Sri Lanka & India Family Holidays

All our family holidays are uniquely designed for each of our clients. We know India & Sri Lanka inside out and can work with you to design a family holiday that not only visits places that are suited to you but also an itinerary that is logistically efficient! With the following India & Sri Lanka family holidays ideas we try and give you a feel for what is and what isn't possible to achieve in a certain amount of time. These ideas are merely suggestions and we can tweak and tailor-make everything to exactly what you want to do on your holiday. Call us on 01273 923100 to start planning your Sri Lanka & India Family Holiday today.

Both India and Sri Lanka are brilliant destinations for an adventurous or educational family holiday. In India, explore majestic forts, ride elephants in the mountains, track tigers in the jungle, take rickshaws through bustling cities, wander through markets of exotic fruits and spices, trek in the foothills of the Himalayas, play cricket with the locals, takes trains in the rolling hills of the tea plantations, explore intricately carved temples, stay in palaces, watch the sunset over the Taj Mahal.

In a relatively small space, Sri Lanka offers a huge variety of culture, history, wildlife, scenery and beaches each offering its own mix of activities. Cycle the ancient city of Polonornoruwa. Take a train through the tea plantations. Trek through the Sinharaja rainforest. Go white water rafting through the jungle. Take a walking safari through Horton Plains. Go dolphin or whale spotting off the Galle coast. See turtles laying eggs on the beach. Take a guided tour around Galle Fort. Take nature trails through mountains. Climb Sigiriya rock.

And when you’re done with exploring, both destinations offer you the opportunity to finish with a spot of beachtime.

Planning Family Holidays

There's an art and a bit more of a challenge to designing the perfect family holiday. And we love a holiday challenge! We design each holiday from scratch so our starting point will be the make-up of your family, what you each enjoy, the age of your children and any hobbies or current fascinations. We also love hearing about where you have enjoyed visiting together on past holidays. Using this information we will pull together a trip perfectly tailored to your family with each detail thought through ... leaving you to just focus on the packing!

As well as experience of planning family holidays for our clients, some of the team have extremely well-travelled children who have helped steer the way that we design family holidays! We think the best family holidays are about getting the right mix of activities, sights and relaxation, keeping a close eye on journey times between areas and getting the order spot-on. Unless you have children with a super-keen interest in international culture and history, we also tend to find that mixing-in alternative ideas with being guided around a temple or museum works a treat - for example, cycling tours rather than walking, getting dressed-up in the local attire, a short cookery course in a local house. There's often so much you want to see in a destination but we'd say that travelling with children, more than 5 stops in 2 weeks turns an amazing holiday into a bit of a whinge fest! We tend to suggest saving the relaxing part of a family holiday to the end of the trip and make this the longest stay so that the whole family can just kick-back and relax together and ponder all their new experiences before heading home.
