Go white water rafting from here too on the River Kelani (of Bridge on the River Kwai fame) and the elephant orphanage at Pinnawella is only an hour or so away.

Day 7 and 8. Only a couple of hours away is the stunning Hill Country of tea plantations and mountains where you can hike up Adam’s Peak and watch the sunrise, go mountain biking, visit a tea factory or just relax at one of the beautifully restored bungalows at Tea Trails where swimming, tennis and cream teas are part of the daily routine.

Day 9 – 14 Today you will take the road down to the beautiful southern coast of Sri Lanka where you will spend 6 nights at the newly opened boutique hotel Number One Mirissa, perfectly positioned for body surfing, snorkelling, whale watching or just some lovely sunbathing. The food is fabulous – the accommodating chef will make you anything from club sandwiches and chips to lobster thermidor – all equally delicious.

This itinerary particularly suits families with slightly older children as there is an element of travelling involved.

Prices for a family of 4 start from £1950/person including international flights.
