    • Cycle touring in Algeria

      Algeria Jan 29, 2014 at 10:03 AM

      I am planning a cycle camping trip from Oran to Alger (as part of a 12 month trip) and don't seem to be able to find anyone else who has done it......presumably due to the difficulty of getting a visa (working on this...). I will probably stick to the coast - are there any areas to stay away from between Oran and Alger?

    • Finding budget hotels in Algeria

      Algeria Jul 11, 2013 at 9:03 AM

      I'm heading from Almeria (Spain) to Ghazaouet tomorrow, but the thing that keeps bothering me is wether I'll be able to find hotels in Algeria - budget hotels to be particular. I don't want to spend 50 EUR/night for a hotel, but all I can seem to find online is at (the very least) least 50 EUR.

      Does anyone know the avaiability of budget hotels in for example Tlemcen, Oran, Algiers and Ghardaia? Will they accept foreigners?

      Thanks in advance

    • Safety & hotel confirmation

      Algeria Apr 9, 2013 at 1:42 AM

      Hello all,

      I'm likely going to visit Algeria in July, but the Dutch government advices against all but essential travel to Algeria. Since I know travel advices are a bit 'conversative' I don't take them very seriously. However, I'm certainly aware that there are unsafe places in Algeria. I'm going to visit the northern cities (Oran, Algiers and Constatine) and Ghardaia further south. Are these cities safe to visit (as a solo-traveller)?

      Secondly the Algerian embassy in The Hague requires a hotel reservation in order to apply for a visa. I was looking at for a good deal, but the hotels are incredible expensive! I was actually thinking of spending 15 - 20 EUR per night, and not >60 EUR. Does anyone know how to obtain a hotel confirmation without spending alot of money? Is faking a hotel confirmation an option?

      Thank you!

      CHEAP hostel

      Algiers Jul 20, 2012 at 12:17 PM

      I am planning on going to algeria in a few weeks, hopefully. There are not any cheap hostels in algiers, algeria online, like many other countries, so I will have to find one via word of mouth. I am looking for nothing more than 15 dollars a night. Have any backpackers been to algiers? If anyone knows of some hostels that are very low budget, let me know the name and address. I would really appreciate it. I have already searched the internet. Thank you!

      Tourist Itinerary

      Algeria Sep 1, 2011 at 9:39 AM

      My trip to Tindouf seems to be coming together for about half of November. Afterward, I have been trying to arrange to see (at least) Algiers and Constantine and I think that I have discovered a way to make that happen. My question is which locations should be at the top of my priority list after these two cities? My primary interests for this (after)trip are history, though not necessarily pre-history, and culture. I would also like to experience something of the Berber and Touareg cultures. More time is available than money.

      I ask them to indicate on a map and tell how to get to.

    • From Algeria to Morocco

      Algeria Mar 2, 2011 at 10:11 AM

      In the future I plan a trip to the countries of Maghrib (as soon as there to come to an end disorders).

      And so a problem. A shock for me was that the border of Morocco-Algeria is closed!
      I planned the travel by train, since by plane very expensively for me (Algiers-Casablanca - 361$).

      Whether probably somehow cheaply and quickly to get from Algeria to Morocco? Not necessarily by the ground, it is possible and by sea...
      But escape Europe! (I, as the citizen of the Russian Federation, will spend many money and nerves for Schengen visa registration, though I am not going to live in Europe even day)

      Interesting information I found in Russian (I have translated):

      The border with Morocco closed in 1984. About her go to all kinds of rumors. Most people say that the border is closed completely and passage through it impossible. But there is also such opinion that the foreigner who has written out in police a certain paper, can pass through frontier transition Maghnia - Oujda. Unfortunately, this information has not been tested by anyone. (

      From Algeria it is possible to get two ways. The overland border which long time was closed, has opened recently, but only for foreigners, therefore the local can wrongly consider that it is closed. Unique transition – near the Moroccan Oujda. Transition under Béchar is closed. Trains don't go to Algeria. (

      Help me, please.
