Flexible trips packed with adventure

Small, safe and packed with adventure, Sri Lanka is a fantastic family destination. Wildlife lovers will enjoy spotting elephants, leopards and crocodiles in Yala National Park and if you have older kids up for an active adventure, why not try climbing to the top of Adam’s Peak at sunrise? Our bite-size 2-4 day trips piece together easily, giving you the chance to create a personalised Sri Lanka family holiday. Alternatively, take a peek at our ready-made family itinerary which can be tweaked to your liking.

Getting around in Sri Lanka

Throughout your Sri Lanka family holiday, you’ll travel by private car with an English-speaking driver. This not only gives you complete flexibility of where and when you stop, but also an in-depth insight into Sri Lanka as you can ask your driver questions about the places you’ll visit along the way. Plus all cars have air-conditioning to keep the whole family chilled. For that authentic local experience, take the train from Nuwara Eliya to Ella.

Peace of mind with our local partners

In Sri Lanka, we work with a local partner who is just as passionate about meaningful travel as we are. They work closely with our Product Managers to discover new and enriching experiences that benefit the local population. The staff at our local office are available 24/7 in case you need assistance at any point throughout your Sri Lanka family holiday.
