Lankan Peninsula 7-day itinerary

Sri Lankan Day 1: seven-day journey

A representative from Seerendipity Tours will meet you and welcome you on this 7-day journey. You can unwind at your Colombo hotel after your drive to your next stop. Since most travelers are exhausted upon landing in Colombo, they choose to take it easy on the first day of their trip; there are no major plans for that day. Upon landing in Colombo, some passengers, primarily those from the United States and Europe, are exhausted after a flight of more than twenty hours.

Sri Lankan Day 2: seven day journey

The second day of your Sri Lankan vacation is packed with exciting planned activities, beginning with a visit to Anuradhapura, the ancient capital of the country. Having enjoyed the sumptuous Sri Lankan breakfast, you will check out of your Colombo hotel.

Sri Lankan cooking class

Delicious meals, including both local and international cuisine, are available at hotels all across Sri Lanka. Breakfast and dinner buffets are the norm at most hotels, but set menus or a la carte options are more common for lunch. Your private vehicle will whisk you away to Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle after breakfast. The triangle is nestled approximately 200 km from Colombo, and the journey there takes around 4 hours and 30 minutes. On the other hand, your guide will make brief stops throughout the route to show you interesting locations like vegetable gardens, a coconut plantation, and snack stops if you’re hungry.

Anuradhapura is a must-see on any 7-day Sri Lankan itinerary.

Beginning in the third century BC, Anuradhapura served as the capital of Sri Lanka. Anuradhapura served as the seat of the Sri Lankan government for almost a millennium, during which time hundreds of kings came and went. Ancient Stupas, palaces, gardens, and temples abound in this intriguing medieval city. The sacred bo-tree is the first stop on your city tour of Anuradhapura. Afterwards, you’ll come across numerous historic sites, including sculptures of Buddha. A city tour of Anuradhapura is a great way to get a feel for Sri Lanka’s rich history and culture. Last but not least on the city tour of Anuradhapura is the Jetawanrama stupa and monastery complex.
Anuradhapura is home to a wide variety of plant and animal life in addition to its ancient sites. Unspoiled woodland covers the vast majority of this deserted metropolis. Here you may easily see a few wild species, like monkeys, jackals, mongos, and monitor lizards.
About four hours will pass during your city tour of Anuradhapura. You will spend the next two nights at a hotel in Sigiriya after your city tour.

Sri Lankan Day 3: seven-day journey

The tripOn the third day, your tour will begin little earlier than usual. Near your accommodation, just 20 minutes away, is the Sigiriya rock fortress, your first site. Starting before breakfast, the day gets underway bright and early. If you go on a climb first thing in the morning, you may watch the sunrise while taking in the breathtaking views from the peak of the cliff.

Hiking up Sigiriya’s rocks

Sigiriya Rock is a challenging but worthwhile walk. Assuming there are few pauses along the route, getting to the mountain’s peak takes about two hours. Even if most of the buildings on top are in a ruinous condition, the lower elevated area offers breathtaking views of the countryside and is definitely worth visiting. Wilderness areas such as Minneriya National Park, Sigiriya Forest and Eco-Park, numerous lakes, rice paddies, and quaint villages sandwiched between forests are all on display for tourists. The verdant canopy stretches on forever, seemingly endlessly.
With a history that began in the fifth century AD, Sigiriya is among the world’s oldest cities. Among the various old structures on display at the site are paintings from long ago, groomed gardens, ornate caverns, swimming pools, and natural fountains.

tour of the ancient city of Polonnaruwa

Your unforgettable guided tour of the Sigiriya rock fortress ends with a return to your accommodation for breakfast. Polonnaruwa, another historic city in Sri Lanka and a UNESCO world heritage site, is a little bit like Anuradhapura and will be your destination later in the day. With origins in the 10th century AD, Polonnaruwa is the second-oldest city in Sri Lanka. Many sites, including palaces, temples, stupas, gardens, and the Polonnaruwa cultural museum, will be included on the city trip, which allows you to hop on and off at various points. Touring the city of Polonnaruwa takes around two hours.

A safari in Minneriya National Park

Visiting Minneriya National Park on the last day of your seven-day Sri Lanka vacation is a great way to see some of the island’s native animals up close. In a four-wheel-drive jeep, you’ll explore the forest’s winding, uneven roads in pursuit of wild species, including crocodiles, deer, leopards, monitor lizards, jackals, and elephants. Safari in Minneriya National Park is an extra, discretionary activity that can be done after the required Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa excursions, if time permits.

