Sri Lanka is a destination that stimulates all the senses – tropical beaches, cooler mountainous terrain punctuated with waterfalls, incredibly rich wildlife, tea plantations, fabulous food and diverse culture featuring time old ancient sites. Start your adventures in the city of Colombo, with its old-world colonial charm, temples, old churches and markets.
Sit on the outdoor terrace at the aging Galle Face Hotel and sip on a cold gin and tonic watching the sunset over the Laccadive Sea. The Hill Country is the most magical part of the entire country, the train journey from Colombo up into the winding hills is one of the best in the world. If you desire to take a side trip and get your fix of nature and wildlife, national parks such as Yala or Udawalawe abound, with safaris offering a fabulous adventure for all. Sri Lanka has spectacular ruins in the north such as Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Dumbulla, the history and beauty are jaw-dropping beautiful. As you wind your way south to white beaches and palm trees, enjoy the surf, kick back and unwind. The fortified city of Galle, now UNESCO protected, is one of the country’s most well-loved sites.
Sri Lanka simply has it all, few places in the world offer such diversity – our Sri Lanka custom-made tours can be as busy or as relaxed as you wish. The Sri Lankans are incredibly warm, overwhelming friendly, eager to chat about life, your family, your plans, and impressions of Sri Lanka – they’re proud ambassadors, and for good reason.
