Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Sri Lanka adventure holiday

The tropical island of Sri Lanka is compact enough to allow us to put together all the major highlights in just 15 days and still allow plenty of time for relaxation and for you to do your own exploring. The itinerary, and out travel style, provides a culturally relevant opportunity to see some amazing sights and to mix with some of the friendliest people we know in the whole of Asia. . We learn about the country's culture and history in the magnificent ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa and in the Tooth Temple situated in the heart of Kandy with its scenic lakeside setting. We visit historically important sites, observe local economic ventures, and see traditional crafts such as batik making. Our knowledgeable leaders will assist you to discover and appreciate cultural differences, to tread lightly and responsibly.

We visit the UNESCO World Heritage ancient city of Anuradhapura, starting our guided bicycle tour at the spiritually important sacred old Bo Tree, a spiritual reminder of the beginnings of Buddhism in Sri Lanka and the inspiration for Anuradhapura's great buildings. The Bo tree was grown from a cutting of the original tree in Bodhgaya under which Buddha gained enlightenment.

In Kandy we visit the octagonal Dalada Maligawa (Temple of the Tooth) and may experience the drumming and chanting rituals of the white-clad pilgrims who come to worship at Sri Lanka's most important Buddhist site. In the highlands of Bandawarela we have a lesson on Sri Lankan food and a cooking demonstration. This is yet another opportunity to "hang out" with the local people, learning about their culture, and having a laugh together.

Reviewed on 21 Aug 2005 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The variety, colours, smells, religions, history, companionship of the group, the care taken by the tour guide (Bruno) and his friends, food, birds and wildlife, Kandy Perahera Festival, elephants, children, public transport, roller-coaster driving and overtaking, cycling, trekking, Buddhist temples, the variety of fruit, flowers, smiling. The 7 hour train ride from Kandy to Haputale was amazing. Jam packed and lively. People hanging out of the doors and windows with wonderful scenery. Everyone smiling and such good babies. Loads of pictures to be taken and shown to the children . Email addresses swapped to pass them on. Onion and jaggery sandwiches and sweet tea from the 'buffet'.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Travel as light as possible. Shorts, especially for women really don't work, you would feel very out of place. Skirts or 3/4 trousers and short sleeved T shirts were the most worn. A digital camera is better so that you can show the children the picture you have just taken. There is some serious walking, bring the right clothes and footwear. Try not to bring large notes, 1000 Rupees (worth about GB £6), it is embarrassing or impossible to change them. Bring 100 Rupee notes and coins. Drink more water (bottled) than you think you need. Adjust your expectations very quickly and smile. Everything is slow and chaotic and takes 4 people! Take pictures with you of your home, town, work and family - everyone is very interested and it makes conversation easier, especially when staying in people's homes.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I think it did this more so than if I had stayed in one hotel, possibly owned by an outsider. There were not enough of us, tourists/foreigners in Sri Lanka to make enough difference. We bought from the markets and traders and tipped the staff rather than the management but we did not need enough and it was so evident that all the traders needed our business for crafts, snacks, water, fruit etc. Buying things in larger shops it was difficult to imagine where the money was going. I saw some of the accommodation that the Rest House staff lived in. It was awful, I don't know that I have helped them at all really and they would say they are the lucky ones to have a job.
