Village Walks in Sri Lanka

Indulge in our holiday itinerary where you can relax on a scenic village walk while observing the beautiful simplicity of rural Sri Lankan lifestyle

Go far away from the world ‘as you know it’.

In a world full of clutter, we sometimes forget that there are simple people, living simple lives in remote locations. There are rural communities in Sri Lanka where a typical day starts with the first streak of light, where the fields must be watered before the sun gets too hot, where life revolves around the market, the school, the temple, the lake. On an Ayu in the Wild village walk you feel grounded. Quite literally.

Another highlight was meeting the local farming family, visiting their onion farm, being taken by the farmer’s son to his school and classrooms and finally on our way out a look at the large wholesale market where these individual farmers bring in their produce.

The naturalist spent time with me walking up the road pointing out trees , butterflies and other creatures. He is a lovely man very knowledgeable and generous. Meeting the jungle-farming family was an eye opening experience. The dedication of a family to live off the land and be self sufficient is what many of us aspire to… Taking a shower in the open air – delightful!! ..The staff prepared delicious morning fresh juices and went out of their way to make a celebratory birthday dinner for me.
