Kandy to Nuwara Eliya by train

Unique and incredibly scenic

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Kandy holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Inject something different into your itinerary and take the scenic route between two of Sri Lanka's best known and most admired towns. Winding through the hills of the tea plantations that stretch as far as the eye can see this is the ideal way to travel from the cultural capital of Kandy to the town of colonial heritage of Nuwara Eliya or 'Little England'. 

You'll sit in comfort in the observation carriages with panoramic views of your surroundings. Located at the front and rear of the train, these carriages offer unrivalled views of the heart of Sri Lanka. 

This journey lasts about 4 hours and with our private driver/guide service, you'll have your transfer and luggage waiting at the other end to take you from the station to your hotel. 

Speak to a Destination Specialist about adding this unique and memorable experience to your itinerary.
