Enjoy a full day of unforgettable experiences: a boat safari on the Madu River, a visit to a sea turtle rescue center followed by a private tour of a moonstone mine and of the Dutch Fort in Galle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The adventure starts with a cruise along the Madu River which is home to different species of plants and vertebrate animals. Discover the rich ecological, biological and aesthetic diversity of this complex wetland ecosystem! You'll then visit a turtle hatchery where you can see both newborn and fully mature sea turtles.
After lunch at a local restaurant, you'll reach Meetiyagoda, Sri Lanka's biggest moonstone mine, and learn more about moonstones and the mining process.
A visit to Galle Dutch Fort will be the perfect ending to a day full of discoveries. Built in 1588 by the Portuguese, the fort features a unique blend of European architecture and South Asian traditions as a result of its colorful history and multi-ethnic population.
