Hurghada

Day 1-2
We will pick you up from the hotel or from the airport. At noon, we leave from Hurghada and travel to Aswan. If you find chaper flights to Cairo or Marsa Alam and make your way to swan yourself, just let us know, and we meet you there. Aswan is too beautiful to leave it right away. So we will have a day to discover and yes - we do a small tour by SUP around Elephantine Island, discover the tombs of the Nobles and see Aswan from above from the sanddunes at the Westbank and paddle into the sunset.

To Edfo City

Day 2-6
After breakfast onboard of our felucca we start paddling downstream. Day 2-5 we paddle and discover the life on the riverbanks or relax onboard and learn how to sail a felucca. We stop in villages and visit temples on the way, where the big cruise ships won't stop. Our boat crew is Nubian and know the best places along the shore, we stop in little markets, villages and can see a camel market, where camels that made all the way from Sudan. We anchor on islands in the middle of the Nile and make campfires for the night. Highlights are chats with the fishermen in their boats who always invite for a tea or to roam through temples and tombs off the touristpath like Gebel el-Silsila hidden in the reeds 60 km north of Aswan. Trust your luck and the guards will unlock hidden tombs. Once we arrive in Edfo we have shuttle service to Luxor - where we stay in little

Luxor

Day 6-7
You can get a massage or relax at the pool- but honestly, Luxor must be discovered! We will have bicycles to cruise around and to see the Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Hapchetsut temple and the Luxor and Karnak temple. Once you get tired, you can paddle to the other shore and stroll over the market or just relax in one of the many Nilecafe. In the evening we have a bus back to Hurghada.
