We told you about Sri Lanka in our first Launch Week post, and the first Thomson Airways flight to this Indian Ocean isle leaves the tarmac at London Gatwick in November 2016. We’ve created some brilliant tours, excursions and packages for you to pick from, so you can experience the country on your own terms.
Sri Lanka’s beaches are the kind you daydream about on those cold, dark, is-it-ever-going-to-stop-raining Monday mornings. The caramel sweeps of sand that fringe the country’s west coast are pinned down by palm trees practically as tall as The Shard. All of our hotels (including the brand-new and super-fancy Riu Sri Lanka) are within footsteps of the sea, so we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to glue yourself to your sun lounger for your entire holiday.
But if you can peel yourself away, our portfolio of excursions makes exploring a piece of cake.
If you’re heading away for 2 weeks, you can pair some time on the beach with an action-crammed tour of the country. The 3-night Highlights of Sri Lanka tour does exactly what it says on the tin, covering all the country’s best bits – including Sigiriya Rock and the Temple of the Tooth – in a few short days. That should leave you more than enough time to get a decent tan and work your way through your hotel’s cocktail list.
If you’ve got a bigger appetite for adventure, check out the 7-night Discover Sri Lanka tour. One minute you’ll be navigating a cave temple, the next sipping a piping-hot brew at one of the country’s world-famous tea plantations.
