About This Trip

The Indian Ocean is a shimmering blanket of deep turquoise, studded with the most glorious of gems and on this trip, we want to immerse you in a couple of the brightest gems of all, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Sri Lanka is an island nation crammed with mystical beauty, sweeping jungle landscapes, ancient culture-worn temples and interesting experiences. By contrast, Canareef Resort in the Maldives is on a tiny island, every inch of which exudes paradise. Here, you will find complete tranquillity, to contrast with the bustling joy of Sri Lanka. 


Sri Lanka is beautiful to look at, there is no escaping it, but its true beauty lies in the culture of the super-friendly, warm people that make this island their home. On this trip, we don’t want to show you just the surface beauty, but to dig deep, interact with locals, taste their wares, hear their stories and discover exactly how this glorious country came to be.  


You will wander its otherworldly temples, where ancient religions blend seamlessly with the very rock from which they are built. You will explore the greatest cities in the country as well as spend time in the wilderness, searching for the elusive leopard and marvelling at the majestic elephants. 


Then it is time to jet across the beautiful Indian Ocean to seek out some peace and spend time focusing on soaking in the beauty that surrounds you in the Canareef Resort. From your villa, nestled amongst the swaying palms, you can take time for yourself, indulging in the glorious spa, feasting on meticulously crafted meals and exploring the hidden corners, idyllic lagoons and never-ending ocean that surrounds you.

Other Info


There are two sides to this trip, the fast-paced cultural-explosion of Sri Lanka and the contrasting slow-pace and idyllic nature of the Maldives. They balance perfectly to give you an in-depth cultural immersion of how Sri Lanka works, what its people and customs are like and then a few days in the Maldives to decompress, think about all you have seen and focus on yourself.  


In Sri Lanka, there are many highlights, but it's the people and the culture that we truly adore. While you will visit the wild, otherworldly cities, crammed with ornate temples, it is the days spent in the traditional Sri Lankan villages that provide a true insight into the origins of the culture.  Habarana village is situated in the wilds of Sri Lanka and here you will be made part of the village for the day, exploring with local farmers, picking cuisine that you will then cook for your traditional lunch as all around you birds call and butterflies float through the warm air. Then, close by are the incredible ruins of Polonnaruwa, an incredible way to finish the perfect day.  


Flying into Gan Island (Maldives) and arriving by speedboat to Canareef Resort is another highlight. While indulging in all the beauties of this island retreat are the real highlights, you will never forget this airport transfer as you jet across the turquoise ocean watching the white beach of your island getaway coming closer and closer.  You will be greeted with a warm welcome and a cold drink to signal the gateway to your paradise island stay.  



Your tour of Sri Lanka kicks off in the capital city Colombo. After exploring here, you head to the National Park of Udawalawe, before heading to beautiful Ella. Then it is on to Sri Lanka’s second city, Kandy, before heading into the rural heartland of Dambulla. The Sri Lankan leg of the trip finishes up in Negombo before you are transferred to the airport to meet your flight to Gan Island in the Maldives, where you will be transferred by speedboat to Canareef Resort.
