Picture-perfect coastlines, untamed rainforests, verdant peaks, and ancient treasures, 'The Pearl of the Indian Ocean' is truly intoxicating!
A meeting point of religions, cultures, and traditions, Sri Lanka is an undeniably spiritual nation, home to a wealth of religious landmarks and historic sights, and some of the most delicious gastronomy on earth, whilst its natural landscapes and coastal waters are some of the most beautiful and biodiverse in all of Asia, and feature all manner of wildlife including, leopards, elephants, dolphins, and orcas.
This tour eliminates guesswork and immerses you in the must-sees, must-tastes and must-meets of this beautiful country. In other words, the best stuff. Like summiting Lion Rock in Sigiriya, cycling through sprawling ancient city ruins in Anuradhapura and touring massive granite Buddha carvings in Polonnaruwa. But the best doesn’t just mean the biggest. The best is also having lunch with a Tamil tea worker in their home, relaxing with a cold beer and your feet in the sand in Mirissa and hiking between plantations and villages in Haputale. In fact, we think the best is doing all that and more in one 15-day tour.
Sri Lanka is a great year-round destination, though for most of the country, the best weather conditions are between December and mid-April.
We recommend a minimum of 10 days.
