Ethiopia is a country of incredible and unexploited outdoor adventures. Trekking in the mountains of the Ethiopian highlands is the most common outdoor activity, but mountain biking is more than a valid alternative. Ethiopia has plenty of spectacular landscapes and we’ll help you find the best itinerary that fits your travel style and preferences and that doesn’t skip the rich historical and cultural heritage sites.
If you let us know about your dream trip to Ethiopia, we take care of all the details! The itineraries shown here are just 3 examples which can be customized. They’re not “four cities in seven days” tours, but instead you’ll see new places and explore new cultures in a way which is less stressful for you, more respectful of the locals and easier on the environment. Travelling responsibly is an important concern to us.

Really enjoyed our trip and our experience with the guides was fantastic. The whole experience went smoothly and SimienEcoTours and their guides are a large reason for our ability to immerse ourselves into the Ethiopian natural and cultural environment.
Janet and Jeff, May 2017
Our group of four older men had a terrific trip custom-organized by Marco and his team. Easy to deal with. Prompt. Responsive. Reasonably priced. The company supplied us with a fantastic guide, high-quality gear, tents, and a cook who supplied ample delicious food. I would recommend SimienEcoTours to anyone.

The places were in an itinerary suggested by Marco after evaluating my personal interests. I saw amazing churches with amazing architecture, sat with wild baboons, tried cultural foods and unexpected dancing! This trip was amazing. I would recommend Ethiopia for a unique travel experience and definitely recommend this company.

Bike and Hike the Ethiopian Mountains
This hiking tour looks like a classic historical Northern route. In fact, the trip combines the highlights of Northern Ethiopia including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Lalibela, Gondar and Axum. But it offers much more than this. You’re going to explore extensively the Simien Mountains hiking from the well-known plateaus with amazing views down to its inhabited and less visited lowlands where you’re going to get in touch with the locals
