About This Trip

Visiting Sri Lanka is like stepping into a dream. Its otherworldly temples and cities are backed by deep jungle landscapes, ethereal rock formations and are fringed by golden beaches. Foremost in your visit is getting to know the friendly, welcoming locals and experiencing their unique approach to life, backed up by a devotion to religion and community that gels the island together. 

 

Intense nature is the backdrop to every experience you have in Sri Lanka, whether you are soaking in the neverending landscapes from the top of the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, or are immersed in the rich biodiversity of Udawalawe National Park. You will witness the silent beauty of the island on a scenic train journey from Ella to Nanu Oya and experience the gentle pace of island life on an immersive village visit. 

 

Sri Lanka is beautiful to look at, there is no escaping it, but it's true beauty lies in the culture of the super-friendly, warm people that make this island their home. On this trip, we don’t want to show you just the surface beauty, but to dig deep, interact with locals, taste their wares, hear their stories and discover exactly how this glorious country came to be.

highlights

Sri Lanka is rich in diversity and every facet of it is enchanting, deeply interesting and entirely memorable. We have tried to cover every element of this beautiful country on this tour to give you a complete flavour of the people, the places and the culture that binds them all together. Every day is filled with highlights, but here are a few of our very favourites.  

 

We can't mention highlights without talking about your time in Udawalawe National Park and its ethical elephant sanctuary.  It is not often that you get a chance to get up close and personal with some of the world’s largest creatures and not only this, but you get a chance to go on safari in the National Park to see if you can spot them in the wild, along with leopard, sloth bear and a multitude of colourful birdlife. 

 

While you will visit many stunning temples and soak in their tranquillity, majesty and otherworldly feel, there are few as stunning as Ridi Viharaya. Squashed under a massive rock, the Silver Temple is packed with ancient intricate detail, provides a feast for the eyes and has an almost palpable spirituality about the whole experience. 


location

Your tour of Sri Lanka kicks off in Colombo and after a day here, you head into the wilds to visit Udawalawe National Park. You then head to Ella, before travelling to Kandy, Sri Lanka’s second city. We then spend a couple of nights in Dambulla before spending our final night in Negombo, from where you will be transferred back to Colombo airport.
