Aswan to luxor on Kayak

The Expedition

Kayak  the Nile River, the first artery of  human civilization. We will follow  Hapi (Nile goddess) route surrounded  by Egyptian history, temples from  Aswan to Luxor. Over 5 days we will cover the distance  (around 200 Km) by kayak, up-to 5 hours kayaking per day. It is a  sportive challenge but still a cultural, human, historical and relaxing  experience.
Our kayak instructor will motivate and guide you throughout the  trip to achieve it. Support boat is always around, in case of emergency  or fatigue. We will be eating and sleeping on the support boat (camping  style)

Also available in Dhabia (Sail boat) cabin based luxurious boat.
