The Jewels Of Sri Lanka trip starts in Seeduwa and ends in Colombo. It is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 14 days taking you through Seeduwa, Yala National Park, Sigiriya and 5 other destinations in Sri Lanka. Jewels Of Sri Lanka is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Sri Lanka has just about everything a traveller could want – superb ancient sites, magnificent scenery, amazing wildlife, delicious cuisine, incredibly welcoming people and palm-fringed, white sandy beaches. Add to this a history touched by Portuguese, Dutch and British influences and a society with a strong and devout adherence to the Buddhist faith and we find an island-nation of incredibly rich diversity with much to offer. We discover all of this and more on a comprehensive journey of what has been affectionately called, due to its shape, the 'Teardrop Isle'.

“Bali was busy but great. Java was different and great! Had such a good time, with such a good group of people. Everything was organised to perfection by our guide. Accommodation was good. Well done.”

“Wonderful trip/cruise along the coast of Croatia, which is a must-visit. I thought Croatia's infrastructure was behind before visiting but was surprised as to how developed the nation is.

The duration, timings etc. was appropriate and our guide was great!”

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Is this trip right for you:
  • Though its equatorial position means fairly constant temperatures, the summer months in Sri Lanka are very hot with short, sharp monsoons in the southwest. Be sure to use adequate sun protection and drink plenty of water.
  • The Rock Fortress – or Lion Rock – of Sigiriya is spectacular. However, those with a fear of (or even an aversion to) heights may wish to sit the excursion out. Scaling the rock involved walking up lots of rough, narrow steps and tight walkways.
  • There are a couple of long travel days on this trip. Journeys may take up to five hours, but are a great opportunity to get to know locals, fellow travellers and the diverse scenery.
  • Tourism in Sri Lanka is booming, resulting in a huge increase in visitors to Yala National Park. Overtourism and lack of sustainable management practices are of major concern to Peregrine, so in order to reduce our impact on wildlife and the environment we are trialling visits in a less-touristed section of the park known as Block 5 or Veheragala. If we determine that Block 5 is also too crowded to visit responsibly, we will change our itinerary to visit Udawalawe National Park and Bundala National Park. Udawalawe is home to wild elephants, wild buffalo, sambar deer and leopards. Bundala is home to crocodiles and birds.This is the same itinerary we follow from September to mid-October when Yala National Park is closed annually for infrastructure development and rejuvenation.
