Surf and Hiking – 15 days
It is a 15 day journey very full of adventure and excitement for people
with a very youthful spirit, young people, teenagers and children
It is a circuit with a lot of nature, thrilling safaris through the most remote jungles of the country and rafting through rivers of unparalleled tropical beauty.
And finally, a few days on the beaches of southern Sri Lanka to practice windsurfing, kitesurfing or any of the water sports offered in this part of the island.
Mirissa Bay is famous for those who are starting to learn about this wonderful water sport.
We will also find intermediate surfers, present to improve their technique.
The truth is that in the south of Sri Lanka there are waves for all levels, depending on where you surf or kite surf.
In addition, blue whales, dolphins and other large mammals migrate from November to March, which you can see during your trip to Sri Lanka.
The best time to surf in the southern of Sri Lanka is between November and March, when the environment is drier and a little cooler.
Despite everything, temperatures can reach 30-40 degrees Celsius, so it is advisable to practice it early in the morning or in the late afternoon.
Furthermore, offering an intermediate level of waves, the best height can be encountered during the early hours of the day and the end of the afternoon.
Mirissa, in fact, can be visited all year round and you will have the opportunity to explore the wonderful beaches of this mythical bay.
And for the adventure to be complete, this circuit has 3 safaris: one to see elephants in Minneriya National Park, another to watch leopards in Yala, and another to see birds in the Madu Ganga River.
The SRI LANKA EDEN TRAVELS team, located in Kandy, will always be attentive to you in order to make your trip to Sri Lanka a unique and wonderful experience.
