The beautiful tear-drop island lies just off the south coast of India and is truly a land of contrasts. It boasts palm-fringed beaches, cultural treasures, lush tea estates and numerous game parks and wildlife in abundance.
You can travel to the cultural triangle in the centre of the island and explore the ancient cities and ruins from the comfort of your eco-lodge before journeying into the cool Hill Country and stepping back in time whilst staying in a colonial bungalow surrounded by miles of tea plantations.
To finish your adventure we recommend heading back down to the South coast for a spot of windsurfing and whale watching before returning to your fabulous beach hotel.
In addition, how about including a safari in one of the many national parks such as Yala or Udawalawe where buffalo, leopards, sloth bears and elephants are an essential part of a trip to this beautiful island.
White water rafting, elephant rides, hot air ballooning and scuba diving; the possibilities are truly endless. Sri Lanka is an island of infinite possibilities where not even the most hardened traveller, or teenager, can get bored.
