Spend a Memorable Family Trip in Sri Lanka This Summer Holiday – Tropical Getaways

A land of contrasts, a land of exotic beauty, a land of adventure, a land of breathtaking natural splendour; Sri Lanka is all this and more and makes for the perfect getaway for a fun and exciting family holiday! With so much, to see, do and experience, this island nation will spoil you for choice and one of the best ways to enjoy what is on offer is to set off on specially designed Sri Lanka family tours organised by local travel specialists such as Nkar Travel House.

If you have the type of family who are looking to spend their holidays having fun in the sun, sand and surf then the island’s South Coast is definitely the place to go to. Sun drenched shores, azure ocean waters and scintillating seafood are hallmarks of this coastal stretch. Spend you days lazing on the shore or if you prefer taking part in a myriad of water sports that the kids will love too. Snorkelling and banana boat rides are an activity that young and old alike can try out and make for unforgettable family times. Of course if you are looking for more of a rush there is always waterskiing, jet skiing and for families with more grown up kids there is the chance to go diving too. For a change of scenery families can visit the country’s East Coast which offers different kind of coastal environs with shallow waters that are ideal for swimming as well.

More exotic thrills await at National Parks in Sri Lanka such as Yala where you can embark on a thrilling leopard safari or Udawalawe where your journey into the wild will give you a chance to see the island’s resident gentle giants, the Sri Lankan Elephant, in their natural habitat. If you fancy getting up close with these creatures then plan a visit to the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage where you can actually get up close with elephants, seeing them engage in daily activities, being bathed and for a special treat, watching and sometimes even participating in feeding baby elephants too!

For something different you have the option of heading to the central region where the landscape changes dramatically, with coastal backdrops giving way to breathtaking mountain ranges. Of course there is the chance to also try some white water rafting in Kitulgala, climb the magnificent Sigiriya rock fortress, visit the newly opened Pinnawala Open Zoo and explore ancient archaeological sites in Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, seemingly lost in time; family holidays will never be the same again!
