Travel to Libya

Libya is a country rich in ancient history and immense natural and cultural beauty.

Covering a surface area of over 1,700,000 square kilometres, the massive country of Libya has many large cities which are separated by stretches of desert. Sand and dust storms are frequent in the vast arid regions; apparitions, retelling the legends of the region that seems lost in time.

Libya Travel Highlights

El Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountain)

Sticking out like a sore thumb, this plateau consists of green fertile land in the east of Libyan outback. The area is known for the precipitation and lush vegetation – but this is only really when compared to the rest of the desert country, where many regions do not see rain for many years.

El Jabel El Gharbi (West Mountain)

The region of Libya most populated with the Berbers, the El Jabel El Gharbi region is alive with cultural and historical landmarks. The area is comprised of many smaller towns and villages, each overflowing with their own unique charms.

Skim between the remarkable beaches for some sun and Mediterranean Sea and then head inland for a journey through the primordial deserts.

Leptis Magna

Leptis Magna, in the town of Al Khums, houses some of the world’s most incredible ruins of the Roman Empire.

The site is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and made international news several years ago when beautiful and archaic mosaics were discovered during excavations – these mosaics are on display in the Leptis Magna museum.
