Sri Lanka Tours & Holidays

The lovely teardrop-shaped Indian Ocean island of Sri Lanka is a land of dense forests, glittering temples, golden beaches and hillside plantations producing some of the world’s finest teas. Formerly known as Ceylon, there are still reminders here of the country’s British colonial past, as well as its more ancient history. Join an escorted tour to Sri Lanka to discover the ‘Land of Serendipity’ for yourself, visiting the city of Kandy, home to the sacred Buddhist Temple of the Tooth, Yala National Park, where wild elephants and leopards roam, the UNESCO-listed coastal city of Galle, with its imposing Dutch-built fortress, the buzzing capital, Colombo and the charming English-style hill station of Nuwara Eliya, recalling the days of the British Raj.

Legendary temples, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage listed, fill this enchanted country and each unfolds within its walls the ancient story that took place here thousands of years ago, which can be explained by the country’s two significant ethnic groups: the Sinhalese and Tamils. Both groups have fascinating and completely different versions of Sri Lanka’s past including the origins of the multiple temples and Buddhist shrines. Sri Lanka adventure tours often expose these great sites and the history in the words of both the Sinhalese and Tamils, such as the serene Golden Temple at Dambulla and the sacred Temple of the Tooth.
