Explore Sri Lanka on an amazing 10-night tour
Sri Lanka is one of our favourite destinations for those who love culture, adventure, wildlife, and food. To get the most out of this amazing country, check out this fabulous 10-night summer itinerary that starts at just £3,569 per person, including flights from London, which can all be organised by your Travel Counsellor.
This trip was recently embarked upon by one of our customers, Katie (pictured above). This holiday-of-a-lifetime includes a visit to the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, one of seven UNESCO World Heritage sites in Sri Lanka. There is also a tour of the fascinating Halpewatte Tea Factory and the chance to try the iconic Swing in Ella at the Ravana Pool Club – a huge adrenaline-pumping swing that rewards your bravery with fabulous views of the mountains and jungle.
There is plenty of wildlife to marvel at on the agenda too, thanks to a jeep safari in Minneriya National Park with its elephants, leopards and deer, and a boat safari on the Senanayake Samudraya reservoir in the Gal Oya National Park, where you might spot elephants swimming from one island to another and possibly crocodiles, as well as abundant birdlife. "This unbelievable tour had us hiking up ancient rock forts, exploring the jungle and hanging out with wild elephants," explains Katie. "I’ve fallen deeply in love with Sri Lanka; the landscapes, the food, the nature, the culture but, most importantly, the people."
In terms of accommodation, you’ll enjoy half-board stays at the following characterful properties: Aliya Resort & Spa Sigiriya (2 nights), Uga Bay Pasikudah (3 nights), Gal Oya Lodge (2 nights), 98 Acres Resort Ella (2 nights) and Uga Residence Colombo (1 night), and throughout the tour you’ll benefit from comfortable air-conditioned transport in a private vehicle with an English-speaking Sri Lanka Tourist Board qualified chauffeur guide.
Your entrance fees & fares to the following places are also included:
- Sigiriya Rock Fortress
- Jeep Safari at Minneriya National Park
- Boat Safari at Gal Oya
- Bird Walk and Jungle Night Walk
- Swing Ride in Ella
When it comes to the difference of having a Travel Counsellor take care of all the details of a bucket list holiday such as this, Katie couldn’t be happier with her experience: "I always had complete trust in my Travel Counsellor. She makes the effort to get to know you meaning you always get that personal touch. She nailed this itinerary, and I haven’t had to think about any of the organising, meaning more head space for me to soak up this country."
Thank you so much Katie for sharing some of your holiday snaps with us, we love it when our customers share their experiences with us.
