Experience The Best of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka offers tropical palm-fringed beaches, ancient sights, unique wildlife and heartwarming, friendly locals. This trip will take you through the highlights of the Isle of Ceylon, starting in the cultural triangle before winding its way South through rolling tea plantations and historic towns, to end the trip with a tranquil beach-side stay.

Ready to be inspired?

Sri Lanka guarantees a range of great experiences. Chat with monks in the North, take a toy train through the tea country, or surf a reef break in the South. Your private chauffeur guide will be with you up until the beach to make sure you experience the best of Sri Lanka.

"I found myself referring to each experience as one of the best I've ever had ... everyone deserves to be blessed by the magic of Sri Lanka".

Weather watch: December through to April is peak season, but the shoulder months of May and November can be absolute winners. There’s a chance of showers, but worth it for fewer crowds and lower prices.
Whether you're a beginner or big wave surfer, we'll find you the perfect break.
