Cinnamon Nature Trails Redefines Urban Adventure with Ecotourism Expansion in Colombo

Cinnamon Nature Trails, the wildlife and nature-based tourism arm of Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts, unveils its eco-excursion expertise in the heart of Colombo to introduce the true essence of the destination. A collection of five carefully crafted experiences by in-house naturalists aims to unveil the city’s natural diversity and marvels while championing sustainable tourism practices.

Cinnamon Nature Trails brings years of experience in the field, collaborating with prestigious production organisations such as BBC Natural History Productions, Nat Geo Wild, and most recently with BBC Studios for BBC Planet Earth 3 for wildlife documentaries. This expansion into Colombo signifies a milestone in redefining Colombo’s identity from a transit point to a vibrant exploration hub. Chitral Jayatilake, Vice President of Cinnamon Nature Trails, commented, “We are truly grateful to bring our expertise in enriching the Colombo experience to the bustling metropolis of Colombo. Through our carefully crafted excursions, we aim to redefine urban adventure, inviting travellers closer to our natural habitats in and around Colombo, allowing them to admire and appreciate the beauty and charms of our surroundings in Colombo.”

“We are excited to launch these hand-picked curated excursions that promise an unforgettable experience through the heart of Colombo, from vibrant markets to serene nature reserves. Whether a guest or a traveller is on a historical exploration, unveiling the city’s diversity or discovering off the beaten path, these unique experiences will showcase the essence of Colombo than a mere transit destination. With tourism on the rise and much of the international travellers craving for new experiences, these curated experiences will not only elevate guest stays but will also support in positioning Colombo as a destination that has so much more to offer for a traveller – and through the eyes of our in-house team of naturalists.” comments Area Vice President of Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts for Colombo Hotels, Kamal Munasinghe.
