Our aim is to introduce new destinations to travellers in Ethiopia and offer opportunities to experience the beauty of these places while participating in cycling, running and hiking activities. Over the last 12 months we have staged different charity events and spectacular tours for local residents and are now expanding our tours with tours tailor-made for international tourists.
