Hiker's trail

From 1 407$ per person, for 4 persons

Level: Expert

Difficulty:

The "Randonneurs" stay, as its name suggests, will make you discover the diversity of Djibouti, in particular thanks to 3 hikes in Arta and in the Goda mountains. This circuit will also allow you to relax and discover the most important places of Djibouti, such as the Assal and Abbé lakes, and the town of Obock.

This route is ideal if you are close to nature and wish to discover places that are only accessible by hiking.

You should therefore bring a pair of walking shoes.
