Pure white flats all the way to the horizon—this is something that makes Tunisia a heaven for the cyclists. It's an exciting and economical way to learn the landscape and real life of Sahara where nobody will disturb you. Navigation in Tunisia is easy enough, and there are also markers every kilometre showing how far it is to the next large town. On your way, you can stop for relaxing camping and marvel at amazing sunsets.

One of the most popular roads goes from Douz to Tozeur through Chot El Jerid lake. This trail is popular because of its endless white views. Another interesting route is near the city Nefta, right next to Ong Ejamel where the Star Wars set is located. Even if you are not a movie fan, try to reach this track—it is an incredible desert overlook. You can also visit Chenini and the other Berber mountain villages with buildings set right in the rock. The best time for cycling is from October to May.
