    FAQs on this experiential holiday

  • Can I make this a longer/shorter tour:

    Each route can be tailor made to 7, 12 or 16 days or adjusted to your travel dates.

  • Are these Sri Lanka tours available all year?

    Due to the monsoon seasons, the Northern and Eastern routes are best done within the periods mentions, but we can tailor the Southern route to suite your travel dates.

  • Can I have a mix of luxury and value Accommodation:

    Yes but in some places there is not much choice as the experiences depend on where you stay

  • How much traveling is involved?

    If you want to cover all locations in a route you will need to travel a fair distance between each place, but once you get there, it all slows down to a leisurely pace.

  • Is this good for a family holiday?

    No but we have some lovely bespoke family holidays in Sri Lanka for older kids and Junior Rangers for younger kids.

  • Can I end the tour with a beach stay and which coast should I choose?

    Each route includes a beach stay. But if you want more, we can advice which beach to stay at. From November to April when the monsoons hit the east, the best beaches are in the West, South West and Deep South of the island. You can stay along this coast even in the Summer months of July and August but seas are slightly rough. From May to October, you find some of the world’s best beaches in the stunning East Coast where you can wade out for hundreds of feet into the clear blue shallow seas.
