A Sri Lankan Sojourn

A Sri Lankan Sojourn

A no-go zone for travelers during the decades of civil war, Sri Lanka is now weaving its spell again and we invite you to be entranced. From its justly famed regional cuisine, through its un-crowded golden beaches, to Hindu temples, Buddhist shrines, mosques and churches rubbing shoulders, it’s a world away from the roads more travelled through the rest of Asia.

Don’t just slot into someone else pre-designed trip – help create your own small group tour from the ground up. We invite you and nine others to help us plan our 2018 tour offering – what you see, where you stay and all delicious things in-between. We want to make darn sure that you’re levering all aspects of the trip to make it the best it can be.

This combines all the benefits of independent travel (exploring, taking chances, having adventures at your own pace) with the safety of having a group behind you to ease the risk taking and provide like minded company.

Check out what we did last year on the itinerary attached as a starting point.

Our Australian guide, Paul van Reyk is a gastronome, food writer and food critic, passionate about discovering the world through its diverse cuisine.

Born in Sri Lanka Paul is particularly passionate about introducing you to the rich diversity of his homeland. For more than ten years Paul has shared his extensive knowledge of Sri Lanka through leading tours across the country.

Paul is as especially excited to be returning to the North of his homeland with it distinctive cuisine and culture.
