This tour will take you from coast to coast of the island giving you a taste of the wonderful views, the interesting history and the local atmosphere that always manages to win the hearts over.

Day 1 Negombo

Your assigned chauffeur will greet you at the Arrival’s Lounge of the airport and escort you to your vehicle. Once you have settled in comfortably, you will be driven to Negombo. If your flight arrives prior to 6.30 am, then you will be taken to see the fishermen going about with their morning fishing activities. Ditch the bustle for a lagoon safari, the first activity if your flight lands later than 6.30 am. The Negombo Lagoon is a sight for sore eyes with the water taking on a green hue, a result of the tress reflecting on the water. Once you have admired the mangrove swamps of the lagoon and its fauna like cormorants, egrets, etc you will be driven to the Negombo beach for a relaxing sea bath. Retire to your room in Negombo for the night.

Be greeted by the feet of a lion carved into the sides of a staircase that will take you up. You will be blown away by the Sigiriya Frescoes; a series of painted women regarded as demigods or members of the king’s harem. Once you reach the summit, feast your eyes on the toy-like views of the surrounding area. After the tiring climb, rejuvenate yourself with a body massage and then lunch.
