Challenge details

This trek leads you into the heart of the world's largest hot desert- the spectacular Sahara.

Many explorers have observed that there is no noise as deafening as the silence of a desert.

Supported by our local guides and their camels, we will spend three whole days exploring the vast wilderness of the Sahara, sleeping under the amazing starry skies and discovering how the untamed landscape shapes the lives of the nomadic people who inhabit it today.

What is Included?
  • International and internal flights and flight taxes
  • Transfers
  • All meals (including a celebratory meal on day 7) except in your freetime Accommodation
  • Experienced local guides
  • The support of an Action Challenge leader and a doctor
