Adventure Holidays in Sri Lanka

With sandy, palm-fringed beaches, jewelled cultural treasures and magical chance encounters with elephants all on offer, a Sri Lanka tour has a magic all of its own. On your trip to Sri Lanka, visit the ancient rock fortress at Sigiriya, rising high above the rainforest canopy; see elephants in their natural environment tugging at the grass and grazing on palm fronds; and watch out for darting leopards too. Discover rare species and the gemstones that first drew travellers here; explore paddy fields by bike; lose yourself in maze-like rows of highland tea plantations; and let juddering tuk tucks zip you through the underbrush to hidden expanses of beach. Holidays in Sri Lanka provide a fantastic mix of culture, history, people, food, wildlife and beaches, and Exodus – with the help of our expert local guides – promises to get you closer to the action than anyone else.

 

Or why not try a Tailormade Adventure?

We can tailor almost any holiday to suit you, perfect if you’d like to change the dates, itinerary, or simply want a private adventure with a group of friends, family or fellow enthusiasts. All Tailormade Adventures still get a local guide where appropriate and all the other Exodus benefits. So if you’d like to celebrate your birthday at the top of a mountain, or visit a particular beach, let us know your dates, and we’ll do the rest.
