Sri Lanka is famous for its exquisite beaches and has been described as the finest island of its size in the world. Behind the dazzling coastline there is a lush interior with thick jungles, vast palm and paddy plantations and – up in the hill country – tea estates, montane forests, high waterfalls, rushing rivers and wonderful old Raj hill stations. In addition, the country has a long and interesting history, ancient Buddhist temples, spice gardens and abundant wildlife.
From the lowlands to the hill country, Exodus walking holidays in Sri Lanka cover all that the island has to offer: the ancient sites of Dambulla and Sigiriya, the Knuckles Mountain Range, tea plantations around Horton Plains, Adam’s Peak and time on the coast too. Most of our walking in Sri Lanka is completely off the beaten track and you are unlikely to meet many other foreigners.

Walking and exploring the delights of this diverse island
A fantastic week in Tuscany, the family who ran the Agriturismo were delightful and could not be more friendly, considerate and helpful. The accommodation is fairly basic,but clean and comfortable (as expected). We were worried prior to the trip about the weather, but it turned out to be sunny most of the week! The itinery was just amazing, varied and with some quite incredible walks; especially the last day hiking up Monte Sumbra – unforgetable! The walking group was a great cross section of people, and many laughs were had over the week…..all I can say is it is a ‘must do’ trip!
Walks well paced and enjoyable. Guide ensured excellent teamwork. However, due to unseasonal heavy rains the accommodation was unsatisfactory. Despite several requests the owner of the farmhouse refused to turn on any heating. This not only made our nights uncomfortably cold, but gave no opportunity for our wet clothing, bath towels, etc., to dry. In addition we were unable to sit outside and there was no communal area inside to gather. The swimming pool was not ready for our use. I contacted Candice who though sympathetic, was unable to resolve the situation.
We hiked with a fabulous, congenial and like-minded group. We all got on so well. Our comradery made the trip fun and stimulating. The Villa Casalta is an odd place. Exodus needs to do a site visit or just scrap this villa and look elsewhere.
