Heritage Tour

From ancient times Sri Lanka has had a host of civilizations and cultures, from kingdoms dating back 2,500 years to the Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial eras.  Our tour starts with the historic trading centers of Negombo and Kalpitiya and moves on to Sri Lanka’s famous Cultural Triangle in the north-central part of the island.
We start in Negombo, rich in heritage with its Portuguese churches and Dutch canal, and head for the Kalpitiya peninsula, one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Sri lanka. Kalpitiya was a trading hub for the Portuguese who christened it “the island of Cardiva”.


Our tour leads on to the historic Cultural Triangle which includes a wealth of heritage and history. The points of the Triangle are the cities of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Kandy, and within lies famous Sigiriya rock and the cave temples of Dambulla. These are among seven UNESCO world heritage sites in the area. Our tour includes Anuradhapura and nearby Mihintale where Buddhism was introduced to Sri Lanka. We visit Sri Lanka’s ancient capital city, Polonnaruwa, with its fascinating remnants of an ancient civilization and the beautiful carved Buddhist statues of Gal Vihara. Sigiriya rock, with its frescoes and former palace, is a highlight of many visits to Sri Lanka. To the south lies romantic Kandy, the last Royal kingdom to resist the British and site of the famous Temple of the Tooth, a place of pilgrimage for Buddhists.
