Sri Lanka, Family Tour (15 days)

A 2 week Sri Lanka Family Tour. Relax on the beach at Negombo, explore the World Heritage ancient city of Polonnaruwa by bicycle, scale the dramatic rock fortress of Sigirya, raft down the jungle-lined Kelani River, (where Bridge on the River Kwai was filmed), hike across Horton Plains National Park to the spectacular ‘World’s End’, go on a jeep safari to see Minneriya’s elephant gathering, take boat trips snorkelling or whale watching in the Indian Ocean, embark on an ‘urban adventure’ with a tour of Colombo’s bazaar by night, of course sample the delicious Sri Lankan curries in local cafes, with plenty of opportunities to meet the super-friendly island inhabitants. This wide range of activities and stunning landscapes, plus the Island’s rich culture and history, ought to keep families of any age, shape and size happy, enthralled and fascinated.

By switching the beach activities from the northeast coast and Nilaveli during the western monsoon from November to April, to the south coast near Galle for May to October, means the tour and all its activities is suitable throughout the year.
