FAQs on Sri Lanka Tours

Is Sri Lanka good for tourists?

Sri Lanka is an extraordinary country full of beautiful beaches, wildlife and cultural gems. The people are friendly and love to welcome tourists who want to learn more about their way of life. You’ll find lots of places to shop for souvenirs on Sri Lanka tours and most things are affordable, although some of the major attractions can be quite expensive. The country is largely safe but tourists do need to be aware of the local laws and traditions before they embark on a Sri Lanka tour, which you can find on the government website.

How many days is enough to visit Sri Lanka?

While there are many significant and natural sights to discover during Sri Lanka trips, it’s a relatively small island country. 8 days is ample time if you want to explore the highlights but if you prefer to delve a little deeper into the culture, history and wildlife then 15 days is preferable for tours in Sri Lanka.

Is 10 days enough to visit Sri Lanka?

On 10-day trips to Sri Lanka, you’ll have plenty of time to see many of the main sights as well as enjoying a range of exciting experiences along the way, giving you a greater insight into the country. Our 10-day Wild Tour Sri Lanka, for example, takes you on an unforgettable journey with four game drives in Yala and Udawalawe national parks, a trip to Sinharaja Rainforest and Dickwella Beach and a private whale-watching excursion.

What is the best month to visit Sri Lanka?

Sri Lanka is a year-round destination for wildlife viewing but if you’re wanting to experience certain festivals, hit the beach, or avoid the crowds, then you’ll want to consider the best season for booking trips to Sri Lanka.

Wildlife lovers should travel between November and April when all the major parks are open, and the animals begin to gather around the water holes. But September is best for seeing the elephants and their calves at Minneriya National Park.

Despite the Yala monsoon, which arrives in May, this is a good time to enjoy some of the country’s most prestigious festivals. You’ll also avoid the throngs of tourists during these months. But if you prefer the warmer, drier weather and don’t mind the crowds, then opt for Sri Lanka tours in January.

Which part of Sri Lanka is the best?

Sri Lanka is a diverse country with a scenic coastline, sprawling national parks, ancient cities and picturesque countryside dotted with traditional hillside towns. Cycling in Sri Lanka is a great way to cover more distance so you can experience many of the highlights in one trip. From the Dambulla Cave Temple and the rock fortress at Sigiriya to the UNESCO-listed city of Kandy, Sri Lanka cycling tours steer you among the country’s best bits.

Yala National Park is a must-visit destination during a trip to Sri Lanka and is home to the elusive leopard as well as elephants, deer, sloths, wild boars and various species of birds.

Is Sri Lanka good for cycling?

Owing to its dramatic and diverse landscapes, one of the best ways to see the country is on Sri Lanka cycling tours as they give you the opportunity to explore further and immerse yourself in the local culture. Because cycling in Sri Lanka is a common way to get around, many of the roads you ride along are tarmacked. When you cycle the back roads, you’ll enjoy mostly quiet trails with sublime views.

What wildlife can you see in Sri Lanka?
