Is this trip right for you:
  • Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
  • You will need an excellent level of fitness to complete the multi-day treks and summit Adam's Peak. Climbing Adam's Peak is a challenge that shouldn't be underestimated. Elevation is above 2200m and we start trekking at midnight to summit in the dark in order to be able to witness the sunrise. It's an unforgettable climb for sure, but you'll need to be well prepared to fully enjoy the experience.
  • The weather in this region varies seasonally. Be prepared to get sweaty, and for the occasional rainstorm which may require a change of plans.
  • Sri Lanka gets hot and humid, drink plenty of water and remember a good quality hat and sun block.
