If you love the outdoors, no worries during your visit to incredible Rwanda. Here is a set of activities that you can do while enjoying your stay in incredible Rwanda.

Cycling

Our land of a thousand hills is an excellent destination for off-the-beaten-track cycling, with almost endless trails and roads criss-crossing the territory. Exploring Rwanda’s countryside on a bike is an authentic and rewarding way to interact with the rural population, with a huge dose of natural beauty.

Kayaking

Exploring the coastline of Lake Kivu by kayak is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the scenery, gazing up at the mountainous backdrop from the tranquility of the water.

Hiking

Rwanda’s epic scenery, pleasant climate and magnificent wildlife make the land a remarkable place to explore on foot. The best hiking to be had is in the western half of the country, all the way from Volcanoes National Park in the north, along the fringes of Lake Kivu in the west and down to Nyungwe National Park in the south.

Canopy Walkway

Suspended above a ravine in the lush montane rainforest of Nyungwe National Park, the canopy walkway provides an exhilarating perspective on the ancient treetops and wildlife.

Paramotor

A new sport in Rwanda. Visitors will be able to fly above the historic Huye district, the lakeside towns of Rubavu and Karongi, and the mountain rainforests of Nyungwe National Park. The Rwanda Flying Club offers tandem flights as well as flying courses.
