Get off-the-beaten-track in Sri Lanka

Unique Travel’s Discover Sri Lanka tour includes a variety of fun activities and excursions away from the tropical island’s main tourist centres.

Rarely offered together, these ‘real’ experiences include: a bullock cart ride, crossing a lake on a traditional canoe with outrigger, sampling local cuisine in a Sri Lankan mud house, getting right off the beaten track by taking a bike ride on the small back roads, taking the most scenic train ride in Sri Lanka through the tea plantations, white water rafting on the Keleni River through the rainforest and elephant riding and walking in the Horton Plains National Park.

The 15-day escorted tour also takes in the major cultural historic sites: Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, wildlife watching and time to relax by the beach.

Prices are from just £630pp based on two sharing and include airport transfers, guides, air-conditioned transport, B&B in all hotels and entrance fees to sites; flights extra.
