Sri Lanka

No country is too far for those who truly crave adventure. Travel Factor is proud to present it's newest BACKPACKING destination: Sri Lanka!

Fly across the Indian Ocean into this gem of an island country and discover the rich adventures that beckon. We'll start off in busy and bustling Colombo, capital of Sri Lanka, and travel to Kandy where limitless tea plantations, heritage structures and the most sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic await you. We'll then travel south to coastal Mirissa where after catching sightings of blue whales and other marine mammals, you'll get to chill out on white, sandy beaches and pure shores. Finally, we'll take the local locomotive into Galle Fort, a romantic and beautiful town resulting from a marriage of Portugese, Dutch and Sri Lankan culture. It's 8 days of backpacking bliss. This is Backpacking Sri Lanka!
