About this tour

In the northeast of Ethiopia is the little-visited Tigrai region. Over the centuries, churches of differing sizes and architectural styles were carved into cliff faces and rocky outcrops, many still in use today. While following the classic northern circuit through the monasteries of Lake Tana, castles of Gondar, Simien Mountains, and monolithic churches of Lalibela, we get off the beaten path and explore this beautiful region in the heart of Ethiopian history.
