Steeped in ancient history, culture and archeological treasures, Egypt is home to two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Of course, the Sphinx, the Great Pyramid and the Valley of the Kings are obvious places to visit in Egypt, but the country is filled with other beautiful landscapes and outdoor adventures that often get overlooked.
Riverboat cruises on the Nile River are an interesting way to view the famous fertile banks of the longest river in the world. The Red Sea offers opportunities for snorkeling, diving, windsurfing and other watersports. For even more fun in the sun, visitors can experience the desert via camelback or enjoy the refreshing turquoise waters at the beach.
Beautiful beaches and a vibrant nightlife have transformed Hurghada from a simple fishing village into a major vacation destination. The warm waters of the Red Sea provide ample opportunities for windsurfing, sailing and snorkeling in the underwater gardens.
Diving in the warm, clear waters of the Red Sea is one of the top attractions in Sharm el-Sheikh. Located at the southern tip of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, this cosmopolitan resort offers everything from casinos and discos to camel rides, desert safaris and Egyptian antiquities.
