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 EgyptVery well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise
Trip to EgyptDevaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!
