Day 2Ancient City Of Anuradhapura

Travel back in time as you explore the ancient city of Anuradhapura. Meander amongst the age-old dagobas (brick stupas) which rival only the pyramids of Giza in size amongst the structures of old, the crumbling monastic buildings, and the vast Pokunas (pools). Hidden away in the dense jungle, this 4th century religious and political capital persevered for 1300 years before it was abandoned. Today, this sprawling city still serves as a religious centre and has been recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site. After an eventful day, turn in to your homestay for your overnight stay in Anuradhapura.

Day 3Trincomalee – visit Kuchaveli, a fishermen village

Transfer to Trincomalee. In the afternoon you will visit the little coastal village – Kuchchaveli. A breath-taking beach destination, Kuchchaveli is a vision of a paradise; its secluded beach affording captivating sunsets and wonderful strolls along the clear, soft sand. Dip your toes in the cool water as you gaze upon the vast expanse of turquoise waters – offering an air of serenity and tranquility for a relaxing holiday.
Along this part of the coast, fishermen are a common sight – ideal for those who want to learn more about this charming village and experience the slower rhythm of life of the local fishermen. Watch as fishermen set out on their boats early in the morning and expertly cast their lines above the waters. Add to the experience by trying your hand at deep sea fishing in Sri Lanka should you wish to.

Day 4Trincomalee – Leisure Day

You can use this day for leisure and relay at the beach or explore the surroundings.
The port city of Trincomalee has been a focal point of trade and a place of Hindu pilgrimage dating back to 400 B.C. Enter the Fort Frederick, which hosts many popular tourist destinations. This fort, built by the Portuguese in 1623, was subsequently used by the Dutch and British as a naval base. Entering via the fort, behold the famed Koneswaram Kovil (temple) built atop the Swami rock by a cliff where pilgrims from across the world gather here to pay homage to the Hindu God, Lord Shiva. Visit the popular lover’s leap, which hosts a monument that speaks of perhaps a more tragic than a romantic tale of a daughter of Dutch General who leapt into the ocean to her death.

Everything you needed in a cultural, exciting and in depth experience of Sri Lanka!
The team at Euro Lanka led by Yusuf is nothing short of exceptional. They go above and beyond to tailor the trip how you would like it but at no point does that detract away from the essence of traditional Sri Lanka. Yusuf started by customising our trip to suit our needs which many other tour companies don’t do. Then once there the service was impeccable, with local insights, stops and learnings from not only Yusuf himself, but his family, driver Namal and the locals enlisted to help show us the best possible time in Sri Lanka. We could not fault the trip at any point and if we needed something more or else, Yusuf would make it happen so we could enjoy the entire trip with a care free experience. Highly recommend Euro Lanka as you get a wholesome traditional and unbelievable experience with Yusuf and the team. Thank you!

Our 10 day trip with EuroLanka was one to remember.

Yusuf and his team were able to tailor our holiday to meet our needs and our budget.

EuroLanka holidays offers something deeper than the bigger tour operators. We were able to go off to beaten track and experience the real Sri Lanka. Accomodation was predominantly homestays which made the experience even richer. Amongst many other highlights, one that stands out in particular was when we were in transit between towns, he introduced us to a small fishing village where we came across a small group of school children who had not encountered foreigners before. First there were 3, then 10, then 20 and before we knew it there were 30 adorning school children following us around the village in awe of the 2 foreigners they’d never seen before.
This, as well as the time we spent with his family, are memories we will cherish forever.

There are no set rules on the tour. Whatever you want to see or do, Yusuf can make it happen. The epitome of a great man living in a beautiful country – this is reflected 100% through the EuroLanka tour.

Solo Traveller

I had gone to Sri Lanka on my own and i admit that i was not aware i was going to be solo for the duration of the trip, i had thought that i was booking within a tour. But i had a wonderful time with my guide and owner of EuroLanka, Yusuf and our driver Thissa. they got to know me and what i wanted to see within the country and made sure i had the best experience within the short 12 days i was there. They had even changed the itinerary and added different experiences on just to suit my preferences. The country itself was absolutely beautiful, i had the true local experience from visiting small fishing towns to eating dinner with local families. I had a beautiful trip and i would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to experience the authentic Sri Lanka.
