Ethiopia: Northern Explorer

This is a great itinerary that visits the very best of the northern historical circuit whilst offering a few hidden treasures as well, many of which are not offered, to our knowledge, by any other UK tour operator. Starting our tour in Addis we will fly to Gonder with its medieval castles and then drive up into the wonderful Simien Mountains.

But it is from Axum that the trip really becomes quite different, as we drive – rather than fly – to the World Heritage town of Lalibela via Yeha, through Eastern Tigray and one of the most visually stunning parts of the whole country, to see some of the most rarely seen rock churches. From Lalibela (which for some is considered to be the 8th wonder of the world) we then undertake an incredibly rewarding village walk, spending 2 nights with local communities in conjunction with the charity TESFA (Tourism in Ethiopia for Sustainable Future Alternatives).

As a fitting climax, we finally arrive in Bahir Dar for a stroll beneath the Blue Nile Falls and a boat ride on Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile.

If you like a bit of nightlife, check out one of the many jazz bars in Addis Ababa.

The cuisine of Ethiopia is underrated, but the coffee as most people know is out of this world.

When visiting the Simien Mountains, take binoculars - they're great for spotting Ibex and Gelada baboons.

Wear slip on shoes - you're not allowed to wear them in the churches so you'll be taking them off a lot.
