Overview

Book
The remnants of a spiritual past await your discovery in Sri Lanka, from the ancient cliff-built complex of Lion Rock in Sigiriya to the ruins of the Sinhalese capital in Anuradhapura. Explore wonders of nature and humanity – often both at once – on this 8-day adventure through the cities, jungles and caves of Sri Lanka. Beginning in Negombo, travel through verdant countryside, past tea plantations, into the wildlife-filled Minneriya National Park and to the thriving capital of Colombo. An immersive and cultural Sri Lankan escapade awaits – the only thing left to choose is when to go.

Highlights

    • Travel through highlands so green they almost glow in Nuwara Eliya, and sample some of the acclaimed tea varieties that grow on the hillsides with your small group.
    • Learn of the varied cuisine and local customs of different regions around Sri Lanka, highlighted by a rhythmic cultural dance performance in Kandy.
    • See one of the world’s most revered relics at the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, home to an earthly remain of the Lord Buddha, and discover the cave temple of Dambulla.
    • Head on safari – Sri Lanka style! Look for elephants and leopards while you cruise the beautiful Minneriya National Park in a jeep with expert local guides at twilight.
    • Watch candy-coloured tuk-tuks zip down the street in Colombo and while you’re checking out all the sights, have time to shop locally and ethically at small cottage industries.

Sensational Sri Lanka is a very comfortable tour and an excellent way to see parts of the country that have previously not been accessible to tourists. We travelled to the very highest point of Sri Lanka and were greeted everywhere with smiles and friendly locals. If you travel for food experiences, this is also the trip for you. We dined on the streets, in cafes and restaurants and in the homes of people we met along the way.

Loved this trip! I'm very active so if I could change something it would be adding in a hike and more cycling.

A fantasic tour, transport and guide who all revealed a unique insight into life in Sri Lanka, combined with a great group of people to share the trip with. Sri Lanka really ticks all the boxes - beaches, animals, culture, history, religion and the kind laid back Sri Lankans made the trip outstanding. Thank you to all involved in the trip for such a memorable experience.

Even if you are looking at travelling to an "easy" country, I guarantee you won't see as much (you just can't!), experience the destination and culture so authentically or meet such cool and like-minded people as you will with them !
