Sri Lanka holidays

Sri Lanka may be small, but it sure packs a punch. From the golden beaches that encircle the island to the multitude of flourishing National Parks, ancient ruins and colourful temples scattered throughout its jungle interior – it seemingly has it all. Whether you kick back at one of the popular beach resorts, trek to the pinnacle of Sigiriya Rock or take a tour up to untouched Jaffna, Sri Lanka is sure to delight.

  • We’ve been travelling to Sri Lanka for a very long time and have strong relationships with both our long-time ground agents and many of the hotels.
  • With plenty of culture as well as great beaches and wildlife, it’s got everything
  • Yala National Park is home to one of the highest concentration of leopards in the world, so chances of spotting one are high!
  • Great family-friendly destination especially the quieter eastern coast
  • With Cinnamon Air flights you can make the most of your time on the ground, avoiding long road transfers
