Addis Ababa

City of Humans

A sprawling metropolis and home to millions of Ethiopians, Addis Ababa houses many international organizations, embassies, and commissions, making it a diplomatic, political, and economic hub of the country.
Explore hidden gems such as Spas & Wellness and Abyssinia Ballooning. There's much more to do: get outside with Outdoor Activities, take in the spiritual surroundings of Holy Trinity Cathedral, see the interesting displays at Red Terror Martyrs Memorial Museum, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Addis Ababa trip itinerary builder app.

Stockholm, Sweden to Addis Ababa is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time to East Africa Time is 2 hours. When traveling from Stockholm in June, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Addis Ababa: temperatures range from 27°C by day to 15°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to travel to Lalibela.

Lalibela

Lalibela ©
Tourism in Lalibela, a small town nestled in Ethiopia's Lasta Mountains, prospers due to its fascinating cluster of rock-carved churches, dating back to the 12th century and boasting the status of a World Heritage Site.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Climbing Tours and Ethiopian Landscape Tour. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Church of St. George, view the masterpieces at The Fine Art Gallery, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Abune Yosef, and contemplate the long history of Bilbala St. George Rock Hewn Church.

Plan my day in Lalibela using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by flight from Addis Ababa to Lalibela takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. On the 12th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Mek'ele.

Mek'ele

Mek'ele ©
Mek'ele, also transliterated as Makale, Mekelle or Meqele, is the capital city in the northern Tigray Region of Ethiopia. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dallol Ethiopia Tours and Emperor Yohannes IV Palace. Step out of Mek'ele with an excursion to Wukro Museum in Wukro--about 50 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Assale and appreciate the history behind Martyr's Memorial Monument.

You can drive from Lalibela to Mek'ele in 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and car. In June, daily temperatures in Mek'ele can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Axum.

Axum

Axum ©
Axum or Aksum is a city in the northern part of Ethiopia. Step off the beaten path and head to Queen of Sheba's Bath and Chapel of the Tablet. There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Obelisk of Axum, steep yourself in history at Tombs of Kings Kaleb and Gebre Meskal, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Arabtu Ensessa Church, and get engrossed in the history at Archeological Museum.

To find ratings, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Axum trip itinerary planner.

Drive from Mek'ele to Axum in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel to Bahir Dar.

There's still lots to do: see Bona Fide Ethiopia Tours, make a trip to Monastery of Debre Mariam, take in the dramatic scenery at Blue Nile Falls, and look for gifts at Ura Kidane Mihret.
