Start and end in Arusha, the tour "Kilimanjaro - Remote Northern Circuit" is a guided trekking tour that takes 11 days. You will travel through Millenium Camp, Arusha, Lemosho Big Tree Camp and 6 other destinations in Tanzania. "Kilimanjaro - Remote Northern Circuit" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A beautiful and challenging route to summit the highest mountain in Africa on the full moon. Climbing the highest mountain in Africa on the Northern Circuit route is a draw card for any avid trekker, but especially with a full moon summit! Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m), fondly known as Kili, being a free-standing mountain commands panoramic views of the surrounding plains. Having nine days to acclimatise and encountering limited numbers of fellow trekkers, this route is truly remote and one for the trekking enthusiast. Commencing from the western side, catch a glimpse of Mt Meru floating on the clouds from the Shira Plateau before traversing the less visited northern flanks to enjoy fabulous vistas across vast Kenyan lowlands. Then, approaching the summit from the east in the light of the full moon, experience the tremendous feeling of space generated before standing on the top of Africa. Finally, a descent to the south completes an almost-circumnavigation of the mountain. This less-visited northern route provides opportunity for a truly remarkable adventure to the top of Kilimanjaro.

“The Northern Circuit was a fantastic trip which I chose primarily as it gave me plenty of time to acclimatise. The service and food were awesome and the staff amazing. I successfully summited which was a bonus, and overall I would thoroughly recommend this trip!”

“I was very impressed with your policy of using a company that employs women. Out of the 12 support staff 4 were women (3 porters and 1 cook). It is not 6 which would have been half but it was a good start. Out of all the groups doing the trek my group had the most women and I only saw one other group that had 1 woman in the support staff. All the groups were overwhelmingly male porters, cooks, guides. Well done on this policy and keep up the good work.”
