Walk Sri Lanka

 - $ 1868.63 per person

Sri Lanka’s hill country is a land of tea-laden hillsides, gurgling waterfalls, stirring mountains and clear hill-country air. Here, in temperatures akin to a beautiful English summer’s day, is wonderful walking country, a chance to experience Sri Lankan scenery at its finest and when the day is over to be sure, satisfied and weary, of a typically hospitable Sri Lankan welcome. Walk Sri Lanka is our most serious walking tour (the strollers among you should also check out our Nature Trek) and offers a chance to sample some of Sri Lanka’s most uplifting scenery on foot. Experienced guides are provided whenever necessary so that you can concentrate upon gazing at the scenery without worrying about the route. At the end of the day’s walk, you are transported by car or van to recover in carefully-selected guesthouse and hotels offering the chance to relax in comfort. Approximate trekking times indicated below will vary depending on individual fitness levels. We can tailor this walking journey according to your preferences, so feel free to ask for modifications.

Note: Weather considerations can apply when exploring the hill country. Trekking in the Knuckles Mountain Range is best avoided during the rainy season from November to mid-January. The months of July and August can also be pretty windy in the Knuckles. The Adam’s Peak climbing season begins in January and ends in April. We can suggest all the adjustments necessary.
