Travel to Sri Lanka
Immerse Yourself in a Different Place and Time
Sri Lanka has a rich Buddhist heritage and is the oldest continually Buddhist country in the world. It is also a country of tropical forests, diverse landscapes and warm, friendly people.
A&K takes you on an intriguing journey to Lanka, with expert guides showing you a culture that goes back 3,000 years. The sacred Kingdom of Anuradhapur, Sri Lanka’s longest-serving capital, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The Kingdom of Kandy has literally risen from the ashes; after being burned and ravaged over and over it still maintains beautifully carved palaces and temples, preserved for nearly 500 years.
But Sri Lanka offers travelers much more than its past. In a country just 70 miles long and 140 miles wide, it has 15 national parks showcasing an abundance of wildlife (including the endangered Sri Lankan leopard), nearly 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, 350 waterfalls and hundreds of sleepy villages where life still revolves around coconut farming and the distinctive Sri Lanka stilt-fishing. The Colombo National Museum features ancient sculptures and sketches dating back to the 4th century.
Travelling in luxury, A&K’s experts take you on a fascinating journey of discovery in this inspiring, ancient land. Join one of our small group journeys or create your own tailor made journey of a lifetime.
