YOUR SIGNATURE JOURNEY IN SRI LANKA
The island nation of Sri Lanka might be small, but brims with lush landscapes, ancient treasures and colonial history! Beyond its Indian Ocean-lapped shores you’ll find a country of startling beauty and genuine warmth.
Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms date back thousands of years, gloriously preserved at UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Kandu, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, the area between which is known as the Cultural Triangle.
During the colonial era, cinnamon and spices brought traders to Ceylon from around the world – first the Portuguese, followed by the Dutch, who fortified the ports of Colombo and Galle, before the British arrived for the tea. This history has lent Sri Lanka a diverse culture, reflected in the country’s cuisine and architecture.
It is an island with swathes of wilderness and some beautiful national parks such as Yala or Gal Oya where you can find a rich wildlife but most of all, over 400 different types of birds to spot! You can also enjoy Sri Lanka’s pristine beaches where whales and dolphins populate the island’s warm coastal waters, and five of the world’s seven turtle species come to nest in Sri Lankan sand.
A luxury tailor-made holiday in Sri Lanka will transport you to another world as you pick tea leaves with the women of Nuwara Eliya, walk the old fortress walls of Galle and its colonial charm, and discover the cultural wonders of an unknown North!
