Sail away like the ancient Pharaohs on this relaxing felucca ride around Elephantine Island in Aswan.
For centuries, the felucca has been used to sail down the Nile. This ancient boat has no form of engine and relies entirely on the breeze and current of the Nile. The Egyptian south blowing winds push the felucca upriver and allow them to return with the current downstream.
Enjoy the river breeze and stunning sights of Aswan. It all begins when your local expert guide picks you up from you accommodation and takes you to the boat. For the next hour, you will sail the mighty Nile, heading to Elephantine Island with a special visit to the Botanical Gardens. This incredible garden is full of rich plants imported from all over the world in 1899 by Lord Kitchener. Your guide will be sure to provide you with details of this fascinating tale and place. Once you have sailed the ancient waters of the Nile, your guide will then take you back to your accommodation. This is a beautiful and relaxing ride you do not want to miss!
