SRI LANKAN FAMILY SUMMER HOLIDAY

A 16 Day Tour
NEGOMBO – CULTURAL TRIANGLE – NUWARA ELIYA – KOSLANDA – PASSIKUDAH – WILPATTU – NEGOMBO

This summer season specific family friendly itinerary is perfect for those who want to explore the island’s gorgeous central, hill and eastern destinations. The journey ties in coastal, ancient towns, UNESCO World Heritage sites, game drives in Wilpattu for a less touristic, visually stunning lush landscape, secluded waterfalls and beautiful treks amidst untouched forest in Koslanda, lounging on one of Sri Lanka’s most brilliant beaches that open out to turquoise waters and sampling the island’s freshest seafood in Passikudah. Drive times may be a little longer, but are well worth the time spent on the road taking in equally beautiful scenery. The summer season in Sri Lanka is full of surprises, with the East Coast at its best, and sites each have their own amazing experiences in store.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Visit UNESCO Word Heritage Sites
  • Visits to tea factories
  • Swim under secluded waterfalls in peaceful jungles
  • Snorkeling off the east coast
  • Game Drives in Wilpattu National Park to see elephants and leopards
