Sri Lanka Tours & Holidays

Pristine rainforest. Ancient rock fortresses. Wildlife aplenty. And some of the most perfect beaches on the planet. There are so many reasons to visit Sri Lanka.

One day you could be hiking the Knuckles Mountain Range, high in Sri Lanka’s hill country; the next, travelling by train through tea plantations and into the mountains. And when you start each morning with curry, hoppers and a cup of the local tea, you know it’s going to be a good day. Climb Lion Rock, a dramatic carved-rock fortress in Sigiriya, and explore Jaffna in the island’s north, previously off-limits to travellers. The only struggle you’ll have in Sri Lanka is knowing where to start.

The trip was well planned. The experiences were fabulous a definite must is the Elephants and Turtle hatchery. Our leader Nilanga was just amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation not 5 star but you can’t expect that. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent trip with enjoyable trips, weather, food, people, Hotels and mostly group leader. However, unlike previous Intrepid trip, some additional activities were expensive which we had to pay for

Excellent introduction to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka for those with a limited time frame. This trip covers some highlights of the coast as well as the interior and gives you a flavour of the country without feeling rushed. Friendly guides, beautiful scenery and delicious food, don't hesitate just book it, you won't regret it!

I would highly recommend using intrepid! The tour was planned out so well and the staff couldn’t have been nicer! I would highly recommend for both solo or group travellers.
