With an array of different climatic zones, Libya draws its influences from both the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara.
With a rich history in-between continents and ancient empires, Libya is home to the Mediterranean’s highest presence of Roman and Greek cities in the same region – Sabratha, Cyrene
and Leptis Mana
-which are each overlaid by remnants of Byzantine. With a multitude of monuments and an enriched history, Tripoli
takes you back to a different period in time.
The Sahara desert covers over 90% of the country. Offering incredible views of the desert, towns such as Ghadames
are built around oasis and where once lavish caravans were displayed. Lakes are fringed by large palm trees and expansive sand dunes bang in the middle of the Sahara desert.
Extinct volcanoes such as Waw al-Namus
, where the lakes are uniquely multicoloured, and imposing displays of prehistoric rock arts can also be experienced at Jebel Acacus
Libya has as many as 5 different climatic zones with the dominant climatic influences being those of the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara. Most of the climate is Mediterranean with very warm summer days and mild winters with rainfall being very sparse. In the highlands the weather is cooler and most frosts take place at maximum elevations. In the desert, summers are hot with extreme temperature ranges.
