Description of Sri Lanka family adventure holiday
This two week tailor made adventure in Sri Lanka is for families who like to keep active on holiday as well as exploring and relaxing away from typical tourist trails.
From jeep safaris in Wilpattu National Park to cycle tours around the ancient city of Anuradhapura this is one family adventure holiday that you’ll never forget with a personalised blend of cultural enlightenment and exciting activities adding to the thrill of real life on the tear drop isle.
Not only will you be invited to try white water rafting on the Kelaniya River and train travel through traditional tea estates, but you’ll also get the chance to have your very own English-speaking guide and chauffer to show you Sri Lanka’s secret spots and regional recommendations.
Exploring in the company of a local guide is a real privilege and also gives you every opportunity to find out more about what you’re experiencing and where you’re visiting as you make your way from one characterful B&B guesthouse and village homestay to the next.
There's much more to just beaches in Sri Lanka and this tailor made tour lets your family find out more as they venture between temples, jungles and coastline on an incredibly immersive two week adventure.

Reviewed on 06 Aug 2019 by Tina AntillThe holiday was excellent. The country is very beautiful and small enough to see a lot in 2 weeks. People are very friendly and having English spoken and on signage everywhere helps. We enjoyed the balance of wildlife, culture, walking and R&R. Read full review

Reviewed on 05 Oct 2018 by Mikkel BatesThere were so many memorable experiences on our holiday...but the stand-out one has to be seeing hundreds of elephants, including many babies, at Kaudulla, because we hadn't planned it, but our driver recommended it and the guide knew exactly where the elephants were that day.

Visits to nature reserves and national parks are popular among holidaymakers to Sri Lanka.

One important area for sustainable tourism that we wish to highlight is ‘tea and spices’. Tea and spices are often purchased by tourists in Sri Lanka and taken home as a gift for friends or family. In our tours around Sri Lanka we encourage our clients to visit fairly-traded and organic tea and spices plantations. We also inform and advice our clients where they can buy products that have been fairly-traded.
You have to try a king coconut drink! It is the best refreshment while travelling in and about Sri Lanka. It is always cool, and refreshing. It is full of minerals. Most importantly, this small purchase will contribute to the small local businesses. We encourage our clients to eat at least one meal per day in local restaurants. This is beneficial for both local businesses and for tourists. Local businesses will gain the economic benefits through income and tourist will get unforgettable experience by interacting with local people.
