Sri Lanka Adventure Tours
Sri Lanka adventure tours offer the perfect opportunity to explore the jewel of the Indian Ocean. Sri Lanka has it all - endless white sandy beaches, UNESCO World Heritage sites, wildlife, religious iconography and ancient cultures. Huge Buddha statues litter your journey throughout. During your Sri Lanka adventure tour, you’ll visit the ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, whose extensive ruins are well preserved, and can be explored on foot and on bike.
Your reward for scaling the 200 metre rock fortress at Sigiriya (Lions Rock) is a visit to the stunning cave temples of Dambulla and an elephant ride through the jungle. A Sri Lanka adventure tour wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Kandy, where you can barter for arts and crafts at the bazaar, view traditional dancing, relax by the lake and visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic (legend has it Buddha’s tooth is kept here). Close up encounters with orphaned elephants at Pinnawala will be a memory that will stay with you for a lifetime, and trekking in Horton Plains National Park to ‘World’s End’ - where the 2,000 metre-high plateau plunges 700 to 1,000 metres to the valley floor, will leave you in awe of Sri Lanka.
