"See ancient ruins, sprawling tea plantations and colonial cities on this grand tour of Sri Lanka."

Begin your journey in the city of Colombo, where new and old merge as skyscrapers stand tall next to handsome colonial buildings. Travel back in time next as you visit Anuradhapura, home to the ruins of a royal capital that exists today as a fascinating archaeological site. A later visit to the old medieval capital of Polonnaruwa will leave you debating which site is the more enthralling, and you can ponder this as you marvel at the sheer magnitude of the Sea of Parakama. Your tour will also be full of natural beauty; you'll get up close and personal with one of the world's most majestic creatures as you take an elephant ride in Habarana, as well as visiting the elephant orphanage in Pinnawela. Sightseeing around the lush greenery of Nuwara Eliya and its wealth of tea plantations will uncover a region whose temperate climate is wonderfully refreshing. A visit to the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary in Horton Plains unveils a wealth of wildlife dramatically different to that found in the lower regions. A trip to a turtle sanctuary in Kodgosa caps off an unforgettable tour.
