Great Journeys. Fascinating Places.
Sri Lanka is a country full of culture, wildlife, scenery and hospitality. A country full of smiles and warm hearts. The people of Sri Lanka take pride in their country and offer a huge variety of differing sights. Sri Lanka has so much to offer everyone, whether you want to relax or take time out to visit cultural sights and experiences. We personally recommend a bit of everything which is why a tour is a fantastic way to see as much as possible with the help of a private tour guide.
Our tours will be tailor made to your requirements., We will help you decide what the best places are to see to give you some guidance based on your likes and dislikes and will build in whatever time you can afford to take from your everyday schedule to rest and relax in between.
We always recommend an itinerary before travelling to Sri Lanka, 10 days is a good minimum time to stay and affords time to relax and unwind and then start your tour. Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and then set off on the tour. Experiences that are highly recommended on your trip are to climb Sigiriya rock, a lot of steps but the view is worth it. A safari tour in Minniriya National park to experience elephants in their own habitat and roaming free, an experience like no other and
a memory that will never fade. Take to the wild in Yala and the outdoors with elite camping, a safari trip to see the leopards is on the cards. Trincomalee to whale and dolphin watch; May is a good time for Sperm whales and June, July and August for Blue whales and dolphins. Trinco has a stretch of fantastic and luxury beaches for diving and catching the sun afterwards. Drive through the countryside and rice paddies with a stay in Kandy for the temples and experience the local culture.
Colombo is the main hub with metropolitan restaurants and hip youngsters, a drastic change to the scenery of most places in Sri Lanka. Ella a spot high in the mountains amongst the tea plantations; the best way to travel here is by train where you can hang out of the carriages and see the ladies picking tea leaves from the plants on your journey. Stay in the mountains and hike up Adam’s Peak for the stunning views. This is just the start there are many things to see and do whilst on the tour. Of course, there will be time to swim and relax and stay in some of the most luxurious resorts and hotels Sri Lanka has to offer.
Note that the hikes we have recommended above may be found strenuous and require appropriate footwear but part of our service will be to establish the capability of your group.
