Active Sri Lanka! ASL

Visiting: Sri Lanka
Trip Duration 14 Days

Rafting, Walking and Cycling Around Sri Lanka

Join us on an action-packed adventure across this spiritual island. We cycle backroads to discover ancient Buddhist cities, trek through verdant mountains and raft the white waters of the Central Highlands. We search for leopard in Willpaththu National Park and relax on the white sandy beaches of this tropical paradise known as 'Buddha's Island'.

Kandy Perahera
Every year there is a spectacular 10 day Festival in Kandy called the Esala Perahera. A replica of the famous Buddha's tooth relic is paraded around the town followed by a huge number of performers and elaborately adorned elephants. The scene is noisy, colourful and tremendous fun. If you travel on the 24th July 2017 departure you will be able to see this spectacle while you are in Kandy.
