Sri Lanka’s Speciality

A visiting family made welcome at a Buddhist monastery, Sri Lanka

Our Hidden Gems of Sri Lanka holiday is a 17-day taster itinerary for an out of the ordinary family experience!

Off the beaten track is a good way to start your exploration of the lesser known parts of Sri Lanka before visiting the island’s famous Cultural Triangle with a climb up Sigiriya rock fortress. Then onto the Knuckles Mountain Range for various activities including hiking, trekking, wild swimming and overnight camping. Continuing south to Kandy and Ella in the spectacular Hill Country, then dropping down to the hot and dry southern plain for jeep safaris in Udawalawe NP. 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 cabanas and lodges, a homestay guesthouse, a tea estate bungalow, a contemporary beach retreat, and a magnificent colonial-era 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.

Take a look below at the outline itinerary as an inspiration for creating your own out of the ordinary family holiday.
