Stunning scenery, exotic wildlife, a rich and fascinating culture - Sri Lanka has something to delight any traveller. And with them all packed into one small island, there's something to marvel at and enjoy every day, as we explore the wonders of its ancient cities, the lush tea estates surrounding Kandy and delight in the warm welcome from handloom workers at Selyn.
From its modern capital, Colombo, to the glories of its ancient past, this tour provides the perfect introduction to all that Sri Lanka has to offer. We see elephants, peacocks and monkeys whilst still having time to relax on one of Sri Lanka's many stunning palm fringed beaches.
Our partners, Adventure Lanka are a locally owned company run by people with a passion for their country, its people and its environment. With a strong belief that all guests have an authentic yet responsible and sustainable experience of Sri Lanka, the guides are keen to share their knowledge and even teach you a few phrases in Sinhala to enable you to interact with the locals you meet.
