About This Trip

Sri Lanka is packed with beauty. Its natural beauty is indisputable, with powder-soft white beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, and thick, jungle-covered mystic mountain ranges dominating its interior. With eight UNESCO sites within such a small country, Sri Lanka has so much to experience. 

 

We split this incredible tour between that duality of Sri Lanka, the glory of its natural wonder and the spectacle of its temples, towns and cities. With so many ancient capitals and places of worship, there is an incredibly mystical side to this island nation. Crumbling temples and stone shrines show deep and lasting devotion to Buddha. The chaotic city of Kandy is a riot of colour, steeped in Buddist history, whereas the capital Colombo, is filled with rich shaded boulevards, colonial architecture and food that will bring your taste buds to life.  

 

On the natural side, Sri Lanka has a spectacular coastline, fringed by beautifully kept white beaches, its seas alive with turtles, whales and dolphins.We will visit local villages and schools, where you can really immerse yourself in the local way of life, understanding just how different the culture is from ours, plus learn about traditions and make friends for life, take a jeep safari in Yala National Park to try and spot some leopards, elephants and bears, as well as over 90 species of bird.  

 

Sri Lanka is a treasure, and on this discovery tour, you will find out exactly what makes it glitter.

highlights

Sri Lanka is so rich in culture, history and natural wonder that it is tough to encapsulate everything this amazing country offers in one tour, so we wanted to make sure that we chose carefully and covered all the bases. We want you to see Sri Lanka like a local while packing in all of those incredible sights along the way and with this tour, we think we have nailed it.  

 

The culture and customs we have sorted with time spent in Kandy, Colombo and visits to the Ancient Capitals and Sigiriya. You travel by first-class train through the extraordinary scenery between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya and visit the endlessly exotic UNESCO site of Galle City. The wild side we have covered with trips to an elephant sanctuary, a turtle hatchery, time spent dolphin and whale watching and some time in the dramatic Yala National Park searching for the elusive leopard.  

 

We also want to make the most of the fantastic local produce of Sri Lanka, so as well as visiting tea plantations and spice gardens, we will ensure you get a real taste of Sri Lanka with your included evening meal every night.
