Northern Sri Lanka

Enjoying the culture in Jaffna

Head off the beaten track and experience authentic Sri Lanka

A little visited area perfect for those who want to experience something a little different, with lots of local interaction, remote islands and wildlife.

You won’t see many other tourists up in the northern part of Sri Lanka. The long war meant that until recently the region was mostly off-limits and it's only just emerging as a top place to visit. All the more reason to visit now! The culture here is strongly influenced by Tamil India, and while there are fewer stand-alone sites to see compared with the rest of the country, all the little things here add up to offer an amazing experience of the real Sri Lanka. Expect a lot of interaction with the locals, and every now and then a guy appearing from nowhere to rustle up a tasty lunch for you.

Make sure you stay in the Fox Jaffna hotel, an incredible place with a unique history. Nearby Delft Island makes an interesting day out – somewhere that makes up for its lack of roads with a population of wild horses left here by Dutch colonisers. Swim with sharks and sea turtles at Pigeon Island, or sail out to sea for a spot of whale-watching.

Northern Sri Lanka is a great option for returning visitors who want to experience something completely different.
