Capitalising on the success of its first stand-alone Sri Lanka brochure, Expressions Holidays has launched a new Sri Lanka brochure for next year, including the north and north-east of the country, which have been, until recently, off limits to tourism as a result of the civil war.

A new seven-night  North and North East Sri Lanka touring itinerary visits the lesser explored north to uncover the heritage of Jaffna, the coastlines of the north-east and natural harbour of Trincomalee. Clients will be accompanied throughout by a private specialist chauffeur-guide, and highlights include the islands of Nagadeepa and Delft, reached by ferry from Jaffna, and a boat trip to Pigeon Island from ‘Trinco’, named after the large numbers of blue rock pigeons that breed there. Prices lead in at £1,920 per person.

To complement the tour, a small, hand-picked selection of hotels on the beaches of the north include Jungle Beach and Nilaveli Beach Hotel near Trincomalee and the  Maalu Maalu Resort & Spa at Passikudah Bay.
Clients booking a holiday to Sri Lanka of 12 paid nights or more can receive a reduction of £300 when booking by December 31, valid for travel until December 31, 2013.
