Welcome to Algeria, where spectacular Saharan desertscapes and magnificent Roman archaeological sites beckon. Compared to its neighbours like Morocco, Algeria remains effectively undiscovered by tourists, despite its rich history and architecture.

In the north along the Mediterranean coastline, find charming cities like Algiers and Constantine, and well-preserved Roman ruins such as Tipasa and Djemila. Further south, we journey to Djanet and into the heart of the Sahara Desert, where awe-inspiring sand dunes, windswept canyons and ancient rock paintings unveil nature’s raw beauty. Venture into the medieval city of Ghardaia, for a glimpse into Algeria’s most traditional way of life. Join us to uncover the allure and wonder of Algeria!
