Sri Lanka Walking Holidays

This focussed walking holiday is designed to showcase the urban areas, nature and colonial history of Sri Lanka. The modern Sri Lanka can be seen in Colombo. Bustling markets, dense suburbs, tucked away parks and temples, tall buildings – all mixed together. We then contrast this by heading into countryside, with farms and small villages. Get a glimpse of village life and enjoy Sri Lanka’s nature and wildlife. Lastly, we head to Galle to see the Colonial impact in Sri Lanka. A mix of cultures co-existing and influencing each other. A lot of tourists but we shall try and show you the local life away from the normal touristy areas.Read more >
