Code: PET 448- Biking Northern Ethiopia- Simien Mountains
Duration: 13 days/ 12 nights
Transport: Surface

Highlight: Ethiopia contains the biggest range of mountains in Africa, unspoilt, almost untouched, and perfect for mountain bike exploration. This is one of many surprises in store when you visit Ethiopia. This is a land full of new experiences and the warmth of the welcome you receive will make you want to discover more of them.
We ride over alpine passes, volcanic areas, rolling tundra, the deepest jungle, forested areas and sometime even tarmac. We visit local villages, monasteries, flora and fauna and places of historical note on our specifically designed routes.
