Gather in the early morning light of Tana, the nation’s capital and head north out of town through the city’s 12 sacred hills.

The cyclists will gather in the early morning light of Tana, the nation’s capital and head north out of town through the city’s 12 sacred hills. The first 3 days will take them through Madagascar’s highlands, the beautiful Ankazobe forest and then a vast empty plateau. Descending into the lowlands, riders will spin towards the Parc National d’Ankarafantsika. This park represents the last strand of dry western deciduous forest in the country and, with its 8 species of lemur, 70 species of reptiles and 130 species of birds, will give the cyclists a taste of Madagascar’s magnificent natural beauty. Another couple days ride takes the cyclists through Mahajanga, home to a 700 year old Baobab tree, and then on to a rest day at Antsanita Beach.

After a day relaxing at the incredible beach get-away of Antsanita, or perhaps exploring the nearby Cirque Rouge, one of the country’s most famous sights, the cyclists will transfer by bus back to the Route National 6 road. From there it is a 2-day pedal along arid landscape until reaching the bustling town of Antsohihy. Another 2 days of cycling takes us through a region famous for cocoa and spice plantations. Arriving in Ankify Harbour, riders will board speed boats for our final journey of the tour, to Nosy Be, a beautiful island paradise. There we will celebrate our experiences in Madagascar, after which you’ll have the time to park your bike decide whether to go diving amongst the area’s plentiful shipwrecks and reefs, snorkel with endangered sea turtles on Nosy Tanikely, or just sit back with a cold beer and enjoy the view.
