2012 marks the beginning of Atypique Lanka, a travel agency created by Chamika . He grew up in France and returned to Sri Lanka, his native country, 30 years later. After a career in international trade in France and later in the Middle East, Chamika had a strong desire to set up a project in his own country.
In 2013, Marjorie , a French national with a passion for life elsewhere, joined him in this adventure. After higher studies in Paris as well as in Australia, and numerous trips in Asia, she finally decided to settle down in Colombo. Sustainable development and International solidarity has always been priorities led by her heart.
The key concept of Atypique Lanka is to make you discover the Sri Lankan island in an atypical way, through unique and playful experiences, adventures off the beaten tracks but above all, moments of sharing with the local population.
Seven years later and rich with a strong expertise, Chamika and Marjorie decided to develop and embark on a new adventure. It is in Vietnam, specifically in Hanoi that Anais, manager at Atypique Lanka for the past two years, set her luggages down and took up the challenge of opening Atypique Vietnam. Anais, imbued with the “Atypique” spirit, knows exactly how to create bespoke trips and make you discover authentic Vietnam.
In 2020, Atypique Voyages was launched, merging together Atypique Lanka and Atypique Vietnam. We also offer stopovers in the Emirates and getaways to the Maldives. A new name but always the same actors and same objective dedicated to make you discover a country differently thanks to authentic experiences and human encounters that will leave you with precious memories.
In parallel, Marjorie and Chamika launched Atypique foundation, a project that has been close to their hearts for a long time. The aim of the foundation is to support important causes such as women emancipation or the protection of nature
Atypique Voyages aim to promote another way of travelling while respecting people, their culture and the environment. Our goal now is to further develop eco-volunteering experiences and solidarity tourism.