Sri Lankan Day 4: seven-day journey

Leaving after breakfast, you will be driven to Kandy, the capital of central Sri Lanka, in your own private vehicle. Kandy, the spiritual and cultural center of Sri Lanka, was also the final capital of the Sri Lankan monarchy. Among Sri Lanka’s eight world heritage sites, Kandy stands tall.
After making two pit stops, the trip from Sigiriya to Kandy should take about four hours. Dambulla Golden Temple is your first stop. Before lunch, you’ll make it to your Kandy hotel. Your Kandy city tour will begin in the late afternoon.

Temple of Dambulla

The Dambulla Golden Temple is a must-see for every traveler visiting Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle. It has been a house of worship for Buddhists for almost two thousand years, making it one of the world’s oldest temples dedicated to the religion. The main temple, made up of five naturally roomy caves, is accessible via a flight of steps. The inside walls of the caves are covered with Buddhist artwork, and there are 150 Buddha sculptures inside. Starting at the lower slopes of Dambulla Mountain, the ascent to the rock cave temple takes only around half an hour, making it far easier than the trip to Sigiriya.

Herb garden

Going further into Sri Lanka’s interior is the next stop after seeing the Buddha statues and historic paintings at Dambulla golden temple. Matale, a city well-known for its spices, is the second destination following a half-hour trip from Dambulla. As you wander through the spice garden, a knowledgeable guide will fill you in on the history, culinary applications, and health advantages of each spice.
Your Kandy city trip can begin in the late afternoon. While you’re touring the city, your guide will stop at many of cool spots. Kandy Lake, the Tooth Relic Temple, the Cultural Museum, the Gem Museum, the Kandyan Cultural Show, and the Kandy Upper Lake View Point are just a few of the fascinating places to visit.

A tooth relic’s temple

The island nation of Sri Lanka is home to thousands of temples spread out across its length and breadth, yet none of them compare to the sacredness and significance of the tooth relic shrine. One of the holiest symbols for Buddhists all around the globe is the left eye tooth of Buddha, which is kept in the shrine of the tooth relic, also called Dalada Maligawa. Tourists and Buddhists alike pour into Sri Lanka every day to see the Temple of the Tooth Relic, making it the country’s most popular attraction.

Kandyan cultural show

Performing traditional Sri Lankan dance and music, the Kandyan cultural event is held in the city of Kandy. Drummers, flutists, singers, and dancers all contribute to the show. Approximate running time for the cultural performance is one hour.

Sri Lankan Day 5: seven-day journey

On the fifth day of your seven-day Sri Lankan vacation, you’ll get to ride the hills country train, widely regarded as one of the world’s most picturesque rail journeys. Taking a train ride through the hill country is a favorite pastime for tourists, particularly those from other countries.

Traversing the hill country by rail

As you travel through the hill country by rail, you may take in the breathtaking views of the region’s undulating hills, verdant vegetable fields, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and forests.
From Kandy, you can take a hill country train that will take you to Nuwara Eliya. It takes around three or four hours to go by train from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. Your guide will be waiting to take you to your accommodation as soon as you arrive at the Nuwara Eliya railway station.

Tour of Nuwara Eliya.

Your guide arranges afternoon tours in Nuwara Eliya. Downtown Nuwara Eliya, Gregory Lake Esplanade, and Victoria Parks are all stops on the city tour.

Sri Lankan Day 6: seven-day journey

Your journey to Sri Lanka’s southern coast will begin today. From your starting point at 1800 meters above sea level all the way down to Yala, you’ll be at an altitude of just 50 meters above sea level. The vegetation, environment, and climate in Yala will be drastically different from Nuwara Eliya. Hotel check-in near Yala National Park is scheduled for midday.

Adventure at Yala National Park

At 2:00 in the afternoon, when the sun begins to set and the jungle becomes cooler, the safari in Yala National Park begins. Wild creatures begin to forage deeper into forests in quest of food and water when temperatures drop. Because it is so hot under the midday sun, the animals don’t move around much. After a four- to five-hour safari through Yala National Park, the day will conclude with supper at the hotel.

Sri Lankan Day 7: seven-day journey

The seventh day of your Sri Lankan vacation takes you on a journey to Colombo around the island’s southern and western coasts. As you take in the breathtaking coastline view, you’ll be driving along the coastal belt. South coast beaches, including Tangalle, Mirissa, Weligama, and Galle, will be yours to enjoy during your guide-led sightseeing excursions. You will have lunch and have the opportunity to explore the Galle fort, another Sri Lankan landmark that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
