Embark on walking holidays in Egypt, where you can experience ancient tombs, temples and local cuisine on foot while unearthing this destination’s many incredible wonders. Egypt is home to fascinating artefacts and ancient sites; you can even discover a lost civilisation as you cruise down the mighty River Nile and gaze upon the awe-inspiring Giza pyramid complex (Giza Necropolis), as well as the Great Sphinx of Giza. Hikers will love our Egypt Discovery - From North to South holiday, which gives avid ramblers a taste of the many astonishing sites and natural landscapes this North African country has to offer. During this tour, travellers can wander around the Valley of the Kings to see the rock-cut tombs of the pharaohs, before trekking across fascinating cities like Alexandria, Aswan and Cairo.
All of your transfers within Egypt are arranged for you in advance on this hiking holiday; all you need to do is savour exploring this impressive country from north to south. You will also benefit from an English-speaking Egyptologist guide, who will accompany you every step of the way to ensure you truly immerse yourself in Egypt’s history and culture.
Alternatively, book our Egypt Explorer & Nile Cruise walking holiday to sail on a luxury cruise ship between Luxor and Aswan, where you can watch birdlife and experience traditional farming practices. Enjoy a guided walking tour of colourful Cairo on this itinerary, too, and embrace traditional Egyptian temples as well as scenic trails.
In your leisure time during this tour, visit the unique Aswan Market. At this local bazaar by the river, you can find a range of goods from spices to perfumes, as well as original Egyptian and African items to purchase.
