Adventures in Egypt

When we think of embarking on new adventures and trying out new things, you will be thinking about either unimaginable or regular adventures. If you are traveling to Egypt on your next vacation, then you are definitely lucky because Egypt offers both extreme and regular activities. The regular activities are many like hot air balloon, sand-boarding, or camping in Fayoum. Those regular adventures are definitely fun and exciting, but nothing that will get you adrenaline rush or heart pounding moments. However, if you love being uncomfortable and looking for super exciting extreme adventures, you will have various options to choose from. Check out the list of suggested Egypt Adventure Travel ideas down below:

1- Gilf El Kebir Expedition

It is definitely not a journey for the weak and its one of the best Egypt Adventure Travel and things to do.

Around 150 kilometers from the boundaries of both the Libyan and Sudanese deserts, in Egypt’s distant southwest, lies the enormous limestone plateau known as Gilf El Kebir. Up to this point, historical and prehistoric findings have been found in the region, which is thought to be unknown terrain.

The Cave of the Beasts and the Cave of the Swimmers are two caves near Gilf El Kebir that have rock art within that dates back 10,000 years. The carvings and the artistic details are the main attraction of Gilf El Kebir. Additionally, it is regarded as Egypt’s final “unrevealed” land for we know so little about this place. To reach this place, you will need to go for a couple of hours driving into the empty and wild Great Sand Sea after reaching the Farafra and Dakhla oases. If you are planning on going there, you will need to stock your vehicle with food, water, extra gasoline, and first-aid kit because the location of el Gilf El Kebir is a bit far from the civilized and human occupied area.

2- Kayaking from Aswan to Luxor

Yes, indeed it is possible to paddle over the 200 km that separates between two most renowned ancient Egyptian cities: Luxor and Aswan. However, it needs strong determination, extreme love for adventure, and physical fitness.  There are many kayaking expedition arranged regularly by the Nile Kayak Club that lasts for 7 days. Those seven days include complete 5 days of pure kayaking. During this trip you will be encountering amazing ancient Egypt monuments, tombs, and other less-famous attractions that you will be discovering along the road on different stops. Camping, eating and sleeping time will be on the boat. With a longer morning session and a shorter late afternoon/sunset session, you’ll paddle for around 5 hours every day.

3- Skydiving at the Pyramids

The idea of skydiving and throwing yourself out of a plane drives you crazy? Egypt levels up this experience because skydiving while looking down at one of the great wonder of the world, the three great pyramids! It is usually an event that lasts for 3 days organized by Skydive Egypt. They organize drop-off skydiving at the pyramids once or twice annually, so you will need to keep up with their schedule and offers. Your Travel adventure in Egypt is waiting for you.

In order to earn this experience, you will need a B skydiving certificate (over 100 jumps). If you are in process of earning this certificate, you can check Skydive Egypt trips to get yourself prepared for the skydiving at the pyramids. However, this would be a little more expensive plan.

4- Diving with sharks in the Red Sea

Even though Egypt consistently ranks at the top of worldwide dive site lists, most non-Egyptians are unaware of the *impressive* snorkeling and marine life we have here. The idea of swimming among sharks could be crazy, but trust me it is not as dangerous as you think.  Some people find that the reality of shark diving in Egypt’s Red Sea is safer and more tranquil while still providing them with the intense burst of energy they desire and demand.

If you’re fortunate, you could even get to witness whale sharks. To find out which species of sharks are present where and when, explore the optimum times of year of their presence. El Ikhwa Islands and Daedalus Reef are two well-known shark diving locations. The Red Sea is home to over 30 different species of sharks, the most of which are not harmful to people, however you should still give these enormous fish the respect and distance they require.

5- Rock climbing and bouldering in Dahab

You can try rock climbing and bouldering in Dahab if you enjoy exercising outside and getting your heart rate up, but in a very intense and exciting way. It is usually a winter type of activity or very early in the morning if you plan trying bouldering in summer.

6- Dirt biking in the desert

This activity is usually present in Hurghada where people get on their bikes or quad bike and go a little wild through the enormous piles of sand, valleys, dunes, and different desert terrains.

7- Long-distance hiking and trekking in Sinai

The Sinai Trail is a perfect option if you like hiking but are seeking for a challenging hike experience. This wilderness trekking adventure in Sinai is indescribable for its very special taste of enjoyment; it is intended exclusively for experienced hikers who are prepared to spend lengthy intervals of time living like Bedouin desert nomads.
