Algerian Colours

Algeria is one of the most fascinating countries in North Africa, combining a cultural legacy that stretches back millennia along with some of the world’s most dramatic desert scenery. Once colonised by the Romans, the Turks and the French, the country has now emerged from a civil war to reveal itself as a destination of unrivalled scope and grandeur.

Among the vast sands of the Sahara it is home to some of the most beguiling oasis towns in the region; dominated by ancient Ksars or fortified strongholds, the mud brick villages still hold on to traditions that have endured among the desert sands for centuries. It can also boast a number of World Heritage sites, the spectacular ancient site of Djemila and the old Roman port of Tipaza, while its bustling capital, Algiers, offers the traditional Casbah counterbalanced by a wonderfully engaging mix of Ottoman grandeur, colonial chic and modern vibrancy.

This remarkable journey takes us deep into the heart of this unique country, both literally and spiritually, as we journey from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Grand Erg Occidental.

Highlights:

  • Explore the traditional Casbah in Algiers
  • Visit the Roman UNESCO heritage sites of Djemila and Tipaza
  • Stroll around Constantine, the picturesque ‘City of Bridges’
  • Explore the Timimoun region in the Sahara desert
  • Journey around the mighty Grand Erg Occidental and marvel at the beautiful oasis towns of Taghit and Beni Abbes
