Enjoy an unforgettable sojourn to stunning Sri Lanka, with sightseeing tours and some beach downtime, including all travel and excursions

Sri Lanka is a country strewn with cultural jewels and natural treasures. Its impressive landscapes host lush tropical forests, expansive dazzling lakes and magnificent mountain ranges. All this is scattered with captivating temples and ancient monuments, making it a must-do for world wanderers the globe over. This 12-night escape gives you a true taste of the place, whisking you from cultural landmarks to the calming coastline.

You'll kick off in Sigiriya, where you'll take in the iconic Lion Rock, ride a tuk-tuk in a local village and enjoy a peaceful boat excursion upon the lake. From here, you'll also take a Jeep safari into Minneriya National Park, which is famous for its elephant population, before moving on to Kandy, visiting the Spice Gardens, a batik factory and the Temple of the Tooth en route – the latter of which is revered for holding a relic of the tooth of Buddha himself. You'll also visit the Peradeniya Botanical Garden, famed for its colourful displays of tropical plants.

Then, you'll slow it all down with two nights spent right by the beach in Bentota, on Sri Lanka's west coast, before five nights at an award-winning hotel in Negombo. With plenty of time to yourself here, you could find yourself swimming in the clear waters of the Indian Ocean, exploring the city's varied architecture and lively ambience, souvenir shopping, or simply lying back on the beach with a good book before returning home.
