Bike, snorkel, kayak and camp through some of the most stunning examples of natural Egyptian beauty.
Egypt’s Red Sea coast is a veritable treasure trove of natural beauty, a nearly-1,500 km avenue that showcases the very best of the country’s untarnished protectorates and the kind of sights that a travel blogger can only dream of.
Travellers consumed by wanderlust needn’t dream any longer, with Egypt-based travel company, The NS Crossing, set to hit the road for an incredible 12-day biking trip that will take a two-wheeled tour through the Red Sea coast’s most stunning spots.
Fittingly-named, ‘The Red Sea Crossing’ will start in Cairo and in Shalatin in the Halaib Triangle by the Sudanese border. The full excursion, which starts on November 26th, will cover 1,000 kilometers, seven cities, and 11 main attractions, including Ras Ghareb, Safaga, Al Naizak Beach, Wadi el Gemal Protectorate, and the Shalatin Camel Market before coming to a close on December 7th.
For some, 12-days might be something of a difficult commitment, which the folks at The NS Crossing have taken into account and subsequently divided the trip into three four-day stages, which travellers can join; Cairo to El Gouna, El Gouna to Marsa Allam, and Marsa Allam to Shalatin.
In addition to biking, you’ll be able to snorkel at the globally-celebrated Al Naizak Beach in Marsa Alam; kayak to the Mangrove Islands of El Gouna; camp amid Ain Sokhna’s mountains; visit national parks and protectorates, and take in the sights and sounds the citadels and lighthouses in Ras Ghareb, El Qusseir, and Safaga.
The ambitious, sweeping trip comes as the sixth and latest expedition from the company, which was founded by adventurer and cyclist, Galal Zekri-Chatila, and has racked up over 100,000 km in total across its trips.
The full trip costs USD 943 or EGP 14,800, with all road services, accomodation, food, all sightseeing fees, permits, and camping fees as well included in the price. You can reserve your spot with USD 318 as of right now via thenscrossing.com. Visitors to Egypt must present a negative PCR test taken no longer than 72 hours before departure time.
