Although Lake Nasser is the largest manmade lake in the world, you’ll find its serene waters and pristine banks full of natural wonders and ancient monuments. The picturesque Ancient Egyptian monuments retain their flavour and charm despite their relocation after the creation of the Lake Nasser.
Lake Nasser cruises are Nile cruises taken to the highest level of comfort and luxury; expect a totally different ambiance than the one you might sample on regular Nile cruises. Only six cruisers are allowed to sail on the lake, the boats are stunningly designed with touches of modern or Art Deco elegance. They usually include a swimming pool, a gym, a hammam or Jacuzzi, a bar, a gourmet restaurant, and guests are pampered with treats such as classical music in front of thetemples of Abu-Simbel.
Discover Kalabsha Temple, an Ancient Egyptian temple dedicated to the god Mandoulis and remodelled during the Greco Roman period, the Hemi-Speos of Beit el Wali and the Kiosk of Kertassi- all fine example of Ancient Egyptian, Nubian and Greco Roman fusion of architecture and religion.
Day two and three, sail to Wadi el-Seboua and visit Wadi el-Seboua Temple, the Hemi-Spocs of Derr and the Tomb of Penout.
Day four, sail to Abu Simbel to enjoy the Sound and Light Show followed by a romantic candlelight dinner.
You’ll finish the tour on day five, with the awe inspiring sight of the sunrise over the Temple of Abu Simbel.
