About the supplier
Experience Travel Group (experiencetravelgroup.com), specialists in Sri Lanka, will organize the perfect trip to this beautiful island in the Indian Ocean where the good weather awaits you from December to April, the delicious high season months. With fewer visitors since the start of the pandemic, major cultural sites like Sigiriya will be quiet. Much of Sri Lanka remains to be discovered – from the national parks with their extraordinary wildlife to the east coast with its incredible surf.
Heading north, Jaffna is the cultural heart of the Tamil community, well worth exploring with a driver/guide (specialty of Experience Travel Group). See elephants and blue whales in a single day, as well as leopards, monkeys and birds. A wildlife guide is essential. The food scene includes hoppers, curries, sambals and exotic fruits galore.
This unique island is ideal for families, honeymooners, surfers, hikers and cyclists, offering culture, wildlife, train journeys through the tea region and among the rice fields, as well as adventure, stunning beaches and spas.
As Sri Lanka recovers from its recent economic woes and rebuilds under its new government, the welcome is warm. Choose from great-value hotels, gorgeous boutique properties and five-star luxury resorts. The depreciation of the Sri Lankan rupee means that your pound is going even further. Shoppers will love the quality – and prices – of the handmade products that make tempting gifts to take home
A £250 voucher for any Experience Travel Group stay booked directly with the company, subject to availability.
