From Kandy: Traditional Spices and Crafts Tour

1. From Kandy: Traditional Spices and Crafts Tour

Start your spice and crafts tour at Euphoria Spice and Herbal Gardens in Matale, where you will learn all about the spices and herbs of Sri Lanka and how they are grown and processed. Discover how to use them to their fullest in the spice gardens before visiting the Jayamali Batik Factory. Despite being named a factory, this craft industry isn't as large scale as you would expect from its name. Instead, it involves a few expert craftspeople, usually women, and a few apprentices. See the elaborate batik-making process and learn all about how this traditional cloth is made. Next, discover the process of wood carving and learn more about the types of wood used. Visit the gem museum, learn about the gem industry in Sri Lanka, and the gem crafting process to close out the tour.

From Dambulla: Sigiriya Rock, Village, and Minneriya Tour

2. From Dambulla: Sigiriya Rock, Village, and Minneriya Tour

See Sigiriya Rock Fortress, visit a local village, and go on a two-hour safari ride: with this tour you’ll make the most of a full day in Sri Lanka.   Start your tour at 8:30 AM with pickup at your hotel in Dambulla and head to your first destination, Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Rising from the central plains, the iconic rocky outcrop of Sigiriya is perhaps Sri Lanka’s most dramatic sight. Climb a series of narrow staircases to reach its top, passing frescoes and colossal statues of lion paws carved into the bedrock. At the top, you’ll be able to take in unforgettable views of the surrounding moats, water gardens, and quiet shrines.   Follow this experience with a tour of a local village, where you can take an oxen cart ride and experience the world from the view of a village farmer. Take a relaxing catamaran ride through a calm lake and walk through golden fields ripe with their harvest. Finally, watch a cooking demonstration that teaches you the basics of Sri Lankan cuisine, and taste the results for lunch if you choose.   Finish your day with a 2-hour safari ride through Minneriya National Park, home to elephants, 160 species of birds, deer, leopards, sloth bears, and more. At the end of a long but fulfilling day, you’ll be taken back to your hotel in Dambulla at around 6:00 PM.
