We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Sri Lanka holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

The former Ceylon, Sri Lanka is the Emerald Isle of the Indian Ocean, with rolling hills, diverse wildlife and a mixture of religions and cultures. Pick your morning cup of tea in Kandy, visit elephants drinking in the local watering hole and spot leopards in the national parks. The city of Colombo is becoming an ideal place to pick up a bargain in the local markets. Touring the country is the perfect way to experience every element before a short hop over to the geographical wonder - the Maldives. The best view is from the air and well worth a sea plane trip or hotel stay to see these individual islands from the air. Spot pods of dolphins and some of the best snorkelling and dive sites in the world.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Culture and city spots
  • Ideal for soft adventure and total relaxation
  • Country highlights and beach escapes

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka holidays are infused with the pleasant scent of tea plantations and rich exotic spices. We suggest a night in vibrant Colombo and head to the waterfront markets to rab a spot of dinner for some of the finest street food in the city. The following day you’ll head out for a short but comprehensive guided private tour, ideal for combining with a relaxing beach stay. Take in an elephant orphanage on route to the fascinating and historic city of Kandy, then wind into Nuwara Eliya for Sri Lanka's beautiful tea plantations - learn about the tea making process and enjoy the stunning scenery. Wind your way down from the hill country to the golden beaches of Kalutara for a nights relaxation before your short one hour flight to the Maldives.
