Overview

Book
Setting out to explore Sri Lanka's great variety, on this family adventure holiday to Sri Lanka we see many of its most colourful attractions - towering waterfalls, spice gardens, Indian Ocean beaches, historic towns and some of the Buddhist world's most remarkable temples. After a village walk and a visit to the amazing rock fortress at Sigiriya, we travel to the hill-capital' of Kandy, where we have the chance to make our own souvenir batik. We then have a session of fun whitewater rafting on the Kelani River, before heading up to Newara Eliya, to visit a tea plantation and hike to the dramatic viewpoint at World's End. We also visit the orphaned baby elephants at the Elephant Transit home. Jeep safaris at Udawalawe and Yala take us close to wild elephants and maybe even an elusive leopard, before we round off this great holiday with 2 days at the coast for surf, sand and optional watersports.

We were completely satisfied with our holiday - thank you! We wanted something with an adventurous spirit and with some physical activity. Also we wanted an all inclusive package. We have travelled with other companies and disliked the random way that some food is included and some not. It was very relaxing to know we were full board throughout.

This was one of the best trips our family has ever done; the itinerary was full and varied with so many different things to see and do. We most enjoyed the beauty and diversity of the country, seeing the animals - leopards, elephants, crocs and being immersed in the country; this was very special. Our leader was a great trip leader. He was so knowledgeable and thoughtful. He showed us his beautiful country and shared so much with us - he kept us very well informed and I don't think there was a question he didn't know the answer to.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sri Lanka tour and felt it provided a great mix of activities ( trekking, whitewater rafting, swimming, etc), culture (visiting ancient buddhist temples and through our excellent guide about the history of the island) and to cap it all a great fun group dynamic. Also the little personal touches, like playing a game of cricket with some locals, really made for a memorable experience .

Thoroughly enjoyable experience. The range of places we visited, mix of activity and wildlife, culture and company made for a really lovely holiday. We would definitely consider an adventure holiday in the future.
