5 Adventurous Things to do in Tunisia – Exotic adventures in North Africa

Tunisia is a land of mystery and intrigue it is not the typical vacationer's destination but instead a place where only the adventurous dare; a country of exotic beauty and stunning people.


Hot air ballooning

All the best Tunisia hotels such as the highly acclaimed Anantara Tozeur Resort provide services or will point you in the right direction to experience one of the most breathtaking rides the world has to offer. Hot air ballooning over the beautiful exotic landscape of Tunisia is something hard to put into words. The sights are simply magical and the terrain unfolding beneath you seems taken straight from the imagination of a renaissance artist. If you ever visit this magical country, remember that your trip isn't complete without a ride into the sky in a hot air balloon.


Camel rides

You can never really comprehend the vastness, isolation or the majestic beauty of the desert till you experience it firsthand. It has long been a subject many writers and poets have romanticised with but words fail to create its true nature in the mind of another. When you are Tunisia makes the most of this opportunity and trek out into the desert on the back of a camel with some supplies and your wits on the adventure of a lifetime. You can opt for a day trip or even a week-long excursion amidst the dunes – it all depends on your daring.


Explore Matmata's caves

If you have a watched Star Wars: A New Hope these caves will surely be a special experience for you because it was the setting for Tattooine, where young Anakin Skywalker grew up. There may not be high-speed races and alien creature but these ancient caves are a place of beauty and you can immerse yourself in exploring them for hours on end.


Red lizard train

It may not be the Orient Express but it sure does come close. The Red Lizard Train was built in the 1800s by French colonists and remains as a nostalgic reminder of those long-gone days. An ode to the old world visitors from the new can enjoy and relive. The train takes you through some of Tunisia's most beautiful terrains and also offers an experience unlike any other.


Motorbike trip

There is something about straight open roads and motorbikes, both offer a sense of freedom and rebellion. Travellers seek excitement and new experiences, so if you are Tunisia hire a bike – it is quite cheap and set off on an adventure of your own design.



If the thrill of hot air ballooning, motor-biking or desert trekking aren't enough to pump that adrenaline head to the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and surf the wind. It is definitely more thrilling than simply surfing and relying on the waves for the rush you seek. The winds here are strong and windsurfing is not for the faint of heart. It is something you must try when you visit this beautiful country.
