9 day Trekking Route in Simien Mountains and Lalibela

  Group of 6 friends looking to visit Ethiopia in January 2018

“I am interested in the 9 day Trekking Route in Simien Mountains and Lalibela as described, but lengthening it by two days to include Bahir Dar, the falls visit and Lake Tana as described in 'The Northern Historical Route by Plane and Car - 10-day itinerary'.

We are two Canadian couples over 60 who enjoy walking/hiking and one other younger couple from the Seychelles. There may be more couples interested once I have an idea of costs.

Please provide a quote and detailed itinerary of what this would look like, including accommodation.

Thank you”
