Tuk Tuk Adventure From Day to Day
Day 01 ° Thursday
Arrival day ° 0,1 -10km
Welcome to Colombo! All times are good times to come… as long as you are at the hotel by 5 pm! An hour later we go say hello to our Tuk Tuks… which are in the hotel car park! And at least we drive in the hotel’s yard! When we know all of our TukTuk’s, it’s time helmet bears and/or cap juices! The evening is free. Gangaramaya Temple is one of the interesting places in the city centre.
Day 03 ° Saturday ° b,d
Hikkaduwa - Dikwella
86km ° 3-5h
The adventure with three wheels and 200cc continues! And we also continue along the palm-lined coastal road towards the ‘Dutch’ Galle. Sri Lanka (ex Ceylon) was under Dutch rule from 1658 to 1796! Galle’s fortress in front of Galle is one of the preserved memories from the Dutch era… and we visit it! Today’s lunch spot can probably be found at Mirissa Beach or around its famous Coconut Tree Hill! Our final stop of the day is today at Dikwella, where we stay on or near the beach! If you want to take a little walk, the famous Hummanaya Blow Hole is within walking distance.
Day 05 ° Monday ° b
Yala / Kirinda
TukTuk ° 0km
National park day and a holiday in holiday. First is National Park Day! For the NP we wake up when the roosters wake up if we don’t before and go to Yala NP for a gamedrive. Yala has a lot of different animals, but it is famous for its leopards… as well it is an ornithologist’s paradise. Elephants are Yala's biggest residents! Afternoon and evening are your time today… and your TukTukk is in our hotel yard if you feel for driving! :)
Day 07 ° Wednesday
Ella - Nuwara Eliya
56km ° 3-4h
Today we only have stunning, lavish and superb landscapes… and we will make even more ‘kodakstops’. We drive from bend to bend from Ella to Nuwara Eliya! However, the driving day starts with a tee break! We drive from breakfast to the Upa Halpewatte tea factory, where we have an hour-long tour of the hidden world of tea… and at the end of the tour we drink naturally tea! And we might have a second and third tea during the days kodakstops! Near Nuwera Eliya we stop at the Hakgala Botanical Garden, where we go to get a few gardening tips!
Day 09 ° Friday ° b
Day off ° 0km
A day off as you like! Kandy is a nice walking town with lots to see! Kandy is also the old capital of Sri Lanka, which was named bt Buddha about 2500 years ago to Lankadeepa! And yes, the city is full of history! Kandy is also a great place to buy souvenirs if you are still missing one! :)

Day 04 ° Sunday ° b,d
Dikwella - Yala
94km ° 3-5h
Today is a Go East day… what we did also partly yesterday! Along our way today is Bundala National Park, which is famous for its birds! So if you have a small ornithologist living with you, bring your binoculars!
Our final address today is Kirinda, which is next, perhaps the most famous National Park in Sri Lanka, Yala NP! Our accommodation will be on the beach or within a short walk from the beach! So yes, you can dive also today into the warm India Ocean!
Day 06 ° Tuesday ° b,d
Yala - Ella
116km ° 4-6h
Today, everything changes in the second half of our driving day… when it comes to the landscapes around you. The sea and beach palm trees turn into mountains and Lipton… into tea plantations. Many of your local grocery store’s tea bags come from Sri Lanka! Our address for the day is Ella, also called the Lipton capital of Sri Lanka! And yes… Your Tuk Tuk works also on the uphill roads of the tea area! Ella’s area is also known for its waterfalls and right along our route are Rawana Falls on the south side of Ella!
Day 08 ° Thursday
Nuwara Eliya - Kandy
86km ° 4-5h
Today we have the best TukTuk day of our lives… again, when we drive from the Buddha’s tooth famous Kandy. You may have noticed the Buddha temple and a second along our way. However, the most important Buddha temple in Sri Lanka is the Sacred Tooth Temple. The Holy Tooth is gleaned to us laymen three times a day! 0530am, 0930am and 1830pm.
Day 10 ° Saturday
