For Explorers and Thrill Seekers

Adrenaline-pumping, white-water rafting over cascading rapids, Kitulgala, Sri Lanka

Our Action & Adventure Sri Lanka itinerary is a 18-day taster holiday for explorers and thrill seekers!

Beginning with a Robinson Crusoe experience in an undiscovered part of the island, the trail continues into the Cultural Triangle with a hot air balloon flight around Sigiriya rock fortress or a climb to the top, before travelling south into the Knuckles Mountain Range for various activities including hiking, trekking and overnight camping. Continuing south into the Hill Country to go white-water rafting and to ascend Adam’s Peak for the spectacular dawn, then dropping down to the hot and dry southern plain for a jungle camp and jeep safaris in Yala National Park. Finishing on the south coast, with the opportunity to spot blue whales and much more on an early morning boat safari, or may be find time just to relax!

The accommodation includes traditionally-built huts and lodges, a tea estate property, rustic glamping riverside and luxury tents, and a colonial villa.

Remember that all of our holidays to Sri Lanka and Maldives are truly tailor made with no set dates, accommodation, duration, routes or visits, so each holiday is unique and specially created to your very own interests and requirements.

“The highlights for us must be the white-water rafting [Kitulgala], which was amazing, and then our first sighting of wild elephants, which is something really quite magical and an experience we will never forget. The whole country is so very diverse and the people are warm and friendly and really did seem to care that we had a good time.”
