2 Day Private Trip to Galle with Overnight Stay


Start your day by being picked up at your hotel or airport in a comfortable car that fits your group of friends or family. Sit back, relax and let your journey begin! Your first stop will be Madu Lake, where you'll get on a scenic cruise along the river, passing dozens of mangrove, covered islets and stop to visit a 2000-year old temple. If you're interested and in for a challenge, you can even have some fun and get a fish therapy session on the spot. On our way, we'll stop to visit artisans where you can see craftsmen manufacturing face masks in a traditional way. Bonus: you can purchase a souvenir or gift! Your first day ends with a traditional dinner, and you'll have the chance to try different types of fish like Balay or Kelawalla which are native to Southern seas. Next day, early in the morning, we're going to Mirissa, a famous spot for whale and dolphin watching. Please note that this entirely depends on the weather and sea conditions on that particular day. Time to discover more awesome places! On our way back, we'll stop at Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery, home to seven species of marine turtles and other sea creatures. The day continues with seeing the stilt fishermen in action. They they stand in the middle of the water on high supports (stilts) made from sticks and twine. Last stop is Galle Fort, a Portuguese-built and Dutch-fortified 16th-century fort with a complex history. You'll hear stories about the city, from what made it a hub for sea trade to how it became a landing point for the island’s colonial rulers. Enjoy a local dinner before I drop you off at your hotel in Colombo and get your last recommendations for your next days.
