TN kolo Star Wars

An unforgettable guided MTB cycling tour in North Africa that will take you over mountain passes and through charming palm groves; after the daily stage on the mountain bike, you will camp under a huge dune close to a lost table-mountain deep in the Sahara and, after parking the bicycle, chill out in a thermal pool in the middle of a desert oasis. All-inclusive. Check tour video.

 

DAY-BY-DAY PROGRAMME

Note: the mountain bike tour program you're about to read is as we carried it out till the 2018/19 season. As of the 2019/20 season, we're launching a day shorter, thus 11-day cycling itinerary, so the present tour program should only give you an idea about how our guided cycling tours look like. We typically pedal throughout the larger part of the day, but at low intensity and stop every now and then to get to know the country, its people and the nature. Exact daily cycling stages depend on the terrain and the general physical preparation of every particular cycling group. We do however try to do our best to address individual wishes for longer or shorter stages during our mountain bike tour as well.

Day 1: TUNIS – TOZEUR

Tunisia camp 1 730 300

Please arrive at Tunis airport latest by noon to catch the afternoon flight to Tozeur (included in the tour price) in the southwest of Tunisia where we’ll pick you up at the airport and take you to the hotel where we’ll have our first dinner together and where your bicycle will be ready for you. Overnight.

Day 2: TOZEUR – CHEBIKA OASIS – TAMERZA

TN kolo date palms

First day on the bicycle, the route will take us in our assistance vehicle towards the mountain oasis of Chebika, but we’ll unload the bikes some distance before reaching the oasis and pedal to it through its date-palm grove. After visiting the pools in the shade of palm trees under the surrounding high rocky walls, we'll get back on the bikes and keep climbing a winding road to the oasis of Tamerza, visiting a pleasant impressive canyon, hidden behind the old part of the oasis. Overnight in our tents at a camp site.

Day 3: TAMERZA – REDEYIF – METLAOUI

Tunisia MTB 1 730 300

On the second active day of our guided mountain bike tour, we will leave the camp on our bicycles in the morning and climb to the town of Redeyif. There, we'll enjoy a marvellous view over the salty lake of Chott el-Gharsa from the top of a road, built by general Rommel corps during his North African campaign. A 7-kilometre descent will follow on concrete and gravel, then we'll continue a bit on tarmac and gravel to a dry riverbed where the next mobile camp will be already waiting for us among interesting rock formations. Dinner and overnight in Desert Soul Mobile Camp tents.
