going to regret that.

Get your feed of pani pol (Sri Lankan pancakes) at breakfast because we've got a day of hiking mapped out for you. A fairly easy walk through tea plantations and rocky mountain paths, you'll be rewarded for all your hard work with some pretty specky views. Grab a quick snap of the famous Nine Arch Bridge before heading back to the hotel. Then: lunchtime! We'll head to a local home where we'll get a lesson in cooking traditional Sri Lankan curries and desserts from the pros. Spend the afternoon nursing your food baby by the hotel pool or head out and explore - it's up to you.

Been practising your best David Attenborough impersonation? We hope so. Today, we're headed to Udawalwe National Park for more wildlife then you can point a camera lens at. On our jeep safari you'll have plenty of time to search for lounging leopards, creepy-looking crocs, sloth bears and wild elephants grazing across the savanna. If birds are more your thing, there's a heap of them too. Tonight, we're spending a night under the stars at an awesome-AF big game camp (Google it, trust us). Tuck into dinner with the crew and share wholly sh*t moments of the day around a crackling campfire.

Enjoy a bit of a sleep in this morning before we make our way to the coastal town of Mirissa (see, told you we'd be back). This is your chance to sit back and lap up all the palm-fringed, white-sand vibes so crack open a fresh coconut, find yourself a hammock and let the island life soak in. You could build up an appetite with an optional surfing lesson along Mirissa Beach or lap up the sunset views from the coconut farm up the road. Either way, you've got plenty of free time to do whatever you want so make the most of it.

Oh what's that? A whole day to do whatever the f*ck I want? Awesome. If you're here between November and April though, we recommend jumping on an optional whale watching tour to spot the migrating blue whales off the shore. Largest animal in the world, you know.

Get up early for a sunrise stroll on the beach before we move on to the historic city of Galle. We'll swap six wheels for two as we cycle around the surrounding local villages - taking in the green fields, peaceful lakes and meeting some of the locals getting on with their day-to-day. With over 400 years of rich history, exploring the perfectly preserved colonial township of Galle is a must. Later, it's off to the Galle Dutch Fort for an evening walk around this UNESCO Heritage-listed site before we say farewell over one last supper with the gang. You've got Whatsapp, right?

If you're heading off after breakfast, we've got an airport transfer sorted. But if you've got time, there's plenty more to see and do here. Who knows, maybe one of your trip mates might be sticking around too - who says the adventure must end here.
