Sri Lanka - described by Marco Polo as the most beautiful island in the world - is an increasingly popular destination for those seeking a holiday away from the usual tourist circuit. Known as the island of serendipity, it offers a wide variety of sights, terrain and accommodation. If you are seeking adventure, Sri Lanka offers hill country plantation estates to jungle, rainforests to tree houses alongside rapid rivers. Go in search of wild Elephants and eagles, or adopt the bygone community life of the traditional Veddah villagers on an eco estate.
You will never be far away from beautiful countryside, wildlife, indigenous birds and plants. A car and driver is the sensible way to get around the island but mountain bikes, White Water Rafting, elephant rides, kayaking, all add to the fun. Yoga and ayurveda are alternatives for the calmer adventurist.
