6 days


This tour is your introduction to Africa's largest country and one of the most exciting countries in Northern Africa. Algeria, which has previously been difficult to travel to is now open for exploring! Our winter tour will take you through the French and Ottoman-inspired streets of Algiers, across the epic bridges of Constantine, and through the historical Roman ruins of Tipaza and Timgad. Of course, no trip to Algeria would be complete without a visit to the Sahara, so we will venture right down south to Tamanrasset which is in the heartland of the Tuareg peoples.
