Sri Lanka

A tear-shaped island of enchanting tropical beaches, gleaming Buddhist temples, misty tea plantations and old colonial hill stations, this golden isle is a tapestry of unparalleled beauty. Sri Lanka's cultural triangle is home to the world heritage sites of Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, the rock fortress of Sigiriya and the cave monastery at Dambulla. The beautiful lake-side town of Kandy is the gateway to the tea plantations and former British hill station of Nuwara Eliya and with Uda Walawe and Yala National Parks, southern Sri Lanka offers excellent wildlife viewing, a golden coastline and the 16th century port of Galle. It is now also possible to travel north, past Wilpattu National Park to Jaffna and, with the excellent beaches of the east coast, every corner of this beautiful island can be explored. We have over 25 years’ experience planning tailor-made holidays and tours to Sri Lanka.
