Designed with the first time visitor in mind, our 14-day Classic Sri Lanka tour explores the island’s highlights without rushing through. It also aims to avoid the crowds. The trip starts by heading from Colombo to Sigiriya, right in the heart of the ‘Cultural Triangle’. This area is famed for the ancient Buddhist civilisations that, over time, ruled Sri Lanka. Many of them, including Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polonnaruwa are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From there the trip continues south to hillier Kandy; surrounded by dense greenery, Kandy is home to The Temple of the Tooth and has become known for its exquisite gem stones. The journey continues south by train into the verdant tea-growing region before arriving in Yala National Park on the south coast. It’s argued that Yala is home to the highest density of leopard in the world. The trip ends on the coast near to beautiful colonial Galle, before flying back from the capital Colombo. This is a fantastic all-rounder trip.
