Nile River Felucca Cruises in Egypt

By Viator, January 2018

5 17 Reviews | Add your review

Cruising the world’s longest river has long been a popular pastime for intrepid travelers. The most authentic and intimate way to cruise the Nile is aboard a felucca, a traditional sailboat used in Egypt since ancient times. Here are some of the best options for Nile felucca cruises throughout Egypt.

Cairo
Even the most time-pressed travelers can enjoy some time on the Nile River aboard a wooden felucca sailboat from Cairo. During an hour-long cruise, you’ll enjoy fantastic views of the city skyline—its mosques, bridges, and skyscrapers—as you bob along, enjoying a warm breeze and a cool drink. Choose between an afternoon or sunset sailing.

Luxor
There’s something undeniably romantic about watching the sun set over ancient Thebes as you float along the Nile, and a short evening cruise is an excellent option for travelers with limited time in Luxor. Those with more hours to spare can embark on a full-day Nile River cruise to explore sites like the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, and the Colossi of Memnon alongside an Egyptologist guide.

Aswan
From the city of Aswan, a Nile cruise might take the form of a sunset sail around Elephantine Island, a leisurely sail along the Nile River banks to learn about daily life at the farms that hug the shore, or a private tour to Kitchener Island to visit the lush Aswan Botanic Gardens.
