Why we love Sri Lanka
From the rolling tea plantations just outside Kandy to the white-sand, Indian Ocean-flanked beaches Trincomalee – a trip through Sri Lanka will leave the most hardened of travellers all gooey on the inside. This place is a wonderland of awesome.
The people will move you with their kindness, the sights will move you with their magnificence, the food will move you with its deliciousness, and the tuk tuks will move you with their wheels.
The Cultural Triangle – which includes Dambulla, Sigiriya and Anuradhapura – has more jaw-dropping ancient sites than you’re likely to have seen before. Cave temples, palaces, dagobas, sculptures, rock citadels, cities, towns, villages, lakes, rivers, mountains, highlands – you name it, Sri Lanka’s got it. And it all comes with a smile. And some delicious food. Winner.

Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number.
