An Ethiopian Christmas ‘Genna’ & hiking in the Gheralta Mountains adventure
Departing 5th January 2019 this adventure shines the spotlight on the Ethiopian Christmas ‘Genna’ (7th January 2019) the most important religious festival in the second country in the world to become Christian. This adventure gives you the unique opportunity to experience the elaborate and highly stylised rituals and parades alongside the thousands of Ethiopian pilgrims who flock to the 13th Century rock-hewn churches in Lalibela. After this amazing celebration we will travel up to the Gheralta mountains for hiking in stunning rural surroundings. We travel in a small group and our travellers tend to be aged between 30-60 years. We offer a mixture of cultural sightseeing, trekking in picturesque mountains and local festivals. Our hiking takes us right into the very heart of nature, completely away from tourists, at times with only a few local shepherds in sight, or visiting local villages along the way and learning about their culture. Pack your hiking boots and a sense on humour and get ready for awesome adventure like no other!

We love talking about our trips so don't be shy, get in touch!
