When you think of Egypt, you might think pyramids, pharaohs, and camelsí pipes, but the resort of Sharm-El-Sheikh offers a modern coastal-resort experience. If you and the family are looking for an action-packed holiday in the sun, with an added twist of culture and history, then why not head to Egypt this holiday season?
So, whatís on offer in Sharm El Sheikh?
If you want to ease yourself in to the adventure and action, why not start with a day at the aqua park? There is something for all the family, from a young kids play area, to some of the more hair-raising water slides, to a grown-ups bar area.
Explore the Sharm Desert
When visiting Sharm El Sheikh, a trip to the desert is a must! If you are up for some serious action, take a buggy safari across the Sharm. You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the buggies, which you will be able to drive yourself, either in a group or alone.
If a buggy isnít your thing, then how about a quad bike? Both are available to hire for an action packed afternoon on the sand. If this is all sounding a bit too action packed, then you can explore the Sharm desert in a slightly more sedate way, by going on a camel ride or for a traditional Bedouin dinner. Finish your day of adventure with a night of stargazing.
Parasailing will give you a view of Sharm El Sheikh that you cannot get any other way! Take in the stunning views as you glide over land and sea. Parasailing is a great activity if you want to get into extreme sports or are thinking of doing a parachute jump, as it eases you into the feeling of flying. You can parasail individually, or with someone else.
Mount Sinai, the place where, according to The Bible, God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses. Whether you are making a pilgrimage, or want something a bit more action packed, an excursion to Moses Mountain is a must. It is not for the faint-hearted, however; soaring a scary 2,285 meters above sea level, Mount Sinai is quite a climb.
You can hire a team of professionals who will take excellent care of you from the bottom right to the top, which can reach chilly temperatures of -4 degrees.
So if lazing around on the beach all day isnít your ideal way to spend your holiday, then why not head to Egypt for an action packed holiday in one of the most interesting and rich cultural hotspots in the world?
