With the development of organized tourism in Tunisia only dating back a few decades, this fascinating country with 17 national parks protecting more than 256,991 hectares, beautiful medinas (old Arabic cities), and Berber traditions is still wildly under the radar for foreigners.
Tunisia has always been a hospitable country. Throughout its history, it has welcomed Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs Ottomans and Andalusians, compiling more than thirty centuries of diverse art and architecture. A colorful mixture of culture is evident through the Medina minarets, the Haussmannian buildings of the capital, the Roman villas of Carthage or the Andalusian domes in Testour, all taking you on a journey back in time.
With a coastline spanning more than 1,200 km and an impressive road network linking all the small villages and mountain trails, Tunisia is still a well-kept secret as an adventure tourism mecca. Whether you come to bike or hike in Boukornine National park and Jebel Ressas, birdwatch in Chebedda and in Tunis South Lake, or get your beach fix parasailing over the Borj Cedria nautical base or on Djerba Island, Tunisia offers enough diversity in both stunning landscapes and adventure activities to keep you happily exploring for weeks. With over 800 hotels, plus guest houses and memorable stays in the south in cave dwellings (called ksour which means “castle” in Arabic), Tunisia is excited and ready to receive you.
Having such a privileged coastal location, water sports were always the main adventure draw in this northern Tunisia destination. But with Djebel Ressas and Boukornine National Park also located here, land exploration by foot or bike to experience the diverse flora and fauna has become popular recently.
