Rugby Tours to Sri Lanka: The Island
Stunning is the only word to use when describing Sri Lanka and touring teams will get to enjoy some exotic beaches as well as stunning mountain scenery. The options to enjoy this beautiful island seem endless, the National Parks are magnificent and are amongst the best places in Asia to see wildlife. To say that these visits are larger than life just do not describe the interaction with elephants, leopards, monkey’s and a whole host of other species that inhabit this region. Then again there are the majestic tea plantations that are a must… and then there is the surfing or the temples the list goes on.
Rugby Tours to Sri Lanka: The Season
The main rugby season in Sri Lanka is from May until the end of September but its temperate climate means that it is still possible to tour outside of these dates should you wish. Average temperatures during July and August are around 30 degrees – Enjoy!
Sri Lanka is a sporting paradise so if you would like to combine tours and include other sports then there are plenty of opportunities for hockey, netball and football and of course cricket.
