While the famous pyramids in Egypt are a sight to behold and a must-visit, it’s unbelievable how much else the country has to offer, which often gets overlooked.
Here’s a selection of experiences that every traveler to Egypt should have after they see the pyramids.
Ever wanted to have an extreme sports experience in the desert? I definitely recommend one of the many opportunities that Egypt and the Sahara Desert offer to go sandboarding, which allows you to shoot down a sand dune at high speeds.
Live Like a Pharaoh in Luxor
Egypt’s ancient history can also be discovered in the city of Luxor, which hosts a treasure trove of monuments and landmarks that date back to the time of the pharaohs. It’s just as mind-blowing as the pyramids but with fewer people.
Snorkel in the Red Sea
People don’t often connect Egypt to the ocean when they think of the arid country, but the Red Sea is one of the richest sites on Earth for marine life. Going snorkeling in Egypt’s Red Sea is an unforgettably beautiful experience.
Tour the Desert on a Camel
Sandboarding is one option for a Saharan experience, but if you want to take it slower and live like a traditional Egyptian, a great way to experience this is on a camel tour.
