Begin the tour with a night at Horathapola Estate to recuperate after your flight. If time allows, you may wish to explore the property’s plantations by bullock cart or bike. Traditional cooking classes are also available, and you can go on a guided walk around the local village.

2 - 3

Today, drive to Kandy. Stop off at the iconic Temple of the Tooth in the city center before continuing out into the foothills. Your final destination is the traditional tea planter’s bungalow Ashburnham Estate which is nestled in the Knuckles mountains. Knuckles is a protected wildlife area due to its spectacular rock formations and the rich variety of flora and fauna that thrives here. Spend the evening relaxing by the pool, in the cozy library by the fireplace, or on the veranda.

This morning, rise early for breakfast then trek your first trail to Madulkelle Tea & Eco Lodge, a boutique hotel surrounded by breathtaking cloud forest set on a working tea plantation. The views from all areas of the property are sensational.

4 - 6

From Madulkelle, continue hiking along undulating mountain paths through forest and past waterfalls until you reach the spectacular Santani Wellness Resort. The next day, enjoy a well-earned rest and this award-winning property. Make sure to indulge in some authentic Ayurvedic treatments to restore your energy – mind, body and soul.

6 - 7

Depart from Santani feeling peaceful and pampered and journey deeper into the island’s verdant hills. This dramatic landscape of tea fields, waterfalls, grassy plains, and towering peaks can’t help but captivate the imagination and make your spirits soar. Your final destination is a traditional tea planter’s property that has been caringly upgraded into one of the best luxury hotels in Sri Lanka.

Walk from your bungalow to the next in the Ceylon Tea Trails collection. There are five bungalows in total, each as exquisite as the last and set within majestic scenery.

Your final hike takes you to Ceylon Tea Trails – Castlereagh which is set on the shores of the stunning Castlereagh Lake. The following day is for rest, or you can opt to explore the surrounding tea estates on foot or by bike. Guided tea factory tours are also on offer.

Take a seaplane from Castlereagh Lake to Colombo for a speedy transfer back to Sri Lanka’s commercial capital and more sensational views. Spend your final evening in Sri Lanka at one of the city’s exceptional restaurants such as The Gallery Café or the renowned Ministry of Crab.
