Adventure Activities Egypt

Egypt is one of those countries which have a very unique and wide range for activities. There is desert, there are beaches, and there are highlands as well. There are many things to do in Egypt and of a different variety.

Shopping in Egypt

Egypt has as many souks, bazaars and local markets as there are malls and shops. They have the authentic essence and the typical humdrum of any Middle Eastern shopping street, and a cheap rate of everything matching with the ambience. Khan El Khalili Market in Cairo is a 500-year old maze of shopping lanes and alleyways selling everything from spices to clothes to décor items. Another market for tourists in Cairo is Tawfikia downtown. All the other cities like Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada have similar markets. The Attarine market in Alexandria is famous as well.

Adventure activities in Egypt

The beaches of the Red Sea and the Mediterranean have many stunning spots for snorkelling and scuba diving. Marsa Alam is known for being a one-of-a-kind dolphin retreat. Since a large part of Egypt is open desert, hiking and quad biking through the sands is a very popular adventure activity. The white canyons of Nuweiba and the sacred Mount Sinai are especially popular for hiking and rock climbing. You can also indulge in sandboarding in Fayoum.

Here are some of the best Egypt things to do.

1. Nile River Cruise

Nile River Cruise is by far the best thing to do in Egypt. You will be sailing 5/6 days on the Nile, depending on the cruise that you have booked and it will take you one by one from Cairo to Alexandria, Aswan, Luxor and even Khartoum. In each city, the visitors can go visit the main attractions and then set sail for the next destination.

2. Scuba Diving in the Red Sea

The Red Sea, situated on the east of Egypt and separating it from Asia, is a fascinating body of water and has many lovely diving spots. Sharm el Sheikh is a hotspot for scuba diving in Egypt, including the famous wreck site of British carrier SS Thistlegorm. One can visit the dual islands of Big Brother and Little Brother near Hurghada for some excellent coral diving. Corals are there in Elphinstone Reef as well, along with white tip and hammerhead sharks.

3. Hot air balloon ride in Luxor

The historic city of Luxor is not only known for its temples and the Valley of Kings but also for a great balloon ride over the city. It is one of the fun activities in Egypt and offers a spectacular bird’s eye view of entire Luxor.

4. Camel rides in Giza

Riding on camelback at the base of the Great Pyramids in Giza is one of the top things to do in Egypt. You can take a short one for half an hour during the sunrise or sunset, and the camel guides will take you to the prime positions from where the scene looks the best. Or you can take longer rides through the desert to some other pyramids which last up to 2-3 hours.

5. Desert Safari

A large part of Egypt is the greatest desert in the world, Sahara. There are numerous agencies with desert safaris in different locations, spanning over periods of a couple of days to fortnight long. For the most amazing time, visit The western desert, the White Desert, the Black Desert, the Great Sand Sea.

    • Trip to Egypt

      Except for the resort in Egypt, where check in process was super slow, with no help from the hotel staff, the entire tour was awesome. It was well planned and well arranged. Travel triangle did a good job.

    • Trip to Egypt

      Egypt. Tour agents and services were excellent and very cooperative . Cruise was excellent but service provision inside the Train was of BAD quality. Hotel room provision at Pyramis park was satisfactory and need improvement in quality of cleanliness.. Room lights and telephones were defective and not properly maintained . Dubai hotel arrangement and tour was excelantent however services of tour guide was unsatisfactory and need improvement. All flight booking except Indigo flight for Dubai mum was not good . The hot and humid weather condition restricted enjoying the tour at Egypt.

    • Trip to Turkey

      We had planned a 12 day trip to Turkey and Egypt through Offbeat Trippers / White Rabbit Holidays. Abhishek was extremely prompt and with his help, we were able to customise our itinerary over just one weekend. After that all bookings, travel details, emergency contacts etc. were shared well in time, and without any confusion. He was also available through the trip and was sharing updates as and when needed. On ground, all the airport transfers, day tours were extremely punctual, and there wasn't a single place where we had to wait. The hotels were good too. It was a memorable trip, with absolutely no glitch! Suggestion: A better agent for managing Visas. The contact given to us was not very responsive, so we found another agent.

    • Trip to Greece

      We just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
