Architecture in Massawa, Eritrea

Eritrea Holidays

Isolated and secretive, Eritrea is Ethiopia’s forgotten neighbour. Once synonymous with conflict, the country has now been peaceful for almost two decades. In spite of this, few tourists ever venture inside. And what a pity, for if they did, they would be greeted by volcanic landscapes, remarkable culture and an idyllic coastline.

Eritrea is a country where tourism is very much in its infancy. Therefore, we are not currently offering tailor-made trips.

However, we are planning a pioneering group tour, exploring the country in the company of one of our team members, in 2018. Register your interest here and we will be in touch once the itinerary is finalised.

A Little More About Eritrea

Undoubtedly challenging and with its tourist industry barely classified as nascent, Eritrea is a place only suitable for those who are happy to tolerate the frustrations of exploring a young country, still firmly in the grasp of authoritarianism.

However, it is also home to a remarkable array of sights. Asmara, its capital, is still littered with Italian colonial architecture – the result of Mussolini’s desire to make it the centre of a second Roman Empire.

Away from the city, the country’s dramatic highlands mirror those of Ethiopia to the south, rich with towering escarpments and rocky peaks. And its Red Sea coastline – spectacular and deserted – incorporates the Dahlak Archipelago, with its uninhabited islands and pristine coral reefs.
