Intro

A turbulent recent history means this beautiful and welcoming country sees few visitors. However, now that peace has returned, a visit to Lebanon is as rewarding as ever.

Lebanon is filled with both ancient and modern charms. Beirut is a cosmopolitan city of gourmands, Qadisha Valley boasts beautiful landscapes dotted with Arab Christian monuments, Byblos, Tyre and Sidon offer a glimpse into the origins of civilisation and Baalbek is a Roman site par excellence. 

There are attractions and activities aplenty in this increasingly thriving nation. Not to mention its famous cuisine; indulge in Lebanon's delicious mezze, syrupy pastries, and renowned fine wines.

Why travel with us ?

Lebanon is a compact yet highly diverse country in the Middle East, in some ways symbolic of the wider region. 

Befitting such a diverse country we offer a range of small group tours including an 'Essential' tour covering all of the major sites, an archaeology tour, a culinary tour and a range of trekking itineraries. 

We can also combine Lebanon trips with a range of options from neighbouring countries including Iran, Jordan and Israel/Palestine (all require local flights). We can accommodate all interests and tastes, so do get in touch - we would be delighted to put together a custom trip to suit your requirements.

Lebanon Crisis 2020

Lebanon is a country that is held close to our hearts here at Travel the Unknown. On 4 August 2020, an explosion rocked the city of Beirut that destroyed homes, businesses and lives in the Lebanese capital. We want to help the country and its industries get back up on its feet as soon as possible, so we are asking for your help.
