Having worked in tourism for a long time we know there are plenty of companies out there that run the same trips with such regularity that they have lost their true connection with the destination. Then there are the other companies that just grab an established tour company brochure and replicate what already exists. That's not us. We carefully craft every tour we offer, making sure that we are not compromising on our goal of getting you out into a country to truly experience everything that makes it tick - the good the bad and the smelly.
Featured trips & expertise
Perfect for active travelers and nature-lovers, this 10-day tour covers everything from sunny coastlines to national parks to tea plantations. Walk, swim, and drive your way through rainforests, across sandy beaches, and - if you're lucky - past some of the country's most exotic wildlife.
An intact flora and fauna collection is one of Sri Lanka’s greatest assets and a couple of park visits are a great way to break up your tour. Horton Plains, Yala, and Udawalawe National Parks are often the highlights, but each park has its own unique way to avoid the crowds and have an amazing experience.
If you're looking to spend some time relaxing on the beach in Sri Lanka, there are many great beaches to choose from. Which one you end up at will probably depend on the time of year you travel and on the overall route of your tour.
Sri Lanka is a compact country so domestic flights are limited. Newer highways are reducing travel times for those who take the bus. However, trains are the more comfortable way to get around. The best way to see Sri Lanks is on a bike and there is an excellent network of roads to get you around to every corner of the country.
