Sri Lanka Holidays

Our holidays to Sri Lanka take you to a land that has inspired and seduced travellers with its verdant beauty, abundant wildlife and rich cultural heritage for centuries.

For a relatively small island, Sri Lanka packs an impressive punch; few places of comparable size can boast such a stunning array of natural and man-made wonders.

The magnificent remains of Sri Lanka’s ancient Sinhalese civilization can be evidenced in a number of spectacular sites including the World Heritage Site of Anauradhapura, the giant Buddha statues at Polonnaruwa, the cave temples of Dambulla and the former citadel of Sigiriya - arguably Sri Lanka’s most remarkable sight perched atop a towering rock outcrop. The most sacred of all Sri Lanka’s cultural relics though can be found in Kandy, where the remains of one of Buddha’s teeth is kept at the Temple of the Tooth. Each year, a replica of the tooth is paraded at the Esala Perahera festival – Sri Lanka’s most extravagant celebration.

Following the restoration of peace in the north of the country, the many cultural and istoric treasures of northern Sri Lanka are also accessible to tourists. Trincomalee, Jaffna Fort and the temples at Nainativu Island can all be visited on our Definitive Cultural Tour of Sri Lanka cultural tour.

Alongside its many cultural highlights, Sri Lanka has a rich biodiversity and sumptuous landscapes. Trails through tea plantations, lowland jungle, cloud forest and mountain moorland all provide great walking or trekking opportunities. Whilst game drives at Wilpattu or Yala National Park enable close up viewing of elephants, crocodile, wild buffalo and numerous exotic birds. There’s even a chance of spotting leopards! Our Gentle Walking Sri Lanka holiday is a great way to discover the cultural and historical sights of the ‘teardrop island’ as well as the wonderful wildlife. If you’d like to explore a little further, then our Hill Country Heights trek allows you to experience more diverse landscapes as well as to make the ascent of Adams Peak to see the Buddha’s footprint and enjoy a stunning sunrise.

Sri Lanka’s temperate climate, outstanding coastline and good accommodation make it the ideal family destination. White water rafting, cycling, walking, whale watching and wildlife activities make for action-packed holiday fun, or you can simply relax on one of Sri Lanka’s idyllic palm-fringed beaches enjoying a little touch of paradise on the Isle of Serendipity. In fact, we could create your dream trip on a Tailor Made holiday to Sri Lanka.
