Sri Lanka in the Summer

Trip Highlights
Explore remote national parks
See ancient sights
Spot Leopards in the wild
White sandy beaches
When To Go
Apr - Sep
Ideal Length
Around 10 days, but if you are adding extra destinations up to two weeks.

All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t

You’ll begin your trip in the wilds of Wilpattu on the north-west coast. Here, you’ll (fingers crossed) enjoy some leopard sightings before driving into the “cultural triangle” in the North, where ancient sites and temples, and the mind-blowing rock fortress of Sigiriya awaits. Finish your trip by enjoying a cocktail beside the calm seas of the east coast and look out for whales. Perfect.

“My favourite area is the Tea Country, however, the amazing beaches, historic forts and temples, abundant wildlife and bustling towns and cities are all a pleasure to visit and revisit."

Eleanor Milner, The Sri Lanka Collection

Top Tip: You will have a private guide with you throughout the cultural triangle, so take advantage of their local knowledge.
Romantic meals for two? There's plenty of opportunity here.
Cinnamon Lodge, Cultural Triangle
Weather Watch: July and August are the most popular and expensive months to travel, so if you can, choose either side of these instead for good value.
