Northeast Adventure

The highest peaks, trekking and vanilla fields

Tour description

Un itinerario inedito, lontano dai percorsi più turistici, alla scoperta del Madagascar del nord, tra panorami unici e un’ineguagliabile natura incontaminata.

Il nostro viaggio ci vedrà attraversare la parte più settentrionale dell’isola. facendo trekking tra le foreste pluviali, scalando le vette malgasce più alte e camminando sospesi sugli Tsingy (le caratteristiche rocce calcaree appuntite, alte centinaia di metri). Non mancheranno incontri ravvicinati con gli animali esotici che abitano questi luoghi, passeggiando alla ricerca di lemuri e camaleonti.

L’avventura si concluderà sulle spiagge bianchissime di Nosy Be, dove potremo rilassarci facendo snorkeling nel mare cristallino e prendendo il sole in un vero paradiso terrestre.

Itinerary

DAY 1 - Towards Antananarivo and beyond

Your Journey beyond the ends of the Earth starts from Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, with its incredible multitude of treasures to discover. The chaos of the city might hit you, but don’t worry! Upon your arrival at IVATO airport we will be there to welcome you to accompany you to the hotel, a relaxing location surrounded by greenery.

Accommodation at: Au Bois Vert or similar  

DAY 2 - Trekking in the Marojejy National Park

We will leave at dawn with an internal flight to Sambava: here we will find our guide and the 4 × 4 driver waiting for us with whom we will head to the Marojejy National Park. And here in the Park we will begin our adventure: a 3-day trek (Sommet circuit) with an overnight stay in a refuge. It will be an unmissable opportunity to discover part of the island’s biodiversity, including flora and fauna characteristic of this humid and wild region. Ferns, palms, birds, lemurs, amphibians and reptiles of all kinds will frame our trekking.

Accommodation in a refuge inside the park 

DAY 3 - On the Marojejy massif

We will therefore also spend our second day exploring the Marojejy National Park: this priceless heritage of biodiversity is part of the Atsinanana Rainforest complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

At the height of the adventure, we will try to touch the highest peak in Madagascar, the Marojejy massif, reached for the first time in 1948 by the French naturalist Jean-Henri Humbert.

Accommodation in a refuge inside the park 

DAY 4 - On the highest peak in Madagascar

We will reach the summit of the Marojejy massif at the dawn of our third day of trekking. We will then have the opportunity to admire a breathtaking view from the highest peak of the island.

We will then return to the entrance of the Park where we will find the driver waiting for us with the 4 × 4 that, in the afternoon, will take us to the urban municipality of Vohemar.

Accommodation at: Hotel Baie D’Iharana or similar  

DAY 5 - In the Tsingy park

We will leave early in the morning heading west, along a track that is still little traveled, towards Ambilobe. We will then continue on our path until we reach Mahamasina, where the wonderful Tsingy park of Ankarana opens up. Located about 100 km southwest of Diego Suarez, the area is known for its limestone pinnacles of karst origin, which are distinguished between Petit Tsingy and Grand Tsingy. Inside the park we will also have the opportunity to admire six species of lemurs, different types of rare mammals, including the circled-tailed mongoose, 83 species of birds and anchor geckos, chameleons and crocodiles.

Accommodation at: Ankarana Lodge or similar  

DAY 6 - Between Tsingy and mysterious caves

An adventurous day, completely dedicated to trekking among the Tsingy of the Ankarana reserve. We will have the opportunity to explore an incredibly rich and exciting natural area, among expanses of limestone pinnacles surrounded by patches of forest. In addition to the Tsingy, we will be able to explore the numerous canyons and caves that surround them, surrounded by popular legends and mysteries.

In the caves of the reserve we will also be able to admire 14 of the 33 species of bats that live in Madagascar, not to mention the 3 more than 10 species of lemurs and 90 species of habitat birds, including the pygmy kingfisher, the ibis and the fish eagle.

Accommodation at: Ankarana Lodge or similar  

DAY 7 - A cocktail on the beach of Nosy Be

Departure to the coast in the early morning aboard the 4 × 4: once in Ankify, we will embark on a motorboat towards the island of Nosy Be. To welcome us, we will find the staff of our hotel with a tasty welcome cocktail to be enjoyed on one of the most famous beaches in Madagascar.

Accommodation at: Au Belvedere or similar  

DAY 8-9 - The other face of Nosy Be

Nosy Be is the symbol of Madagascar, with its transparent sea, white beaches, rainforest, turtles and lemurs. An island that is, at the same time, an earthly paradise, for its inestimable heritage of biodiversity, and one of the most popular destinations for tourists. But our vision of Nosy Be is different, far from the typical itineraries of mass tourism, following unusual and exciting routes. With this trip you will discover the truest and wildest part of these places and you will get excited while enjoying its wonders. An unforgettable experience that you will carry with you forever.

Accommodation at: Au Belvedere or similar  

DAY 10 - Return home

On the last day of our trip to Madagascar we will visit Nosy Be, savoring its colors and scents. Upon boarding, we will be transferred to Ivato airport and from the window we will greet these places that will inexorably become part of us.
