Diving in the palm grove of Tozeur

Covering an area of a thousand hectares, the Tozeur palm grove can be discovered on foot, by horse-drawn carriage or by bike. You will be able to plunge into this magnificent oasis, which would almost be a mirage at the gates of the desert with its 400 000 palm trees. Discover, in its heart, the museum of the Treasures of the palm tree or the zoo of the Sahara...

Climbing aboard the Red Lizard Train

Climbing aboard the Red Lizard Train will take you back to the 1900s when it started running. Furbished as it used to be (woodwork, leather lounges, lounge car), this train runs the line that goes from Metlaoui to a phosphate mine. The line crosses the Seldja Gorge, in a setting of striated rocks and streams that transport green clay. Duration of the trip: 1h45.
