This trip is designed for those wanting to travel between June and September in Sri Lanka. During this time the weather is better in the north and east of Sri Lanka; the west and southern coast are wet during this time so we’ve simply avoided it. The trip is wonderfully authentic and allows you to explore some of Sri Lanka’s beautiful untouched east coast beaches! Whale & dolphin watching, diving and snorkelling are also possible during this season, which is a treat.
The trip takes in some of the ancient cities, such as Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There’s some time in the middle to relax on the east coast, an undeveloped stretch of coastline with pristine white sands. After a stop on the beach the trip heads in-land and up to Kandy, a city in the hills surrounded by beautiful verdant greenery. This is where you’ll find the Temple of the Tooth Relic. Take a scenic train journey further up into Tea Country, staying in Hatton, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Bandarawela, Haputale or Koslanda, where the landscape is simply picture perfect. The trip ends in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s contemporary capital city, with lots of wonderful street food and markets. We feel this trip is excellent for couples and families wishing to get away during the UK summer.
