Algeria Enduro Motorcycle Tour

Desert Soul Adventures is proud to announce this guided enduro motorbike desert off-road tour in Algeria! The country has been, for the last decades, unfortunately, infamous for its security issues in certain parts of its territory. The logical consequence was that certain areas suffered travel restrictions for foreigners and it has become almost impossible to even enter this vast and charming country and ride on a motorbike around. But the security has improved over the last years and the authorities have turned on a green light for tourism again, guaranteeing your safety. And so, organized guided and supported enduro dirt bike motorcycle tours are possible again in Algeria!

Program

Desert Soul Adventure's Enduro motorbike tour will start and end in the town of Djanet in south-eastern Algeria and cover the area of the amazing Tadrart Rouge, which is the Algerian extension of the famous Libyan Akakus Mountains, and the Tassili n'Ajjer National Park.

Along the approximately 700 kilometers, ridden across eight days on the motorcycle, enjoy some superb desert sand riding and be amazed by the incredible beauty of the rock formations that meet sky-high dunes of mostly yellow and red color!

Day 1: Arrival to Djanet

You will be met by Desert Soul Adventures at the airport in Djanet and brought to the hotel. After accommodating in the hotel and relaxing with a drink or two, a motorbike tour briefing with your guide and the local guide will take place. The bikes rental documentation will be sorted out on that occasion as well and rental bikes will be handed over. Time permitting, ride downtown and get a feel of this part of the world. Dinner and overnight will be in the hotel.

Day 2: Djanet - El Berdj

In the morning, you will really start the enduro motorcycle desert tour and leave “civilization” by driving to the desert. You will already see the first rock engravings on this day. Stop your motorbikes for lunch at a beautiful spot in the desert and later continue on towards the gorge of El Berdj which will be reached in the afternoon.

The camp will be set up at this magical place, surrounded by rock paintings and engravings. The local cook will prepare you your first desert dinner here and he'll keep doing it until you finish your supported desert enduro tour in the Tassili n'Ajjer area of Algeria.

Day 3: El Berdj - Wan Taberkat - Moulanaga

This day will be your grand entry into the world of impressively high and soft dunes. After a good day on the motorbikes, in the late afternoon, set your bivouac at the foot of the famous Moulanaga dune.

Day 4: Moulanaga - Tamzdiga - Bouhdian - Tin Merzouga

After seeing some more rock engravings and rock paintings, the color of the sand surrounding you will turn from yellow to red and you’ll ride between pink dunes and rock carvings. In the afternoon, you’ll reach the beautiful red dunes of Tin Merzouga some of which climb up to 600 meters high. The Algerian enduro tour will settle for the night right here.

Day 5: Tin Merzouga - In Tihaq

After breakfast, prepared by your local cook, head into another part of Tin Merzouga sand dunes and try to reach its highest peaks. Afterward, crossing the Wadi Indjaren with its rock paintings and engravings will impress you again. Set up camp surrounded by the beautiful landscape of In Tihaq sand dunes. The motorbikes will probably have to be serviced after this tour day, if not before.

Day 6: In Tihaq - Adjlati - Tigharghrt

The guided enduro tour in Algeria will turn the loop back towards Djanet on this day, to visit the black sand dunes of Adjlati and see a rock, shaped like an elephant. Stop for lunch at Tigharghart and visit the beautiful engraving of a "Crying Cow", dating back to 8000 BC.

Day 7: Tigharghrt - Djanet - Adaik

You will reach Djanet in the morning, take a shower, and prepare for the next part of your trip. The next desert bivouac on your Tassili n'Ajjer enduro tour in Algeria will be set in the middle of the incredible Adaik stone forest, famous for its beautiful sunsets.

Day 8: Adaik - Tikobawin - Essendilene - Erg Admer

Start your ride in Adaik and end in Erg Admer where you'll spend the night.

Day 9: Erg Admer - Djanet

Crossing a beautiful desert landscape, this day will slowly lead back to the town of Djanet where the motorcycle tour in Algeria will be wrapped. Reach the hotel full of fond memories both of desert enduro riding and incredibly impressive nature. Say goodbye to your Touareg guide and the cook and then wash, lube, and load the bikes on the support truck and reorder your luggage for the departure. Dinner and overnight in the hotel in Djanet.

Day 10: Departure from Djanet

Depending on the flight schedule, the night may be pretty short (on certain days, flights leave Djanet at night). The Algerian motorcycle tour will come to an end. End of Desert Soul Adventures' services.
