Activities in Egypt

Extras

Discover the Desert

Egypt's six oases in the vast Western Desert offer a fascinating glimpse of Bedouin and Berber life, often with ancient ruins nearby. Don't miss the White Desert, an area of dazzling white, wind-blown rock forms scattered across the wilderness.

Nile cruise

Travel the river between Luxor and Aswan, the trip lasts around three to five days, a boat ride is the quintessential Nile experience. Along the Nile, Egypt's ancient wonders unfold like a story book along the river bank.

Relive olden days

Aswan is the gateway to Africa offering a fascinating glimpse of the fast disappearing Nubian culture.

Golf

Egypt isn’t renowned for golf, but now prides itself on offering almost 20 golf courses. They range from locations alongside the Red Sea to within sight of Cairo's Pyramids.

Shopping

No trip to Egypt is complete without a trip to Cairo's famous Khan-el Khalili bazaar where haggling for spices, copper and brass, perfume and trinkets has been refined into an art form. Don't miss Fishawi's tea house; in business for over 200 years, it is the ultimate place to people-watch.

Hot-air ballooning

In Luxor, view the Nile, from a hot air balloon for some simple superb sights. Rise above the land of the Pharaohs’ and take a god's-eye view of the colossal works of ancient mortals.

Trekking

For centuries people have been Mt Sinai to witness the sun rise across the desert landscape. If the three-hour hike, stay overnight at St Catherine Monastery, hire a camel and walk down in leisure. Definitely a must if you are happy for the early rise

Snorkelling and swimming

Egypt's sublime coastline is easily assessable. Shoot out off the coast and snorkel or take a glass-bottomed boat from the shores of Sharm el-Sheik and the fish will come to you. If you not interested in getting your feet wet, just sit back on the beach and let the sun come to you.

Scuba Diving

The Red Sea lives up to expectation and has an abundant amount of colour, clear water, coral and drop offs as far as the eye can see. Head for Ras Mohamed National Park for the underwater world at its best.

Hungry

The catch of the day, seasoned with exotic spices and dressed with a dozen mezze (small dishes), is a treat you don’t want to miss out on.

Note: Ensure that you have the appropriate travel insurance cover before particpating in activities. We offer comprehesive cheap travel insurance.
