Set against a dramatic landscape, this jewel of the Indian Ocean will enchant you with a bounty of treasures. Make a pilgrimage to the magnificent rock fortress of Sirigiya, the sacred city of Anuradhapura and the former capital of Polonnaruwa. Marvel at the first-century BC cave paintings in Dambulla. And admire the indestructible beauty of the 17th-century Dutch fort in Galle.
Up in the cool hills, watch a performance of traditional dance and visit the Temple of the Tooth in the serene city of Kandy. Then learn the art and science of tea making while staying on a working tea plantation in the heart of the country.
On the spectacular Horton Plains, explore Sri Lanka’s highest plateau on foot in search of the resident populations of monkeys and sambars (deer). Yala National Park encompasses a diversity of jungle habitats home to elephants, leopards, sloth bears, wild pigs, jackals, marsh crocodiles and a great variety of bird-life. For a more intimate view of wildlife, get up close and personal with some friendly pachyderms as you watch the elephants eat, bathe and play at the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage.
Before leaving this gorgeous island, don’t forget to spend a day or two relaxing under the palms on some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Wherever you travel in diverse Sri Lanka, we’ll be right there with you, making sure your journey is authentic, innovative and utterly unforgettable.
