According to a Tuareg saying, “God created the desert so that men could find their souls there.”
A Saharan dream par excellence, the Algerian south has everything to fascinate even the most experienced traveler, among spectacular sand dunes and sandstone towers eroded in bizarre and spectacular shapes.
An unusual Sahara, of mountains eroded and sedimented over millennia, lava flows and basalt cliffs that nature has moulded into veritable works of art. Discovering Father Foucauld’s Hermitage in the Hoggar Mountains, the volcanic region on which the Assekrem plateau, ‘the end of the world’ in the Tamacheq language, stands out. From the sleepy towns of Tamanrasset and Djanet, to the Tadart Akakus, where you can admire the ‘fairy chimneys’ of Moul N’Aga, the red dunes of Tin Merzouga and the exceptional rock paintings and engravings hidden in the ravines of the rocky gorges of the Oued of In Djaren. An itinerary suspended in time that will provide unforgettable emotions.
