Egypt: Always dreamt of visiting the country of Pyramids and sunshine all year long?

Then perhaps it´s time you did! No country offers a more distinctive tourist attraction than Egypt with its Pyramids. Together with the statue of the fabled Sphinx (derived from both Egyptian and Greek mythology), the pyramids are one of the world’s most iconic tourist destinations.

The mystery of how they were built, what lay concealed within the tombs, and how the Egyptians managed to construct these massive stone edifices 4,500 years ago, remain as fascinating as ever for travellers from all over the globe. Plenty of theories are still being put forward as technology becomes more and more sophisticated and more evidence is uncovered about the Pyramids, one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World still standing today.

Selected destinations in Egypt

Sharm el Sheikh (or the “City of Peace”), at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula on the Red Sea in Egypt, has won the hearts of many travellers from near and far. Not only because inexpensive air travel has made it more accessible, but also because the sub-tropical climate is wonderful and the experiences to be had are exotic and varied. Here, you take a day trip to explore the culture of local Bedouin tribes, take your pick of the water sports you´ve always wanted to try, be pampered to within an inch of your life in some of the most luxurious hotels on the continent or enjoy exploring the ancient monuments and local cultures in one of the world´s most amazing places. Only here can you combine pyramids with diving on the red coral reefs, wreck diving or snorkelling – often from the comfort of live-aboard floating accommodation.
