  • Enchanted by the beauty of the places you forget the fatigue. Rocks, dunes, Tuareg, starry skies. A continual discovery.

  • Majestic and breathtaking as the Libyan one differentiates for a greater presence of mountain peaks including the famous massif of the Hoggar protected Unesco site and ancient kingdom of the mythical queen of Tuaregh Tin Hinan which is its heart. Reaching the viSe that Libyan is the hardest and inhospitable Sahara, the Algerian one is not less. The oasis of Tammarasset, and staying at least two days is an experience to try not to look for the adventure, now outdated, but to understand what and what is life in the Sahara to be able to fully appreciate its pure primordial environment of great Spectacularity made of faraglion and peaks of sandstone and dark rocks with Straodinarian forms. A Dispesionate council to choose preferably official local operators not to take the risk that the journey with guides or experts of Western desert is reduced to mere runs in 4x4 on the genus Paris Dakar between a rock site and the other to follow the program And avoid complaining about re-entry, or eating spaghetti and polenta at bivouacs to meet the ridiculous needs of pseudo tourists. I tried one it was enough. Sic EST and is often so. The official guides know much better hurry up with the unexpected and reconcile the Times and the tracks species in case of Gruupps not homoegenei for age and physical capacity as well as an insuperable knowledge. Equally advisable to reach Tamanrasset with the plane you gain time and effort. Moreover, the richest and most known sites like Jabbaren, Abalessa, the circuit dell'asekrem, a must, are all coming to Tam in a radius of 80 km on average. Date entered to post there have been several times.
