Thanks for the reviewed information

This is the info that I received from the tourism agency in Algeria:

closed for tourism are actually:
- Erg Oriental
- Erg Issaouane, Erg Tiffernine
- The Amguid region and piste Amguid-Bordj Omar Driss and the direct
Amguid-Illizi piste
- The Oued Tahaft piste
- Erg heche requires an extra permit


Generally speaking, south of Illizi resp. In Salah you are almost free.”

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
