14 Day Tour

DAY 01

On the 1st day of the tour, we are visiting Negambo city after arriving at Colombo international airport.

-Move to Hotel or Hostel
-Lunch & Dinner
-1st Night at Negambo.




  • Weather: 22°C to 31°C, Wind E at 8 km/h, 71% Humidity

  • Province: Western Province

  • Town: Negambo

Negombo

Negombo is a modest beach town located just 10km from Bandaranaike International Airport. With a stash of decent hotels and restaurants to suit all pockets, a friendly local community, an interesting old quarter and a reasonable (though somewhat polluted) beach, Negombo is a much easier place to find your Sri Lankan feet than Colombo.
The Dutch captured the town from the Portuguese in 1640, lost it, and then captured it again in 1644. The British then took it from them in 1796 without a struggle. Negombo was one of the most important sources of cinnamon during the Dutch era, and there are still reminders of the European days.
The busy center of Negombo town lies to the west of the bus and train stations. Most places to stay, however, line the main road that heads north from the town center, with the beachside hotel strip starting about 2km north of town.

Things to do

When you stay in Negombo, you stay in one of Sri Lanka’s best locations for aquatic adrenaline – thanks to the blue waters of the Negombo Lagoon and the Indian Ocean. From leisurely boat rides and canoeing to fast-paced jet-skiing, water skiing, and windsurfing, we’ve got something for everyone. If you’d like, we can even arrange a ride on the iconic catamarans that line the shores of Negombo. And as a pleasure of the home of Sri Lankan hospitality.

Boat Cruise
Take a memorable boat trip down the Hamilton Canal, originally constructed by the Dutch and later fortified by the British in 1802, being named after Gavin Hamilton, the then Government Agent of Revenue and Commerce. The scenic and interesting journey commence from the popular seaside village of Negombo, aboard well-equipped boats with safety gear and knowledgeable personnel at hand. The first leg of this enjoyable cruise is on the placid waters of the historical Hamilton canal. Tour past the homes of the fisher families situated at the edge of the canal; get a glimpse of the adults at their various chores while little children playfully wave at the passing boats. Head straight for the Negombo Lagoon where the fresh fish market or “Lellama” is situated literally on the lagoon shores. Here one can observe every type of fresh catch - fish, cuttlefish, crabs, lobsters, shrimp, and even shark. You can also be one with nature at the mangroves, the famed Muturajawala Marshes; spot interesting wildlife like monkeys, water monitors, and an abundance of birdlife such as Egrets, Herons Kingfishers, and Cormorants eagerly waiting for their catch of fish. However, the highlight of the tour is the Fishing Village where one observes the fisherfolk preparing their nets for the next catch, see how the boats are launched to sea, the excess catch being washed and sun-dried to be sold as ‘dried fish’ before having a brief chit-chat with the friendly fisherfolk. If it’s an early morning tour watch the catamarans coming in with the ocean’s bounty; an awesome experience that promises some beautiful snapshots. After an exhilarating 2 hour tour, it’s back to Negombo gliding across the beautiful Hamilton canal. This tour promises an authentic boat ride and a great opportunity to experience the Sri Lankan fishing culture, its people, and their lifestyles.

Diving in Negombo
The waters around Negombo offer much better diving than many people imagine and this well-regarded agency can take you to meet the fish at over forty different reef sites.

Water Skiing in Negombo
Feel the wind on your face and the water flowing under your feet as you experience the thrill of learning to water-ski. The waters and its surrounding in Negombo is the ideal location for a safe and secure water skiing experience.

You can take with you a multitude of thrilling memories from this experience, only with a surfboard and a sail that sails through with the tides soaring through the wind. Being one of the most exhilarating water sports that combine action, strength, and balance, Wind Surfing is not for the faint-hearted but for the ones who would kill for the thrill. It is one of the most loved water sports of enthusiasts.

Trincomalee (Trinco) sits on one of the world’s finest natural harbors. This historic city is old almost beyond reckoning: it’s possibly the site of historic Gokana in the Mahavamsa (Great Chronicle), and its Shiva temple the site of Trikuta Hill in the Hindu text Vayu Purana. Most people just pass through the city on their way to the nearby beaches of Uppuveli and Nilaveli, but the town has some charm, plenty of history, and an interesting mélange of people.
Trincomalee’s superb deep-water port has made it the target for all manner of attacks over the centuries: by the British takeover in 1795, the city had changed colonial hands seven times. It's easy to spend a day or more exploring the ins and outs of the myriad waterfronts and the fort and its famous temple.

Things to do

Safari in Kumana
This 357-sq-km park, once known as Yala East, is much less frequently visited than its busy neighbor, Yala National Park. Consequently, it's a far less zoo-like experience and it never feels too crowded here, even during high season. Yes, the density of animals is lower, but it’s not rare to spot a leopard, along with elephants, crocodiles, turtles, white cobras, wild buffalo, and tons of birds. About a dozen bears live in the park, but they’re rarely seen.
There are modest exhibits at the ticket office near the park entrance. The park’s best-known feature is the 200-hectare Kumana bird reserve, an ornithological rich mangrove swamp 22km beyond Okanda. May to June is nesting season. There have been sightings of Sri Lanka’s very rare black-necked stork, but more commonly spotted, even outside the bird reserve, are Malabar pied hornbills, green bee-eaters, blade-headed orioles, and painted storks, among others. Watchtowers provide a terrific perspective for birdwatchers. Visitors regularly report seeing dozens of peacocks here.

Lagoon safari in Panama
Tour the local mangroves by slow boat and experience up close the great diversity of life below the water, on the marshes, and in the sky. New floating boats (with ungainly seats) will take you on three-hour wildlife-watching journeys.

