There is also plenty of guided sightseeing in Colombo, Kandy, Dambulla and Sigiriya, as well as in less well-known destinations in Sri Lanka's north, such as Jaffna and Trincomalee.

The best places to visit in Sri Lanka

Ancient tradition meets modern-day. Lush greenery meets thriving city life. Asian culture meets European influence. In a country packed full of contrasts, we've handpicked our highlights, from the Lion Rock fortress of Sigiriya to the historic cave temples of Dambulla.


Protruding from the treetops of Sri Lanka's verdant green jungle, the Sigiriya 'Lion Rock' fortress is one of the country's most iconic attractions. See the incredible carved paws at the foot of the site and climb the 1,200 steps to the ruins at the summit, which boat the most spectacular views.

Udawalawe National Park

Sri Lanka is the best place outside of Africa for a wildlife safari, and Udawalawe is one of the safari highlights. Home to leopards, sloth bears, and huge herds of Asian elephants, it's a must-visit for any traveller to the Tear Drop Isle.


One of Sri Lanka's most glorious ancient cities, cultural Polonnaruwa is probably best known for its giant Buddha sculptures and historic palace ruins. Your tour guide will be able top explain the sacred history of this famous place.


Ancient Buddhist temples located in cavernous caves, Dambulla is a unique attraction that we visit on all of our tours to the country. Boasting intricate carvings and Buddha statues dating back hundreds of years.

Nuwara Eliya

If you want to take in some of Sri Lanka's best countryside then the train ride to Nuwara Eliya is the way to do it. Glide through stunning views of waterfalls, tea plantations, and mountains to arrive at this cool colonial hill station.


Sri Lanka's modern capital is the starting point for all of our tours, and offers all the amenities one would expect in a world city. Great restaurants, shops, and bars, with cultural attractions including Galle Fort and the stunning Galle Face Green, a seaside promenade by the Indian Ocean, where you can watch the locals playing a game of cricket.
