Setting out to explore Sri Lanka's great variety, on this family adventure holiday to Sri Lanka we see many of its most colourful attractions - towering waterfalls, spice gardens, Indian Ocean beaches, historic towns and some of the Buddhist world's most remarkable temples. After a village walk and a visit to the amazing rock fortress at Sigiriya, we travel to the ‘hill-capital' of Kandy, where we have the chance to make our own souvenir batik. We then have a session of fun whitewater rafting on the Kelani River, before heading up to Newara Eliya, to visit a tea plantation and hike to the dramatic viewpoint at World's End. We also visit the orphaned baby elephants at the Elephant Transit home. Jeep safaris at Udawalawe and Yala take us close to wild elephants and maybe even an elusive leopard, before we round off this great holiday with 2 days at the coast for surf, sand and optional watersports.
