Sri Lanka

A tropical paradise of golden Buddhist stupas, verdant tea plantations and majestic wildlife

Adventure Holidays in Sri Lanka

With sandy, palm-fringed beaches, jewelled cultural treasures and magical chance encounters with elephants all on offer, Sri Lanka has a magic all of its own. On your trip to Sri Lanka, visit the ancient rock fortress at Sigiriya, rising high above the rainforest canopy; see elephants in their natural environment tugging at the grass and grazing on palm fronds; and watch out for darting leopards too. Discover rare species and the gemstones that first drew travellers here; explore paddy fields by bike; lose yourself in maze-like rows of highland tea plantations; and let juddering tuk tucks zip you through the underbrush to hidden expanses of beach. Holidays in Sri Lanka provide a fantastic mix of culture, history, people, food, wildlife and beaches, and Exodus – with the help of our expert local guides – promises to get you closer to the action than anyone else.
