The "Cycle Madagascar " tour starts and ends in Antananarivo. It is a bicycle trip that takes 13 days taking you through Ambalavaro, Antananarivo, Zazafotsy and 8 other destinations in Madagascar. "Cycle Madagascar " is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world, offers a cycling adventure like no other. We journey on largely quiet roads through a landscape of dramatic highland plains, unique rock formations and natural swimming pools. We pause to visit the lush chain of rainforest in the Ranomafana National Park with deep canyons and huge waterfalls. Apart from its natural treasures the nation is also rich in culture and the many ethnic groups with fascinating traditions contribute to the melting-pot that is Madagascar. Our cycling is rewarded by a day to relax on the idyllic white sand beach of Ifaty on the coast, scattered with palms and protected by an offshore coral reef.

Wonderful Cycle Trip
“Fantastic trip to fascinating but very poor country.Quite hilly cycling but well supported with regular stops for refreshments such as fresh pineapple and papaya.Lovely people with friendly children always running up in rural villages to see you”

Madagascar on two wheels
“Cycling on this trip is still the best way to explore Madagascar in just two weeks. The ever changing scenery from day to day and the terrain just made this trip one of the best, add in an excellent tour guide and support team, nothing was to much for any of them.”

Cycle Madagascar
“Absolutely loved it.My only criticism being that I felt like we should have set the bikes up on the evening of our first get-together. We spent a lot of time fussing with bikes on the first morning.That way we could have got away earlier on Day 1. We could have got out of the city earlier and quicker, had more time watching the Dancing Limas at the Reserve and not been biking so long in the hot sun.Also, the trip to Ramofama was unpleasant - too many tourists all there at the same time and scrabbling through and breaking the native forest. We saw very little in the way of Limas - saw many more further on in the trip.The evening event was great so you would really only need to stay there one day.”
