It is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 12 days taking you through Anuradhapura, Kandy, Jaffna and 5 other destinations in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka Explorer is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

This fusion – found in the history, the culture, the Arabian, Indian and European-inspired food – makes Sri Lanka a delicious melting pot to explore. From laid-back Negombo venture through ancient Anuradhapura to the lesser explored north, the secrets and hidden places of Jaffna, and on to the beautiful coastline of Trincomalee.

Spend time with locals keen to share their homes, food, and stories on an adventure that will leave you with many of your own to tell.
