Think Sri Lanka, and think of wild elephants, jungles, tea plantations, spices and palm-fringed beaches. All of which makes for a wonderful family adventure, designed to not involve too much driving which can always be a downside to travelling with children in Sri Lanka. The itinerary can of course be tailored, but it focusing on adventures in the hill country before flying directly down to the south coast for a beach stay. You’ll have a driver/guide and a large vehicle so it can easily fit all the children and bags and we will offer a variety of experiences that will make the children smile (very few children find wandering around archeological sites that interesting for instance). They often love meeting elephants for the first time, walking through spice plantations, clambering through tea fields and seeing how tea is made, finding out how rubber is produced. For older children, we can jazz up the activity such as offering white-water rafting or cycling through the paddy-fields around Galle. Some even like to try their hand at learning Sri Lankan cookery, and we’ll take you all to the market to buy the produce first, honing those all important haggling skills that will come in handy in later life. We know that as much as the children will love the immersive experiences on offer, they also want a good swimming pool to jump into each afternoon, so it goes without saying we select hotels that keep them entertained. You’ll end on the south coast in a superb beach hotel, where you can all kick-back and put your feet up before flying home – a perfect blend of adventure and beach-time that makes for a wonderful family holiday to Sri Lanka.
