Trip Overview

If you've ever Googled 'beach holidays' chances are Sri Lanka made the list. And yep, the beaches are pretty bloody good. But trust us, there's a sh*t load more going on in this South Asian country than just surf, sand and sunburn. From ancient rock fortresses to Dutch colonial cities, elephant safaris in lush national parks to whale watching off the coast, scenic train rides through tea plantations to awe-inspiring hikes at sunrise - this trip uncovers the side to Sri Lanka you didn't know existed.


Trip Itinerary

  1. Negombo, Sri Lanka


    Touch down at Bandaranaike airport, scan the crowd for your airport transfer (he'll be holding the sign with your name obvs) and take a load off - this is the start of 10 days of fuss-free, flavour-filled fun. Get amongst the seaside vibes early with optional visit to the local fish market. Watch the locals paddle their fishy oruvas (canoes) into the lagoon and tuck into some fresh AF seafood while you're at it. If you've got time, give any jet lag the flick with a cycle around the Dutch-style canals and Buddhist temples. And tonight? Time to meet the gang over an included dinner. Cheers to that.
