Many of our clients are interested in doing additional excursions before or after their cycling tour.
We have good contacts with hotels, drivers, guides and other agents in Ethiopia and will be happy to design an extended itinerary for you and make arrangements for your entire stay in Ethiopia.
There are three other places in the north of Ethiopia that we particularly recommend as add-on trips that can be easily combined with your cycling tour:
Lalibela, Ethiopia’s most famous place of pilgrimage, houses eleven rock-hewn churches built between the seventh and thirteenth centuries and traditionally dated to the great 12th-century Zagwe King Lalibela. The easiest way of travelling to Lalibela after your cycling is either by plane from Axum or on an 8-hour journey by car from Mekelle. If you like hiking, there are some nice day trips to churches in the surrounding area and we can also arrange for you to do an extended walking holiday in the Lasta Mountains.
