Sri Lanka Family Adventure Holidays

Sri Lanka is a stunningly beautiful tropical island located south of India - like a teardrop falling into the Indian Ocean. Its golden beaches, wildlife reserves and spectacular mountain scenery make for a whole range of diverse habitats. Its isolated position has created some unique features, in particular its big leopard population, large herds of elephants and numerous endemic bird species.

Our family activity and adventure holidays in Sri Lanka are shown below:

"Sri Lanka was perfect - it didn't fail to amaze and the children loved every minute of it, especially the beaches!"
The Robson family, Ceylon Discovery

Sri Lanka offers stunning varied scenery and is smaller than Ireland, making it perfect for families who want to spend minimal time travelling between places. Udawalawe National Park rivals many famous East African national parks and provides fantastic elephant-watching experiences. Sigiriya, known as the 'fortress in the sky' is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with spectacular panoramic views over the surrounding forests and Kandy is famous for its elephants and the Temple of the Tooth. Sri Lanka is also home to beautiful palm-fringed beaches including Mirissa, a popular whale and dolphin watching destination.
