The Moroccan-Algerian border has been closed for many years and was only opened once in recent years to allow an aid relief convoy through that was on its way to Gaza.

You can't go south to enter as it's too dangerous in Mali, so your ONLY option is to return to Spain, then get another ferry to Algeria.

Perfect. Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunis & Sicily

Hey mate,

I am also looking to ride across northern Africa around April 2013, then taking a ferry to Sicily. I live in the UK and will be riding down from there and returning via Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and France. I have ridden to Italy before and I have ridden to Morocco also but never cut east into Algeria. Are you planning to go onto Libya and Egypt or are you also heading to Italy before going North?

I think the most difficult part will be the border crossing into Algeria from Morocco, I haven’t looked into it yet but would you consider taking a ferry from Spain and skipping that border? How are you getting on making contacts in Algeria to help with the border crossing?

Anyway I would love company for the trip, I'm only 24 but have plenty of riding experience. I wouldn't consider myself a great off road rider but I'm always keen to get stuck in and really enjoy it. I ride a BMW R1200 GS and am studying to be a paramedic in the UK, I have been managing night clubs for the past 6 years. If you wanted to discuss further I can get in touch via Skype or Email. Let me know your thoughts.

Kind Regards
Sean Kelly
