** This trip is designed for travellers who have received a full vaccination against COVID-19** We're really excited to start welcoming travellers to Sri Lanka again in a safe and secure way. This tour is specially designed for vaccinated travellers according to Sri Lankan government restrictions on travel around the country in 2021. Enjoy all of Sri Lanka's finest natural and cultural highlights including the spectacular Sigiriya Rock fortress; the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy; the beautiful surroundings and tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya; time in Yala National Park with its abundance of wildlife (including leopards, sloth bears and elephants); and plenty of relaxation time thrown into the mix too, be that at the beach or in the surrounds of your comfortable hotels. The trip runs smoothly as follows, allowing you to discover the cultural and natural highlights of Sri Lanka whilst abiding by guidelines around COVID-19 control: ➢ Arrival to be at least 14 days after your second vaccine ➢ On arrival you will need to produce the original copy of your vaccination certificate (English language compulsory) ➢ You stay in certified level 1 hotel accommodation for the first 7 days ➢ The first PCR test to be done within 24 hours of arrival – this will be done by the hotel where you'll spend your first night ➢ If day 1 PCR test results are negative, you are free to move to any other level 1 hotel and can visit approved sites within the biosecurity bubble ➢ After completion of Day 7, a second PCR test to be conducted and if negative you are free to go to the community and travel without restrictions

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
