Arugam Bay Explorer

 - Price On Application

Our Arugam Bay Explorer tour is for those seeking simplicity and utter relaxation. Escape the stresses of daily life and retreat to the quiet areas of Sri Lanka, places which offer a laidback atmosphere and picturesque surroundings. The three main locations of this itinerary – Arugam Bay, Ella and Negombo – offer a welcome breath of fresh air for those seeking unpretentious accommodation and utter escapism from the outside world. Spend days on the beach surfing or enjoying some exhilarating water-sports; take the train from Kandy into the tea country, one of the most spectacular rail journeys in the world; trek through the lush hills surrounding Ella; explore the still-active 17th century canal system on the north-west coast by bike or by boat, and go on a jeep safari in Uda Walawe National Park, which is home to huge herds of wild elephants. The nature of this itinerary means that it is only available with Simply Red and Classically Red properties – but, as always, it can be tweaked to suit your preferences.
