Sri Lanka - Northern Explorer

Ancient cities, beautiful coastline, friendly locals, sumptuous cuisine, diverse flora and fauna and rugged mountains. Sri Lanka has it all and is well known to many travellers but some of the country remains still relatively unexplored. Until quite recently the north was under the tight grip of a fierce civil war. Hostilities have ended but the visible scars remain and we venture into this region to experience much of the amazing scenery, wildlife, history and culture that makes Sri Lanka much loved but without the visitors as we see how the north is emerging from the trauma of the recent past.


Sri Lanka - Northern Explorer

Style: TravellerCultural discovery away from the crowds
Duration: 15 days
Type: GroupSmall group tours with a maximum of 12 travellers

Experience a different side to this wonderful island. This small group tour heads off the beaten track to the north and the Jaffna peninsular, an area left battle-scarred by a fierce civil war. We explore the sun-baked and windswept isolated islands of Mannar and Delft where wild ponies roam the landscape. We visit ancient cities, colourful temples, spectacular coastline, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and also get up close to nature in Wilpattu National Park.
