“We have lived in Sri Lanka all our lives and know the soul of our island. On each bespoke tour, we connect you with Sri Lanka’s best experiences hosted by fascinating locals. No two holidays are the same. By day we’ll share our island’s most unique places, beaches, wildlife and cultural treasures. By night you’ll stay in the best boutique hotels, luxury villas, tree house lodges and private glamping sites. We’d love to hear from you and share the very best of our island, famously known as Ceylon. An island with a million things to do.” Get in touch.
Chamintha & Rajindra, Founders & Chief Explorers
I am 103 rivers flowing through beautiful rural villages.
I am the Ceylon Tea mountains.
I am jungles filled with elephants and leopards.
I am the soft sand on the edge of a blue Indian Ocean.
I am home to blue whales and 33 endemic birds.
I am the spices that ignite your senses.
I am the warm-hearted Sri Lankans, inheritors of a heritage thousands of years old.
I am an island, warm all year.

What makes us different?
We tailor-make every trip. No two holidays we design are the same because we're passionate about sharing the side to Sri Lanka which will inspire you. Just you…not someone else.
Whether you’re dining under the stars at a five-star luxury beach camp, playing cricket with local school kids or cooking up hoppers on a customized experiential holiday, you’ll be transported from the ordinary to the extraordinary by local community-based hosts who have rich stories to share.
We advocate against elephant back safari rides, innovate to ensure our environmental footprint is light and our community ties stay strong. To a sensitive, bio-diversity hotspot with 21 million people, it matters.
