What you'll do

Join us in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia and once the heart of Africa’s Roman Empire, as we journey into the Sahara desert and back. We'll loop through a myriad of unique landscapes, wander through winding medinas, relax by ancient oases, and cross a multicolored salt lake. Along the way, we'll explore relics of the many civilizations that once called this land home—from the ruins of Carthage to the remains of Roman amphitheaters. Bounded by endless desert sands and crisp Mediterranean waters, Tunisia’s architecture, culture, and cuisine are as diverse and dynamic as its millenia-old history. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Tunis are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
