LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Libya Expeditions, Libya’s leading tour operator and travel adventure specialist, unveils its most exciting Libya tour yet – “The Great Libyan Adventure,” an unforgettable 18-day journey into an exotic land of surreal desert landscapes, ancient civilizations, and outstanding beauty – a land truly “touched by the Gods” and the ultimate adventurer’s dream.

Libya, a blend of Mediterranean and Saharan cultures, has cemented itself as the “go-to” destination for the savvy adventurer and the discerning cultural enthusiast. Long a crossroads of ancient civilizations, Libya is an incredible land of Roman and Greek ruins and timeless desert landscapes and is home to five UNESCO World Heritage Sites: The Roman ruins of Leptis Magna and Sabratha; the Hellenic ruins of Cyrene; the desert town of Ghadames; and the Rock-Art Sites of the Tadrart Akakus.

“Libya has it all – sun, sea, sand, and culture,” says Ryad Sunusi, Founder and CEO of Libya Expeditions. “Libya has come of age and is quickly establishing itself as a premier travel destination in the Mediterranean for adventure and cultural travelers – now is the time to see Libya’s unspoiled treasures early, before the masses arrive.”

“The Great Libyan Adventure” is a comprehensive look at ancient and modern Libya, beginning with a coastal tour of the charming capital of Tripoli, the Roman sites of Leptis Magna and Sabratha, and Greek Cyrene and the Pentapolis. The tour then heads deep into the Libyan desert to the Ubari Lakes and into the freakish Tadrart Akakus. The famed Wadi Metkhandoush and its Neolithic rock art gallery is explored, before ending at Ghadames.

Top countries sending tourists to Libya are Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and the UK.
