Fascinating culture, wildlife and golden beaches - welcome to Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is known as the jewel of the Indian Ocean, a teardrop shaped island at the foot of the Indian subcontinent. Endless beaches, stunning landscapes, timeless ruins, welcoming people, rolling surf, sandy beaches, lush green tea estates and flavourful food make Sri Lanka irresistible. Explore and uncover a fascinating, secluded jewel formerly known as Ceylon. Learn about its history and culture by visiting the richly carved Sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy. Climb to the top of the looming rock fortress of Sigiriya and visit the monumental ruins of Polonnaruwa. Relax and sample the country’s colonial history with a visit to a tea plantation home followed by a few nights at a lovely beach hotel where you can enjoy the local cuisine. Across the island, that thing that goes bump in the night might be an elephant heading to a favourite waterhole. We have a selection of tours over the next four pages that will introduce you to the highlights of Sri Lanka, from a short 7 night tour of the country’s highlights to a 15 day ultimate tour, all can be combined with a beach stay, call us for details.
