Take an overnight adventure tour to Gal Oya National Park which is the most untouched of all of Sri Lanka’s National Parks.

Boat safaris bring the spectacle of herds of elephants swimming from one island to another island in the reservoir. This thrilling adventure tour will also give you a chance to stay in Gal Oya Lodge which is one of the most unique eco lodges in Sri Lanka. Eight spacious bungalows are nestled in the forest canopy, each one specially placed to take advantage of the spectacular views.
