Adventure Holidays in Sri Lanka

A Sri Lanka Holiday is a holiday like no other. A country with vast history and culture, an Adventure Company holiday will show you Buddist temples, climb rock formations and spot wildlife from elephants to crocodiles, monkeys and dolphins.

The teardrop-shaped island that was once called Ceylon is a magical place, perfect for an adventure holiday whether you are a single traveller, on a family adventure or holidaying as part of a larger group. There are ruined cities; extraordinary monuments and rock-top forts to explore, strangely colourful flora and fauna, trees and ruins running with monkeys, encounters with elephants and some of the world’s best beaches. Sri Lanka holidays have something for everyone and never fail to enchant and fascinate.

A cultural crossroads less than a third of the size of Britain, the legacy of Sri Lanka’s position on the sea route to the East is evident for all to see; from the Muslim fishing villages which saw the passing of early Arab traders, to the several common surnames which tell of Portuguese occupation and the neat hill villages left by the British. A Buddhist country, a visit to the religion’s holiest shrine the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy is a must, as is a visit to the ancient ruins and giant Buddha statues at Polonnaruwa. Nearby lies Sigiriya Rock where a climb to the summit gives spectacular views across the countryside, along with a chance to explore the ruins and a great way to enjoy your holiday in Sri Lanka.
