Discover an enchanting land of stunning beaches and cultural treasures as you spend an action-packed holiday in Egypt. In the warmth of the year-round sun, you’ll explore traditional towns, ancient cities and modern resorts as you make the most of this beautiful North African country.
If you’re on the search for an adventure-filled holiday, Egypt will deliver adrenaline sports, wildlife spotting and plenty more besides. From scuba diving among shipwrecks in the depths of the Red Sea to camel trekking in the desert, there’s no shortage of things to do among the spectacular African landscapes.
For relaxing holidays soaking up the sun, Egypt has everything from peaceful palm-lined beaches to lively seaside resorts. Bustling Sharm el Sheikh is enduringly popular, while the smaller beachside towns of Dahab and Taba offer a more laid-back vibe perfect if you’re going away with the family or your partner.

After paddling in the crystal clear waters, take a walk to the beach bars for a refreshing cocktail, or tuck into delicious local cuisine at the nearby restaurants.

A trip to Egypt wouldn’t be complete without exploring the Nile. Take a cruise along the river to see the sights from the water, or use it as a starting point to see the country’s incredible ancient sites and temples. Visit the Pyramids and admire the Sphinx before uncovering fascinating tales at the Egyptian Museum in the capital, Cairo. While in the city, take your time wandering the streets on foot, photographing the amazing architecture along the way.
