Trekking tour in Tunisia

Description

The Trekking circuit in Tunisia is the ideal circuit for lovers of walking and trekking.

Like any physical activity, trekking is beneficial for your health, both physically and psychologically. Climbing mountains helps build your bones, strengthen your cardiovascular system and improve your immune system.

Our bodies are the temples of our souls. This is why our emotional balance is as important as our physical well-being. Trekking, hiking or any outdoor activity serves to strengthen your connection with nature, to exceed your limits with it and to discover its innermost mysteries. Ultimately, it will distract your mind, relieve stress, and calm your anxiety.

The pleasure itself is reinforced when we talk about hiking in Tunisia. Indeed, Trekking in Tunisia is an unlimited delight, since the trekking circuits are immense and innumerable.

For those who want to take the time to admire the landscapes and be closer to local life, this 7-day trek will allow you to combine the sea with the desert, cross Berber villages and walk in the mountains between the herds of sheep!

You will walk for hours in the footsteps of dromedaries and camel drivers in the middle of the desert and you will sleep once under the stars and another time with the locals!
