A perfect tour if you are sure you want to simply explore the key classic sites of the country followed by relaxing on the beach for a few nights before you head home. Start your tour in Kandalama at the heart of the popular Cultural triangle. The last two days are to relax, reflect and write our memoirs at a handpicked beach resort before you make our way home.
You can take this tour as is or discuss your preferences with us to create your own tailor made holiday to Sri Lanka. Consider combining this tour with a South India journey or adding Maldives for a beach stay instead.

We very much enjoyed Sri Lanka and appreciated your efforts in putting together a good itinerary in what was a really a short time and close to the planned departure date. The hotels were good and met our expectations, especially the Amaya Hills in Kandy. We were very fortunate with our driver: he was very experienced in hotel management and kept us highly informed about the places we visited and the local site guides he selected were excellent. Qatar Airlines were excellent and our stay in Doha was superb.
Overall we really enjoyed the holiday and would be very happy to recommend Indian Odyssey for future travels.
