Big Day Out – By Air
An experiential day out with some stunning views for aerial photography!
See and be a part of some uniquely Sri Lankan experiences on this helicopter tour. With a packed picnic breakfast, depart Cape Weligama to the cultural triangle. Depending on guest preference, visit either Sigiriya – the 8th wonder of the world, Dambulla Cave Temple or Pidurangala rock.
Then, fly over the heritage city of Kandy, with a fly-by past the famous Adam’s Peak and World’s End at Horton Plains National Park en route to Tea Trails. Touch down at Dunkeld Estate, home of Ceylon Tea Trails. A scrumptious lunch will be offered at Dunkeld, Summerville or Castlereagh bungalows, but we recommend the picnic “Planter’s Lunch”, in a quiet little watch hut on the mountainside above Dunkeld bungalow.
Walk the trail back down to Dunkeld Bungalow and try our private “tea tasting” – a hosted experience with our resident tea specialist who will explain the diverse flavours of Ceylon tea, with an interactive tasting.
Depart Tea Trails to arrive back at Cape Weligama in time for high-tea at Cape Club overlooking the bay! A perfect day out.
