As a family holiday destination, Sri Lanka has everything. The history of ancient temples and crumbling cities, the rich culture, world class beaches, and more elephants than you can shake a stick at.
Tailored Journeys are Sri Lanka experts, with our founder having grown up and lived in Sri Lanka for 30 years. We've handpicked the best family resorts and the best children-orientated hotels, and combined them with a range of private tour options to give you both freedom, flexibility, safety and the little ones a sense of adventure.
There’s plenty of activities in Sri Lanka for families to enjoy, too. Climb Lions Rock in Sigiriya for incredible views of the surrounding countryside, or why not jump on a bike and cycle through vast rice fields, quaint villages and ancient temples.
A family holiday in Sri Lanka wouldn't be complete without taking one of the most iconic train journeys in the world, between Kandy and Ella. Sit on the steps of the train and let the warm air brush your face as you take in the incredible scenery of our vast tea plantations.
