Most itineraries through Sri Lanka go in a clockwise direction, however our Colonial Sri Lanka itinerary travels in the opposite direction to make the most of beautiful Galle, and the idyllic beaches nearby, at the beginning of your trip. This journey really focusses on Sri Lanka’s colonial past, rather than on Sri Lanka’s ancient civilisations. It explores how merchants and traders that have shaped Galle, Sri Lanka’s best preserved fort and colonial landscape. It heads to Yala National Park, once a hunting ground for the British Elite but now home to a high density of leopard. The trip also takes in the spectacular tea growing region, where you’ll stay in an orginal tea planter’s bungalow. One of the main highlights is catching the train from the tea plantations all the way up to Kandy. The trip ends in Colombo, the capital city that is home to both British and Dutch colonial architecture. This is a fascinating trip that takes in some of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful countryside and towns.
