Helpful Information

This trip has been designed for those who are passionate about plant-based living. We have incorporated what we think are the most interesting, ethical, local and fun activities for you to experience the rich culture of this incredible island.

With this in mind, we would like to share with you some of the challenges we face while working locally with our Sri Lankan crew of hosts, guides, driver, cooks, yogis and surf teachers.

While we go out of our way by briefing everyone to ensure that everything is as plant-based as possible we don’t run our own property (inline with our local and ethical approach to business), so can’t be in full control of every detail all of the time.

We hope you understand and look forward to hosting you.
