It’s easy to feel energised when you’re surrounded by breathtaking wildlife, vibrant North African culture and enchanting ancient heritage. It’s even easier when you have clear blue skies, beating sun and perfect Mediterranean weather on your side. A brilliant balance of exotic adventure and unadulterated relaxation, Tunisia is elegant, inspiring and full of incredible secrets. From its miles of lush, wildlife-packed national parks and mountains to the picturesque rolling dunes of the Sahara Desert, the
country is a playground for active adventures and the perfect place for inquistive explorers.
Starting in the incredibly beautiful southern stretch of the country, you’ll find the perfect place to get a taste of the vibrant Tunisian culture and explore the vast open country at the gateway to the Sahara.
After wandering the bustling souks and dining on local bites in the city of Douz, you can take an epic 60-mile camel trek into the desert, stopping only to search for addexes, rare birds and pitch camp romantically beneath the stars. Of course, if you’re after something a little more adrenaline-fuelled and high-flying you can wheel a quad bike or 4×4 around the fringes of the Sahara, or even take in the most exciting rolling dunes in North Africa from the comfort of a hot air balloon hundreds of feet in the air. Back up north, there’s far more to see than just the beautiful ruins of Carthage and El Djem or the country’s bustling capital, Tunis.
Exploring beyond these enchanting sites of ancient heritage in the country’s famous northeast, intrepid travellers will delight in jaw-dropping panoramic views from the top of the Kroumirie mountains, setting sights on vast species of majestic fauna as they climb. Meanwhile, cyclists of all abilities will relish the opportunity to take a spin on secluded, stunning and dependable cycle routes out of the major cities into the tranquil countryside and the eastern foothills of the Atlas mountains.
Tucked among these rolling hills and the lush Ichkeul National Park further afield, you’ll be able to take in some of the world’s most incredible bird-life – from wild flamingos and rare forest dwellers to the 300,000 migrants that nest around the national park’s tranquil lakes and flora-filled valleys each year. From the vibrant, buzzing towns that sit at the edge of the Sahara to the majestic mountain summits in the temperate northwest, everywhere in Tunisia is an inspiring adventure, and one that’s just waiting to be discovered.
