Our Sri Lanka Itineraries

Journey to the North of Sri Lanka

Explore Sri Lanka’s ‘cultural triangle’, including such well known sights as Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa, before venturing north to the old Portuguese port city of Trincomalee and the Tamil capital of Jaffna, which was off limits for so many years. Although tourism is new to this area, the people are welcoming and the culture fascinating. A train journey returning to Colombo completes this 10-day itinerary.
