Our "Undiscovered Sri Lanka" tour offers an opportunity to get off-the-beaten track and explore lesser known destinations on this fascinating island. On this 16-day adventure, you’ll discover rural areas of the country and enjoy authentic local experiences and cultural interactions.

Meet a Wayfairer representative upon arrival in Sri Lanka and transfer by private, air-conditioned vehicle to your first accommodation, The Mudhouse. This remote retreat, located near the village of Anamaduwa, is designed to have the feel of a traditional, rural Sri Lankan village. Accommodation here comprises simple thatched roof huts spread across 60 acres of forest.

Next, you’ll transfer to the ancient city Anuradhapura. See Buddhist temples, monasteries and places of worship which cover over 40 square kilometres. Discover the Unesco World Heritage site of Sigiriya Rock and the Dambulla cave temples.

From here you’ll head to Sri Lanka’s hill country where you’ll stay at the luxurious Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge, located 30 kilometres from Kandy. Discover the sacred sites of Kandy and feel free to explore the majestic mountains, green valleys and tea plantations surrounding the secluded and peaceful lodge.

Time to see Sri Lanka’s wildlife during a visit to two of its incredible national parks. First comes Gal Oya National Park where you can enjoy boat safari on Senanayake Samudraya Lake and jeep safaris in the jungle, followed by Yala National Park which is home to wildlife such as leopards, elephants and crocodiles, plus hundreds of bird species.

Explore Sinharaja, in southwestern Sri Lanka, after that. You’ll stay at The Rainforest Eco Lodge in a luxury cabin set right next to a tropical rainforest and get the opportunity to explore the surrounding forest and tea plantations.

Spend the final days of your holiday relaxing in Koggala, a small coastal town situated at the edge of a beautiful lagoon on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, at Tri Lanka, a tranquil hideaway on the banks of Koggala Lake. We will transfer you to the airport after the tour is over.
