Starting from and returning to Tripoli, this is one of our most fantastic and enriching tours.
Ghadames, an ancient trading post, close to the borders of Tunisia and Algeria, and known as the “Pearl of the Sahara” may be one the most impressive ancient cities to be found anywhere in the Sahara. Known as “The Pearl of the Sahara”, and another UNESCO World Heritage site, this is one of the most remarkable surviving ancient cities of the Sahara. While the city of Ghadames is still thriving, the ancient town is now mostly deserted, and you can explore its labyrinthine, covered whitewashed streets and imagine the time when it was once one of the major trading centers of the northern Sahara. It is highly recommended that anyone visiting Libya for the first time includes Ghadames as part of their travel plans.
To reach Ghadames, we travel through the Berber homeland, where Berber culture and language still thrive. We will visit ancient towns, some abandoned, some occupied, and cross the Nafusa Mountains, one of the most scenic areas in Libya.
