Sri Lanka Base Itineraries

As Confucius said (or, at least, somebody very wise), you’ve got to start somewhere – and when you’re creating your Sri Lanka holiday with Meraki Travel, you start with a base itinerary.

This base is where you get down to business. It includes the ‘You’d be mad to miss’ destinations in each region – you know, those places you simply must visit otherwise you’ll be kicking yourself once you get back.

When you’ve started with the base Sri Lanka itinerary, you can then tailor it to your exact requirements. Fancy adding new locations to your trip? Choose Passikudah for some relaxing beach time, or Nuwara Eliya to explore the famous tea plantations. And if you change your mind – no worries. Just click to remove them from your itinerary until you’ve got it right.

If things are happening too fast, don’t worry - you can slow it down by changing the pace of your trip. If six days isn’t enough, why not add more nights in the places that grab you most and extend your itinerary? Accommodation options can also be tailored to suit your personal style (such as something with a bit more character) or your budget (go luxury for that blowout). Plus, you can add experiences to your whole trip based on your interests. Whether you’re a foodie, can’t sit still, interested in learning about the local culture or looking for a unique, one-off experience, we’ve got it covered. Just choose the Foodie pack, Active pack, Authentic pack or Once in a Lifetime pack when you’re planning your holiday.

Once you’re happy with your trip, all you need to do is enter your dates, select your flights and then you can book up the whole thing.

If all that sounds like too many decisions in one session – choices, choices! – then just save your trip at any point and come back to it later. You can even create multiple trips to share with your significant other, so you can agree on the one that works for both of you. Simple really. And a lot of fun.

You might think Classic means safe. Or boring. But our Classic Sri Lanka itinerary is anything but. Visit the wildlife-rich parks, ancient temples and rock fortresses in the ‘Cultural Triangle’, soak up the lush scenery of Kandy and explore the bustling streets of Colombo. 

The base package gives you six nights in Sri Lanka, which can be extended to seven if you opt for the ‘relaxed’ pace (this adds one extra night in Habarana). If you like your comfort, you're in luck – all the hotels are a minimum of three star, with the option of upgrading in the itinerary builder if you want a bit more luxury. 

What’s more, the Classic trip includes all the must-see experiences, such as a trip to the iconic Sigiriya Rock and the Dambulla Caves, a safari in Minneriya National Park and a highlights tour of Kandy. Plus, to make this truly the trip of a lifetime, you can add on extras, including a hot air balloon ride over the jungle,  or – if getting ‘active’ is more your thing – you could opt for a scenic walk in the Knuckles Mountain Range.

All transport is covered, too; you get a private car and driver to escort you to all these locations. But if you want to take your trip that little bit further – and why wouldn’t you? – you can add Colombo, Passikudah, Nuwara Eliya, Yala National Park, Udawalawe National Park, Galle and Bentota to your list. What’s not to love?
