Must-do & Must-see - our suggestions

 

Must-do

  • If you’ve always dreamed of swimming with dolphins in their natural environment, a trip to Sataya Reef is a must. It is home to colonies of spinner dolphins that are known for their sociability, playfulness and sense of connection. 
  • A camel ride in the desert will give you a whole new taste of Egypt. During the ride, you will be able to slip into the shoes of the Bedouins and get to know their culture, traditions and the animal that accompanies them in their daily life.
  • Try something new and have a go at kitesurfing. Many of the coastlines along the Red Sea offer favourable winds and clear, shallow waters – all the best conditions for this activity.

 

Must-see

  • El-Quseir is one of the oldest cities in Egypt. Although it is best known today for its magnificent coral reefs, it is also home to many artefacts of its past as a strategically important trading city. 
  • Located south of Marsa Alam, the Wadi El Gemal National Park is home to an extraordinary biodiversity of animals and plants as well as a population of indigenous nomads whose culture and traditions have been well preserved. A trip to this unique site will allow you to see rare species in real life and experience mystical landscapes. 
  • Stop at Sharm El Luli on the coastal side of Wadi El Gemal National Park to take in the stunning beauty of this iconic beach. The unspoilt and authentic mangroves of El Qulan, a little further south, are also worth a visit.

Excursions

Excursions will allow you to discover your destination from all perspectives. LuxairTours offers a range of selected tours that will allow you to discover unmissable places, paradisiacal beaches, typical dishes... LuxairTours organises a range of quality excursions for you.

  • Experience the beautiful Red Sea with a dive that you’ll never forget! There are packages to suit everyone, from beginners to experienced divers to snorkelers. All equipment can be rented on site and you can even opt for lunch on the boat. Packages can also be spread over several days and there is the opportunity to upgrade to more advanced courses. You will receive a certificate at the end of each course. The minimum age for diving is typically 12 years.

  • Have you always been fascinated by ancient Egypt? Then a trip to Luxor is a must! This tour takes you to the west bank of Thebes and past the impressive Colossi of Memnon, the Temple of Amun, the Valley of the Kings and the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. This excursion also includes a boat trip on the Nile (drinks not included).

  • If you're staying in Marsa Alam, it would be a shame to miss the underwater world of Marsa Mubarak. This national park is home to one of the largest and most beautiful coral reefs in the Red Sea. We will accompany you on a snorkelling trip where you can discover extraordinary biodiversity as you swim alongside thousands of colourful fish, sea turtles and manatees. 
    The excursion includes snorkelling equipment, a hot lunch and a selection of soft drinks.

  • How would you like to explore the vastness and magnificence of the desert hinterland of Marsa Alam on a Jeep or quad bike safari? From a designated meeting point in the desert, you will first drive by Jeep to a Bedouin village where you can learn about their customs and traditions, and try an excellent tea carefully prepared according to an ancestral recipe. You will continue your journey – part of it by quad bike and possibly by camel if you wish – to a desert camp, where you will have a barbecue dinner accompanied by traditional dances and songs, before driving back to your hotel under the starry night sky... 
    This tour includes transfers to and from your hotel, the services of a guide, entrance fees, quad biking (40 minutes), a camel ride, a visit to the Bedouin village, tea and dinner with a selection of soft drinks.

  • Sataya is a coral reef stretching for over 5 kilometres along the southern coast of the Red Sea, which forms a calm, shallow turquoise lagoon.
    At 10am, you will be served a welcome drink at Hamata Marina. After a short briefing, you will set sail for about an hour and a half to reach the first snorkelling spot. Once there, you will have about an hour to explore the seabed and if you’re lucky, you may even get to swim with the dolphins! 
    After this first diving session, you will have a 45 minute lunch break before heading to the second diving site, which is located in the huge Sataya reef.
    You will return to Hamata Marina at 15:30.
    The trip includes hotel transfer, the services of a guide, soft drinks, snacks, and lunch. Snorkelling equipment is not included.
