Algerian Colours

Overview:

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, such as 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 as we journey from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Grand Erg Occidental.

Highlights:

  • Discover the Roman ruins of Djemila and Tupiza, both UNESCO World Heritage sites
  • Venture into the Sahara Desert and visit the Sahara museum in Beni Abbes
  • Explore the ‘red city’ of Timimoun and the abandoned village of Tindjillet in the Sahara Desert
  • See the Casbah in Algiers and the whitewashed colonial architecture of Oran
  • Journey around the Grand Erg Occidental and stay at the beautiful oasis town of Taghit
  • Stroll around Constantine, the picturesque yet dramatic ‘City of Bridges’

  • Full services of a Tour Leader with local guides and drivers
