Vancouver, B.C. – For many people, starting the new year off right demands more than just champagne and noisemakers. For those looking to ring in 2010 by doing something spectacular, BikeHike Adventures is offering a special adventure trip of a lifetime. Adventure travellers searching for a special trip to start off 2010 can start off the new year atop Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak on New Year’s Day.

This 7-day Kilimanjaro climb along the Lemosho Route includes an African Safari into the Serengeti plains, Ngorongoro Crater and a bike ride through tribal Masaai villages. There’s also an option to hot air balloon over the Serengeti on the trip. At midnight on New Year’s Eve, the small group will gear up with headlights and warm clothing and trek from Barafu, the last high campsite, to Uhuru Peak, Kilimanjaro’s summit at 19,340 feet/5,896 metres. The goal is to reach the peak by sunrise on January 1, 2010 and usher in the new decade.

This special departure is from December 25 – January 8. The land cost is $4,199 USD starting from Arusha, Tanzania. The trip includes all internal transportation, accommodation (shared twin), most meals, and all equipment (camping gear, bicycles, veteran guides, porters and cooks).
