Ready to discover an island blessed with incredible natural beauty, a rich culture dating back millennia and a wealth of wildlife? With its national parks, tea-leaf covered hillsides and ancient architecture, Sri Lanka is a beauty to behold and a wonderful country for a holiday.
The birthplace of Experience Travel Group, Sri Lanka is a country close to our heart. When founders Sam and Tom travelled to its shores back in 2004, they witnessed not only the devastation of the Boxing Day tsunami but a resilient, brave people who pulled together until the country shone again.
What we love about holidays in Sri Lanka could fill a book, but let’s just say the white beaches, the atmospheric ruins, the mouth-watering array of curries and the verdant rainforests are a good place to start.
Our tours take in the impressive amount of UNESCO World Heritage sites on the island, mind-blowing hilltop scenery and Wilpattu National Park, Sri Lanka’s largest, boasting elephants, leopards and crocodiles to name but a few.
But we don’t just do the famous sites. We like to show our fellow travellers something different such as taking a step back in time with a tour of Kandy, historical walking tours which bring Colombo to life and luxurious, but remote, villas and architectural gems (both ancient and modern) hidden from the usual tourist trail.
Our long-standing bond with the locals and the land means we’ve become veritable experts on this part of the world, going beneath the surface to offer entirely unique holidays, available nowhere else. During your tour of Sri Lanka, you'll stay in characterful, comfortable boutique hotels and lodges that reflect the country’s spirit, with that element of luxury we know you love, so you'll experience the perfect combination of relaxation and discovery.
