Minimal Travel

11 days / 10 nights

If you have clients keen to take it easy and enjoy a combination of the Hill Country and the coast, this is the ideal go-slow journey. In the hills, activities such as remote walks, hilltop picnics and spectacular scenery come as standard, as do visits to tea factories to learn about the centuries-old art of tea production. Castlereagh Reservoir is picturesque and as well as wandering trails through tea estates, guests can also enjoy scenic boat trips and hilltop picnics. This journey could be done by sea plane or by road, or a combination of the two. Flights travel between Colombo and Castlereagh Reservoir, and from Castlereagh Reservoir to Koggala, near Galle.

*You could include Galle in this itinerary with stays at KK Beach, Why House OR Kahanda Kanda, or opt for The Last House located on quiet Mawella Beach near Tangalle.


Highlights:

  • Spend the first two days recuperating and acclimatising at a garden-wrapped boutique hotel
  • Get active in the hills, exploring tea estate trails, swimming in waterfalls and enjoying scenic picnics
  • Finish up the holiday on the laid-back west coast, in comfort and style
