Overview

Book
Leave moderation at home and indulge on this gourmet adventure in Sri Lanka. Lie back on the coast, cool down in the highlands and weave through the streets of the buzzing capital. Taste melt-in-the mouth desserts, cook seafood straight out of the hands of a fisherman, uncover fiery curries and spend time with welcoming locals keen to share the mysteries of Sri Lankan cuisine. There’s also time to explore the rich culture of Sri Lanka: elaborate temples, ancient fortresses and wildlife-filled countryside. This is truly an adventure for the senses.

Highlights

    • Witness the amazing Sri Lankan seafood on offer at the Negombo seafood market
    • Spend time with welcoming locals keen to share the mysteries of Sri Lankan cuisine – learn Tamil, Sinhalese, and Bergher cooking in their homes
    • Soak up the scenery while sipping a glass of the local arak – Sri Lanka’s signature local liquor
    • Spoil your tastebuds with flavour-filled curries and sweet desserts, and treat your eyes to banquets of rainbow spices, vibrant vegetables and colourful sambol

I was concerned that 15 days may have been a little too long but it was such a wonderful experience, i didn't want it to end.

An amazing tour. Bruno's level of knowledge is second to none. His pride for his country, dedication to his work and enthusiasm towards his clients are qualities few tour guides possess.

I took my two daughters (aged 25 and 27) on their first adventure holiday - Real Food Adventure Sri Lanka. It went way beyond our expectations and we had a marvellous time. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country - the scenery, the food, the people. We were welcomed into so many different types of homes during the 10 days which gave us such an insight into their customs and way of life. We tried to come up with our favourite place/experience but it was impossible as every one was so memorable. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Thank you Intrepid for showing me the real Sri Lanka and starting a life-long love affair for this beautiful country! The only additional thing I recommend that wasn't advised is to bring a pack of pens for the children - they love them! I hope to visit again very soon!

A very well organised tour. Great inclusions, and the opportunity to share meals with local people in their homes. I also really enjoyed the company of our like-minded fellow travellers.

This was my first intrepid trip and I wouldn't hesitate to book another one. I enjoyed the complete experience - everything from having an excellent guide, cooking in family homes, and the variety of other experiences included. I was impressed at the whole intrepid experience. In particular the small group size and meeting the fellow travellers while experiencing so many aspects of Sri Lanka

RFASL covers a broad range of Sri Lankan cuisine and culture across Sri Lanka. You get to eat home cooked meals and see where the ingredients come from. Be prepared to gain a few pounds!

The Hotels on this intrepid tour were quiet surprising as the tour was such a great price we could not believe such amazing accommodation was also include, we had a swimming pool at all but two of the hotels and all rooms had air conditioning and great beds
