The Amatlich

Located north-west of the city of Atar, the erg Amatlich is a dune field of 13 kilometers wide on average and 400 kilometers long. These dunes lie between the black mountains of the Adrar and extend to the Atlantic Ocean. This long strip of dunes, with no end in sight, is the longest of all the South of the Adrar. The Amatlich, however, is not only this endless stretches of majestic dunes that makes the feeling of freedom more intense, and the taste of adventure more spicy.

It is also a very beautiful and vast environment of a wide variety of Saharan landscapes. In addition to the endless dunes, you will have the chance to see green palm groves, canyons and cliffs. Visit, on the west side of the erg, the beautiful palm grove of Azoueiga. A hike, in one of the most beautiful landscapes of Mauritania, would be more efficient with nomadic guides for a real human adventure.
