Take the family on an unforgettable journey through magical Sri Lanka
Naturally gorgeous, culturally captivating and steeped in mysticism, Sri Lanka makes for a wonderful introduction to both travel and the Indian subcontinent. Discover temples carved from cliffs in Dambulla and fortresses built on boulders in Sigiriya. Cycle through peaceful scenes of village life and tour working tea plantations in the hill country around Bandarawela. Visit the country's most significant religious relic, the Temple of the Tooth, in Kandy, safari through Udawalawe National Park in search of leopards and monkeys, see baby elephants up close at a rescue centre and chill out by the beach in Mirissa. Educational, active and leisurely paced, this trip is everything you could want in a family getaway.
Take in sweeping vistas of the outlying terrain from Sigiriya's rock-top fortress
Spy elephants in their natural habitat at Uda Walawe National Park and see rescued infants up close at the onsite Elephant Transit Home
Learn the steps of traditional Kandyan dance during lessons with the locals
Soak up some beach time along the pristine, palm-fringed sands of Mirissa
Though its equatorial position means fairly constant year-round temperatures, the summer months in Sri Lanka are very hot with short, sharp monsoons in the south-west of the country. Be sure to use adequate sun protection and drink plenty of water.
We visit a number of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

A magical family experience in the wonderful country that is Sri Lanka, where the people are always friendly, the food a delight, the scenery spectacular and culture and history fascinating. Our kids met other kids and had a ball experiencing another way of life every day. We felt at ease with the tour as arranged and guided by Intrepid.

Our family of 4 including a 15 year old and a 13 year old all enjoyed this experience so much. Our guide Yasi taught us so much about his beautiful country including the history, language and culture. We all loved the local food experiences with delicious meals.

A truely memorable holiday.
