Nile Cruise Holidays

Colossi of Memnon - West Bank Luxor

Luxury Nile Cruise Holidays

Few holidays offer the mystery, glamour or fascination of a Nile Cruise. Many of Egypt’s most iconic sights are located near the majestic Nile River - and you will explore most of them on a Nile Cruise holiday. Spend the day discovering the enthralling tombs, temples and artifacts left behind by the Pharoahs and the evening relaxing in style on board a luxurious cruise boat.

We have carefully selected the very best in luxury nile cruise boats from big names such as Oberoi and Sonesta cruises to ensure all of your needs are catered for. All are sold on a full board basis, and all include a full itinerary of excursions including sights such as the Temples of Karnak and Luxor, Valley of the Kings and Kom Ombo. On each excursion you will be accompanied by an expert Egyptologist who will explain the history, legends and anecdotes that have made the Ancient Egyptians a source of fascination for centuries.

Sonesta St George Nile Cruise sailing on the Nile

Location

Most 7 night Nile Cruises depart from and return to Luxor. Shorter itineraries may start or end in Aswan.

3 or 4 night Lake Nasser cruises either depart from Aswan and return to Abu Simbel or vice versa.

Climate on Nile Cruises

The climate is sunny and warm most of the year round, with little if any rainfall. On average you will enjoy winter temperatures of approximately 26°C with around 8 hours of sunshine a day. During the summer temperatures can exceed 40°C with 11 hours of sun a day.

Winter evenings can get very cool so warmer clothes may be necessary to remain comfortable after sunset.

Best Time to go

Nile cruises operate year round but as you will be spending a lot of time outdoors, walking around sites, a trip in March, April, September or October should ensure you miss the scorching summer heat and the cooler winter mornings and evenings. However if you do like the heat or prefer it a bit cooler the hottest summer and coolest winter months are usually a little less busy and the main sights are often uncrowded.

Tailor Made & Multi Centre holidays in Egypt including Nile Cruises

Egypt offers a multitude of options, many of which can be combined in a tailor made or multi centre itinerary.

Extend your Nile Cruise holiday with a relaxing week by the Red Sea. Egypt’s western Red Sea coast is easily accessible from Luxor by road and is the location for some of the region’s most enticing resorts including bustling Hurghada, beautiful El Gouna and exclusive Soma Bay. The world beneath the waves of the Red Sea is no less ancient or enthralling than the sights of Ancient Egypt - and with plentiful opportunities for diving, snorkelling and even glass bottom boat trips, it’s also very accesible.

Alternatively, if you’d rather stay near the mystical River Nile, extend your stay with extra nights in Luxor or Aswan. Both cities have plenty to offer and deserve closer inspection. Apart from the many sights dotted around Luxor, the city is also an interesting place to shop, eat and simply explore. Life in Aswan moves at a more relaxed pace, but the city has a uniquely tranquil atmosphere that is an attraction in itself.
