A trip along the Nile River is a journey back in time, measured by the intense and slow rhythm of 5000 years of civilization, a cruise through history.. – Anonymous traveler
The cruising on the Nile is an everlasting fashion and it’s the ideal way to observe Egyptian culture and explore its historical treasures, unwinding the stresses and strains of modern living behind and just relax!
A timeless rural tableau floated by, like a hieroglyph, will appear to your eyes: farmers in biblical linens rode donkeys, boys fished from skiffs, women washed clothes among the papyrus shaded by date palms, acacias, mimosa and sycamore. Every now and then a felucca would move into sight, while you are cruising between the grand archaeological sites of Luxor and the thriving markets of Aswan, along lush ad ancient landscapes.
You may even choose to experience the Nile in the traditional way, featuring style and luxury accommodation dahabyya cruises, to make your trip more interesting and authentic.
Dahabyya are traditional Egyptian sailboats used along the Nile River since the ancient times and designed for travelers seeking calm and relax, so that you’ll find yourself traveling to Egypt’s finest destinations at your own leisurely pace.
But we should not forget that there are two options for cruising in Egypt: the Nile but also the Lake Nasser, both offering memorable experiences. Moreover they can be combined for a more comprehensive tour of the country.
For those preferring a more relaxed rhythm, Lake Nasser is the world’s largest reservoir and yet only around eight boats are found on the lake, making you feel like the first explorer sailings its deep blue waters.
The temples’ location on the shores of this vast lake with the desert stretching at their backs, and the Nubian influence on their design, makes them well worth seeing, while reaching Abu Simbel by motor ship will leave you breathless.