Lagoon Canoeing

Turtle watch
**Important: you have to wait till 8.00 pm to see the turtles

Five species of turtles struggle ashore to lay their eggs on Rekawa Beach. Groups are led to nest sites to witness these beautiful creatures. Unfortunately, as groups are sometimes huge (up to 100 people; weekends are busiest), some nights the commotion can be deeply disturbing for the turtles. Turtles nest here all year round, but the main season is April to July. The rarest turtles to sight are the giant leatherbacks. The company uses certified guides and spotters; note that torches and flash photography are prohibited.

Things to do

Visit Hiriketiya
Hiriketiya is fringed by tropical forest and lapped by surging surf; this tiny horseshoe-shaped cove is fast becoming one of Sri Lanka's coolest beaches. For now, it's still somewhat off the radar and draws an in-the-know crowd of independent travelers and ex-pats. Hiriketiya's appeal is easy to understand: it's tucked well away from the highway traffic that curses many southern Sri Lankan beaches and there are no looming concrete hotels, only a handful of low-key guesthouses, for now.

Visit Thalalla
Talalla is Strongly contesting the award for Sri Lanka's most beautiful beach, Talalla is an utterly sublime curve of sand that's been only very lightly touched by tourism. Indeed as you walk the idyllic kilometer-long shoreline, virtually the only artificial features you'll encounter are small fishing boats. Nature feels very close here at the idyllic western end of the beach, where patches of tropical forest are home to swinging monkeys and snoozing iguanas.

Visit SK Town
SK Town is Just south past Matara, it's a signposted turning to SK. Town, A quiet village is away from the main A2 road and it’s a safe sandy beach break (Lakshawaththa Beach), perfect for beginners only less crowded and a bit cleaner than other places, plenty of guest houses and hotels in the village.

Whale watching
Whale watching remains a year-round leisure activity in Sri Lanka. These charming giants in the deep blue waters come under the category of marine mammals. Whales live merely in salty waters where it is believed to help the whales to recover rapidly from injuries and be resistant towards sicknesses. Mirissa, especially the Dondra point is a remarkable location to spot several species of whales such as the Blue Whale, Bryde’s Whale, Fin Whale, and the Sperm Whale. In addition to these marvelous Whales, you would also spot the adorable and intelligent Dolphins. The Bottle-nosed Dolphin, Spinner Dolphin, Risso’s Dolphin & even the Stripped Dolphin could be seen in Mirissa. The best season to watch whales in Mirissa is from November to April. During this time period, the ocean remains calm and warm, providing the most perfect environment to watch Whales and Dolphins in closer proximity.

Nightlife and party vibe
Several places on the main beach rev up the sounds as the evening progresses, and in high season things can get very lively with hands-in-the-air dance action and party people grooving on the beach.
One of the coolest beach hang-outs offers a cosmopolitan ambiance thanks to well-selected lounge tunes. Later on, expect live music or a DJ, dancing in the sand, and a party vibe.

Galle

Galle is a jewel. A Unesco World Heritage Site, this historic city is a delight to explore on foot, an endlessly exotic old trading port blessed with imposing Dutch-colonial buildings, ancient mosques, and churches, grand mansions, and museums. Wandering its rambling lanes you'll pass stylish cafes, quirky boutiques, and impeccably restored hotels owned by local and foreign artists, writers, photographers, and designers.
Built by the Dutch, beginning in 1663, Galle's core is the Fort, a walled enclave surrounded on three sides by the ocean. A key part of the Fort’s appeal is that it isn’t just a pretty place. Sure, tourism now dominates the local economy, but this unique city remains a working community: there are administrative offices and courts, export companies, schools, and colleges.
Most travelers are utterly seduced by Galle's ambiance, and it's undoubtedly southern Sri Lanka's one unmissable sight.

This Viharaya marks the landing place of Viharamahadevi, daughter of Kelani Tissa, who was destined to become the queen of King Kavan Tissa of the Rohana kingdom. According to the ancient chronicle Rajavaliya, it is stated that in the second century BC after Kelaniya was submerged by the sea due to a natural disaster, Devi the daughter of King of Kelaniya was cast to sea in a Golden Vessel to appease the gods, and washed ashore near the Muhudu Maha Vihara in Pottuwil. Later she became the main consort
of King Kavan Tissa of Ruhuna Kingdom, under the name Viharamahadevi. The park was closed from 1985 to March 2003 because of the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam) attacks.

Despite it being a sanctuary, a little private ownership is allowed where villagers from Panama own land within the area. There was a period when they were driven away by terrorists but now they have reclaimed their land and are living a happy farming life. While on a trip to the Kudumbigala Sanctuary, you can see the Helawa lagoon in its majesty and tranquility. Fishing in the lagoon is permitted and this is a practice that had been going on for many years before the area was declared a sanctuary. Towards the interior is a large complex of rock ridges and big granite boulders where somewhere in the second century B.C., one of the earliest cave-dwelling hermitages of bhikkhus was located. Traces of this ancient hermitage are seen even today with prominent Brahmin inscriptions under the drip-ledges of the caves.

In the unlikely event that a complaint cannot be resolved at the time, you should write to the Company within 28 days of returning home, giving your original booking reference number and all other relevant information. If you fail to take any of these steps you will hinder the Company’s ability to put any problem right and/or investigate it fully and any right you have to receive compensation will be reduced or completely invalidated.
b) Any dispute that may arise will be governed by Sri Lankan law and both parties shall submit to the jurisdiction of the Sri Lankan Courts.
c) All information given by the Company whether in writing or orally is to the best of the Company’s knowledge and believed correct at the time given and is given in good faith. The booking conditions shall take precedence over any other warranty or condition that may have been given.
