tour details

Walk in the trails of a Cinnamon Planter. The Cinnamon Experience isn’t just informative; it is also a hands-on experience, encouraging guests to get their hands a little dirty and strip down some Cinnamon sticks for themselves. Experience the chain of events from the growing of the trees, harvesting, piling and finally processing of the cinnamon in the aroma filled factory. Understand the history behind this precious spice and where it is headed in the realm of Sri Lanka’s export priorities.

 

 

Why choose this tour?

Cinnamon was first discovered in Sri Lanka by the Portuguese. They identified it as a wild tree, researching its benefits and designing a method to cultivate and harvest it. In time, cinnamon cultivation and export became one of Sri Lanka’s prime assets as Sri Lanka produces 90% of the world’s supply of high quality cinnamon.

This spice is used in both sweet and savoury dishes, has a highly fragrant aroma and is incredibly beneficial for health; used frequently in traditional ayurvedic remedies.

Cinnamon isn’t as well-known as its tea export counterpart. Many that live in and visit Sri Lanka are sure to see tea plantations and tea pluckers, but cinnamon cultivation is a very unique process, also a scarcely known operation. It is truly a one of a kind experience that is both interesting and different.
