The lesson plan and schedule are dependent not only on the weather conditions, but also your progress. Everyone learns at a different pace and progression between individuals may vary.

No wind no problem

Because lessons are dependent on Mother Nature, Valampuri Resort will offer you the opportunity to join an excursion of your choice on any of the days that there happens to be no wind. Chances of this happening during the windy season are very rare, but Valampuri Resort would like to have you covered! You will have a choice between:

  • Lagoon tour - explore the islands and mangroves in the lagoon with Valampuri Resort by boat
  • Cooking class - 4-hour cooking class where Valampuri Resort shows you how to source, prepare, and cook traditional Sri Lankan food
  • Sightseeing tour - Valampuri Resort will take you to Anuradhapura. It's one of the ancient capitals of Sri Lanka, famous for its well-preserved ruins of an ancient Sri Lankan civilization
  • National Park tour - take a tour of the Wilpattu National Park, one of the oldest national parks in Sri Lanka
  • Kobus De Wet
