Algeria in pictures - Souk Haras
In brief +
FCO travel update: the FCO advises against all but essential travel to specific areas of Algeria. To check the area you are travelling to , see here: FCO Algeria Travel Advice.
Renowned for its sublime Sahara covering over 80% of the surface area, Algeria offers between its ergs and oasis, breathtaking views of the Atlas mountains, the Chelif Valley or the Lalla-Khadidja mountain in Kabylia. Apart from its incredible geographic assets, Algeria equally abounds in vast cultural riches thanks to its history that blends both Arabic and Berber traditions. Jealous of its authenticity, Al-Jaza'ir took its time before opening up to tourism. In spite of the terrorism risk, Algiers, Oran, Constantine and Bejaia are today secure areas just like the other areas with tourist routes of the Grand South of Algeria that is such a treat to the eyes: Tamanrasset, Timimoun, Bechar... with their unchanging splendours.
