Leisurely & remote
17 days/16 nights
Take it easy on this slow trail that combines Sri Lanka’s most historic and cultural sites with some of its remotest regions, including Gal Oya National Park, surrounded by Veddha villages home to the island’s hunter gatherer tribespeople. The itinerary also travels to Santani, a destination wellness resort near Kandy, and to Nine Skies near Ella – perfect for scenic picnicking and secluded walks. Finally, the holiday ends on a blissful west or south coast beach.
*While the varied treatments, facilities and yoga classes within Santani’s spectacular tri-level spa are open to guests staying any number of nights, if your clients wish to indulge in a targeted wellness package, they would need to stay a minimum of seven nights.
