Touring in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka being an ethnically, culturally and climatically diverse country, complete with accommodation to suit all needs in all parts of the island, provides one with an overabundance of choices when opting for tours in the country.

Tours can be customised according to an individual’s needs and there are many tour operators functioning that can handle all the finer details and offer the best packages and rates, most of whom can be made contact with online for added convenience.

Touring highlights include checking out the country’s incredible sights from the air, with operators offering hot air ballooning in Sri Lanka’s highly acclaimed cultural triangle in the centre of the island with the tour generally starting at Kandalama, rising to about 2,000 to 3,000 feet, providing panoramic views and ending in Dambulla.

The cultural triangle of course is impressive even when not viewed from air and tour operators offer extensive packages covering the North Central towns of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya and Dambulla where remarkable archaeological ruins are located and bring to life Sri Lanka’s long and diverse history to travellers.

Yet another popular option for tours are the pristine stretches of beaches, the best of which can be found on the Southern and Eastern coasts of the country, perfect for diving, snorkelling, surfing or even just watching a breathtaking sunset.

The hill country, home to the famous Ceylon tea, is also a popular area to tour with hill slopes dotted with lush tea plantations, stunning mountain views, the town of Nuwara Eliya which to this day retains its Colonial influence and the hill capital of Kandy.
