When you arrive in Sri Lanka, you will be able to find one of our representatives from Next Travel Sri Lanka at the Arriving Lounge of the Colombo AirPort paging your name. Once your identity is confirmed, you will be guided to the luxurious and comfortable vehicle provided to you, and then the journey to Colombo would begin. We will be taking the Colombo – Katunayake expressway, and it would approximately take around 40 minutes to Colombo, the commercial capital of the island. However, the journey to Colombo would never be boring at all. It would provide you with a perfect overview of the developing country, as you travel by the bustling streets of the city. Meanwhile, you might even get a chance to grasp the true essence of Sri Lankan lives as you travel along since this city is home and a major destination for Sri Lankans of all social statuses. The first stop of this tour would be at the Fairway Colombo, the city hotel at the heart of Colombo, offering you smart luxury accommodation facilities. And yes, we believe that the night you spend there would offer you the perfect comforts that your heart longs for following a tiring journey overseas.
The second day of this adventure tour begins with a 4-5 hour drive, as you head to Sigiriya, which is a scenic village located in the suburbs of the ancient city, Dambulla. Getting a perfect head start for the exploration out there, you will first visit the Dambulla Cave temple. It is one of the most important religious and cultural attractions on the island, which holds an impressive historical background with it. Besides, as it is a temple complex with several caves, located on a rocky terrain which is around 200 m above the surrounding, the experience it offers is indeed fascinating. Further, being the best-preserved cave temple of the country, and a UNESCO world heritage site, the value of visiting this attraction is further enhanced. Next, there is something excited lined up for the day! Yes, you will get an opportunity to experience the thrill of exploring the amazing Sri Lankan wildlife, as we have scheduled a jeep safari for you, at the Minneriya National Park. Of course, it would be one of the best experiences that you can witness on this beautiful island, and spotting a wide array of wildlife in their natural habitat itself will surely surprise you. Following this exciting adventure, you will check in at Other Corner Habarana on a bed and breakfast basis, in order to enjoy the relaxation for the day. The third day of the adventure tour begins with a wonderful climb, and that is to the Pidurangala rock. It is a historical site with a religious value, as it houses some of the ancient ruins from a Buddhist temple. However, once a traveller reaches the summit of the rock, he would witness breathtaking sceneries of the surroundings, along with the sight of the Sigiriya rock fortress which is located in very close proximity to this rock. And yes, you would also be able to capture some perfect shots on the rock summit, that would amaze any! Besides, day 3 of the adventure tour holds another fascination, and that is none other than kayaking at the Kandalama lake. Experiencing the tranquillity of nature, while enjoying the charming beauty of the surroundings would surely enhance the delight of your kayaking experience out there. However, the excitement of the third day won’t end there! Of course, how to miss the Sigiriya rock fortress? Being a UNESCO world heritage site, and an amazing cultural treasure trove, climbing this rock fortress happens to be a must! The climb would take around 1-2 hours depending on your speed, and the ruins of the water garden, still functioning water fountains, mirror wall, Sigiriya frescoes, and the ruins of the ancient palace, will surely prove to you that introducing this attraction as the eighth wonder of the world is really worth it. However, the third day of this adventure tour concludes as you descend this rock fortress. Still, we assure you that this day would be one of the best days in your travel diary.
The fourth day of the tour sets to offer you a unique, yet wonderful experience. And yes, it is all about trekking at Knuckles! The Knuckles Mountain Range, with its peaks in the shape of the knuckles of a clenched fist, offers a number of trekking trails for adventure seekers. Besides, it is the palace where the Knuckles Forest reserve is located. Thus, the flora and fauna it houses, along with the gushing waterfalls, create an impressive atmosphere for one to relax, and enjoy the true essence of a trek. Moreover, diving into the deep of nature, amidst the mist-laden mountains out there, will surely add a bunch of wonderful memories to your travel. Further, to grab the best out of this amazing experience it indeed requires a good time. Therefore, we have only scheduled this activity for the fourth day of the travel. Thus, keep calm! You’ll have ample time to get a good rest after a tiring, yet a lifetime experience at Knuckles this day. And it is at  Sir Jones Bungalow, that you will relax and spend the night that day.
And yes, something interesting is coming up on the fifth day of the adventure tour as well! Believe us, it is white water rafting! Excited, isn’t it? We are sure you are! On this day, we are ready to head to the best place for white water rafting in Sri Lanka, which is none other than Kitulgala. Of course, the playful waves of the Kelani river that flow through rocks in this area provides a perfect atmosphere for white water rafting in Kitulgala. And indeed, it would be a thrill for a lifetime, that would offer you a whole bunch of memories to reminisce. Also, you will be able to taste a plate of rice and curry, full of mouth-watering flavours of the Sri Lankan authentic culinary styles. Indeed, it would be one of the best meals that you have ever enjoyed in your lifetime, and we believe that it would certainly be a wonderful addition to this day filled with thrill and excitement. However, the fifth day of this wonderful adventure tour would conclude as you arrive at the Rafters Retreat, to relax and spend your night.
And on the fifth day of the tour, we would create you opportunities to experience yet another amazing, and exciting activity. Yes, it would be the day for waterfall abseiling in Sri Lanka! Sadun Falls is the place that we have chosen for this thrilling activity, and there, you can experience scaling a 105-meter high waterfall and down the rock slope. Once successfully abseiled, you will surely feel a sense of great satisfaction, and triumph, and indeed, fun for a lifetime. However, even though you are an adventure seeker, you might most probably long to do some shopping and collect some souvenirs from Sri Lanka as well. Of course, you might find a few boutiques with such fancy items around the places you visit. Still, we are ready to offer you a wonderful shopping experience, that caters to all your heart’s desires. Thus, after enjoying the waterfall abseiling, we bring to an end the series of adventurous activity offered to you in this tour and then head back to Colombo. There you can enjoy any final sightseeing or shopping, to conclude this tour in the best way!  And once again, it would be at the Fairway Colombo, that you would relax, and spend the night that day.

Hence, be mindful to bring compatible devices or voltage converters. Besides, it is always better to have with you a power bank, rechargeable lamp, etc. because emergency power cuts could occur once in a while.

Hence, if you are concerned with regard, it is always better to ask about these little things before placing your bookings. Besides, finding accommodation during the off-season might not be that hard. Still, it is always the best to hunt for accommodation a few days earlier, just to travel with pace in mind.

Let it be the luxurious hotels that offer you both local and international cuisine, and the small boutiques or the street stalls that amaze you with their mouth-watering tastes, all of them are impressive beyond words. However, local dishes might be a bit spicy. Thus, it is always better to inform the cook earlier, if you prefer less spicy food.

As you might already know, Sri Lanka is a country with a rich cultural heritage. Thus, we encourage you to follow the below ethics when visiting religious places in Sri Lanka.  
  • Most religious places encourage visitors to wear a light colour attire that covers their body, shoulder to knees. Thus, if you are visiting a religious place, make sure that you do not wear shorts, crop tops, skinnies, etc. Also, having a shawl with you will help you cover your body at such times, in order to blend with the culture there.
  • Visitors enter the religious place barefoot and caps, hats, scarfs, etc. are removed before entering the site.
  • The tranquillity of the religious places in Sri Lanka is simply impressive. Hence, make sure you mind your behaviour.
Indeed, safety is first! So, it is always better to keep an eye on animals, especially on the stray dogs on the roads. Be mindful when feeding them, or touching them. And by chance, if a stray dog or any other animal bit you, make sure you arrive at the nearest government hospital, and they will make sure to treat you accordingly.
