Mountain Biking Adventure in Simien Mountains National Park
From the old imperial city of Gondar, you set off for a mountain biking adventure in the Simien National Park, probably one of the most spectacular sceneries in the country. Bike along lonely gravel roads with magnificent views. Some climbs are followed by endless descents that wind down into the valleys. The iconic blood-breasted baboons romp along the slopes and in the bushes, klipspringer antelopes emerge from the thicket.
Accompanied by one of our experienced SimienEcoTours mountain biking guides (English & German available) you go on this adventure. Your trip starts in Gondar from where you climb steadily towards the national park. The first night is at the beautiful Kossoye escarpment before you actually enter the park for two bike days in the wild nature of Simiens.
Due to the altitude between 2,800 and almost 4,000 meters, the tour is designed in a way that you have an escort vehicle so that you can manage climbs in your vehicle and enjoy the descents. Overnight stays will take place in lodges and hotels, and one night in a tent inside the national park. Maybe you don’t want to do it too basic? Lodge upgrades are available in some destinations for special rates. Ask our Travel Experts.
