Nour El Nil Nile Cruises
Sailing the Nile Valley on a dahabiya is one of the best ways to experience the treasures of ancient Egypt. Reminiscent of the days when slow travel was the norm, the luxurious Nour El Nil cruisers offer the longest sailing time between Luxor and Aswan. Each of the 7 Nour El Ni dahabiyas has its own character and atmosphere. They differ in size, but they all have comparable levels of comfort and luxury. With 8 – 12 cabins each, the ambience remains intimate.
The meander from Luxor to Aswan takes 6 days on your choice of dahabiya be it Adelaide, Agatha, Meroe, Malouka, El Nil or Assouan. Being small, they can moor at places the larger ships can’t. True sailboats – not motorized – there’s a true feeling of peace and tranquillity. Your cabin choices are standard, luxury and the showpiece panoramic cabins, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Nile. Seriously stylish, you will breakfast in the sun before disembarking to discover ancient archaeological treasures or hiking through the dunes into the desert. Enjoy leisurely afternoons taking a refreshing dip in the river or sunbathing on the deck. On full display is authentic Egypt - farmers tending their fields, cattle grazing and children splashing away in the Nile waters. The crew offer impeccable service and you will be pampered with authentic Egyptian cuisine made from fresh ingredients purchased every day from the farmers and fishermen along the river.
