Madagascar: Northern Tour – Classic

With this tour, you will discover the Northern part of Madagascar.  Highlights include Diego Suarez (Antsiranana in Malagay) and Nosy Be Island.

Diego Suarez : This coastal town is firmly anchored in this huge bay. With the influence of Middle East and the former occupations of French and English marine troops, Diego Suarez has an unique History. Its cultural wealth is still visible thanks to the inhabitants, keeping some traditions alive. The “Antakarana”, inhabitants from the North, are known for their legendary hospitality.

Nosy Be Island: Nosy Be is also known as the “Island of scents”. Indeed the island is full of Ylang Ylang, Vanilla, pepper or coffee plants.  Nosy Be Island is one of the most popular tourism destination in Madagascar. It is a very beautiful island with luxurious vegetation, tourists go there to visit Nosy Iranja, Hell Ville, or Mount Passot. It is also the place where you can relax in very good-quality accommodations.  Nosy Be is also the starting point for cruises sailing to the surrounding fabulous archipelagos: Radama in the south and Mitsio in the North. Last but not least, Nosy Be will also delight water sports lovers: cruising, diving, kite surfing, sport fishing… A must do you don’t want to miss: snorkelling in Nosy Tanikely. This protected marine area is a real “open-air” aquarium. With your head only a few centimeters under the sea level, you can already see sea turtles swimming!
