Best Time to Fly to Algeria

Overall, Algeria's best time for tourists lasts from November to April. During these months, temperatures are milder, even in the Sahara, and autumn brings about the harvest season. If you want to catch springtime in the north, then it's ideal to visit from March into July. Flowers are everywhere, precipitation is low, and the weather is warm without being stifling. When August hits, don't go anywhere near the Sahara! You'll want to be hitting the beaches with all the locals, finding relief from summer's intense heat.

Travel Advisory

There is no travel advisory in effect for Algeria itself, but the Government of Canada does advise against visiting certain regions. They've warned Canadian travellers to stay away from Algeria's borders with Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Tunisia. The mountainous region of Kabylia has also been deemed unsafe. These areas are controlled by armed groups, who threaten assault, terrorism, and kidnapping.
