Tea, temples, trains & traditions make up the island of Sri Lanka
Experience authentic cultures, historic destinations, diverse landscapes and exhilarating adventures on a luxury Sri Lanka holiday. Usually overlooked by its big brother and neighbour India, Sri Lanka is equally a cultural gem, but on a much more manageable scale.
Referred to as India's Teardrop due to its geographic location & shape, Sri Lanka is a country covered with rainforests and tea plantations, the complex cultural history of Sri Lanka sits surrounded by nature.
The east coast of Sri Lanka is lined with golden sand beaches, the north is an undiscovered cultural paradise, and the central parts of the island are covered with national parks hiding elephants, leopards, buffalo and hundreds of bird species.
Start your luxury Sri Lanka tour in the old port of Colombo, where the Portuguese, British and Dutch architectural influences have merged with Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim religious temples to create a truly multicultural capital.
Shop at the local markets brimming with fresh spices and locally picked tea leaves, wander around the important Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple or take a visit to the candy striped Jami Ul-Alfar Mosque.
Visit or stay overnight at a tea plantation and learn about the complexities of picking and processing different types of tea. Head to the southwestern city of Galle, which comprises of a dignified colonial fortress on a peninsula.
Galle offers a relaxed atmosphere and can be easily explored by foot, and if you are visiting between December and March then take a boat to glimpse whales and dolphins swimming in the nearby ocean currents.
No trip to Sri Lanka would be complete without visiting the imposing rock formation of Sigiriya. Climb the 700 stairs clinging onto the sheer vertical rock face to discover the flat peak covered with ruins of an ancient civilisation. The views of the surrounding landscape are well worth the climb.
