Sri Lanka holidays
Sri Lanka is a teardrop-shaped Indian Ocean island of dense forests, glittering temples, and golden beaches. Oh, and don’t forget the charming hillside tea plantations that produce some of the globe’s finest cuppas.
Explore this welcoming country on our Sri Lanka tours and you’ll see elements of its ancient history, as well as its British and European colonial past. Legendary temples, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites, tell stories which took place thousands of years ago, linking back to the country’s two significant ethnic groups – the Sinhalese and Tamils. Both groups tell fascinating and contrasting versions of Sri Lanka’s past, including the origins of the many temples and Buddhist shrines.
Visit Sri Lanka's national parks and reserves and you might spot leopards, sloth bears, sambar deer, wild buffalo and an abundance of beautiful birds - it truly is paradise for nature enthusiasts and wildlife lovers.
Whether it's walking on pristine white-sand beaches, soaking up mountain views, discovering the scenic Royal Botanical Gardens, or admiring a thousand-year-old temple, you are bound to end your Sri Lanka holiday feeling inspired.
