LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Libya Expeditions, Libya's leading tour operator and travel adventure specialist, today announced the addition of two highly anticipated Libya desert adventure tours to its holiday package line-up for Spring and Fall 2010 - the 12 day introductory "Libya Desert Explorer - Ubari Lakes" and the 14 day Sahara adventure, "Libya Odyssey - Into the Desert."

The North African country of Libya, long shrouded in mystery, has earned a cult reputation in recent years among adventure enthusiasts and the discerning cultural traveler looking for more than the usual "sun, sea, and sand" destination. Long a crossroads of ancient civilizations, Libya is an incredible land of majestic classical ruins and awe-inspiring 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 freakish Tadrart Akakus.

"Customers demanded, and we delivered," said Ryad Sunusi, Libya Expeditions Founder and CEO. "Libya is one of the most beautiful and magical travel destinations in the world, and we are pleased to offer travelers an opportunity to get off the beaten track and experience the incredible scenery and other-worldly landscapes of the Libyan Desert."

"Libya Desert Explorer - Ubari Lakes" takes you deep into the heart of the Sahara and into serene landscapes of outstanding beauty, a land often described as "touched by the Gods." Places visited include Germa; desert capital of the mysterious Garamantian Empire; the tranquil and gorgeous Ubari Lakes; the Metkhandoush Valley and its open art gallery of Neolithic Rock-Art; and the magnificent and foreboding Tadrart Akakus; a landscape reminiscent of an alien planet, with its bizarre rock formations, wadis, and cave art. From $2,230 per person, double occupancy, Land Only.

"Libya Odyssey - Into the Desert" takes the journey even further, venturing into one of the most amazing and remote places on Earth - Waw Al-Namus, an extinct volcano that rises out of the desert sands and is awe-inspiring in its solitary splendor. From $2,570 per person, double occupancy, Land Only.

Libya recently announced an ambitious strategy to attract 1.5 Million tourists annually by 2012; and to that effect, loosened tourist visa procedures so visas for most nationalities can be obtained on arrival.

Top countries sending tourists to Libya are Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Canada, and the U.K.
