Travel to the Northern parts of Sri Lanka, where caramel-sanded beaches are ideal in the summer months and wildlife is vibrantly abundant with dolphins in Kalpitiya, elephants in Minneriya and leopards in Wilpattu. Begin your journey with a visit to Kandy and witness an annual Buddhist festival of Esala Perahera, where elephants wear bright-colored cloaks and dancers perform spectacular acrobatics. A perfect mix of culture, nature and wildlife, this tour will take you on an unforgettable discovery of the island’s multicultural diversity, a thousand-year history of multiple ancient kingdoms and a visit to the largely unexplored Northern peninsula with stunning lagoons and active Buddhist and Hindu temples existing since the dawn of times.
