Explore the Cultural Triangle, head into the highlands and embark on a jeep safari in search of elephants and leopards on this 8-night tour taking in some of Sri Lanka’s most fascinating spots

Experience the diversity of Sri Lanka as you travel from cosmopolitan Colombo to the charming coastal city of Galle via millennia-old kingdoms, lush, tumbling hills and wildlife-filled plains. Take in UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, whose royal palace ruins perch on a 600ft-rock; the Dambulla Cave Temple, where rock-cut temples have been drawing worshippers for more than 2,000 years; and Kandy’s Temple of the Sacred Tooth, the most revered site in the country. 
Venture into the hills past cascading waterfalls and rural villages to reach Bandarawela – a charming hill town known for its English colonial architecture – and catch sunrise from the spot where Scottish tea magnate Sir Thomas Lipton used to come to observe the surrounding tea plantations.
For a glimpse into Sri Lanka’s renowned wildlife, endeavour on a jeep safari in Udawalawe National Park – one of the best places in the country to see Asian elephants – and keep your eyes peeled for leopards too. Finish off your trip with an optional extension in Waskaduwa, a laid-back beach town where the blues of the Indian Ocean stretch off into the horizon and striking coral formations scatter the shores.
