With nine tenths covered in desert, Libya is the fourth largest country in Africa and is a treasure trove of wonders. From the vast Ubari sand sea to the Roman ruins at Leptis Magna, the country is ideal for the adventuring type looking for an off-the-beaten track kind of trip.

There’s a variety of activities on offer, and this trip covers them all; if you’re a history buff, the Roman ruins and preserved prehistoric rock art will be right up your alley. For those of us that like natural wonders the chance to sleep in the desert and swim in the Gabraoun lakes is an unmissable opportunity. If culture’s your thing, you will be immersed in it with journeys to historic Libyan market towns and an excursion to a large bazaar.The trips are all guided by exceptional travel guides who orchestrate the week brilliantly, and the accommodation is a mix of hotels and camping.
This is a breath-taking adventure that takes you seriously off the beaten track. The tour is well organised and with a maximum group size of 12, you will be able to explore the sights at a pace you feel comfortable with, rather than being shunted around like sheep.
