Egyptian Desert Tours from Sharm el Sheikh

Egyptian Desert Tours from Sharm el Sheikh

More than 94 percent of Egypt is comprised of desert, so it’s no surprise that Egyptian history and culture developed around life in this harsh environment. For today’s traveler, a trip here wouldn’t be complete without a desert experience. Here’s how to explore Egypt’s desert from Sharm el Sheikh.

Camel Rides

One of the best ways to experience the stark beauty of Egypt’s desert landscapes near Sharm el Sheikh is the way it’s been done for centuries: by camel. Options range from a short ride through the sands of the Sinai Desert to a full-day trek to the base of Mt. Matamir and the Nawamis plateau, with its collection of Bronze Age tombs.

Quad Bike and Sand Buggy Tours

Looking for an adrenaline-fueled desert adventure? Opt for a quad biking day tour through the crags and dunes of the Sinai Desert. Ride solo or shotgun with a friend as you soak up the spectacular scene unfolding around you.

4WD Safaris

With so much desert out there to explore, it helps to make use of a rugged vehicle to get you there. On a 4WD safari from Sharm el Sheikh, ride across the desert sands to the majestic Colored Canyon, named for the multiple hues that reflect off the oxidized surfaces of the rocks.

Mountain Climbing

Hike in the steps of Moses as you climb Mt. Sinai, Egypt’s most famous mountain where the Ten Commandments were received. An early-morning hiking trip up the 7,497-foot (2,285-meter) peak culminates in a stunning sunrise view. Be sure to visit St. Catherine’s Monastery before heading back into town.

Stargazing and Dinner Shows

You haven’t fully experienced the Egyptian desert until you’ve been there at night. Head out into the wilderness for a traditional Bedouin dinner around a campfire as you learn about the nomadic way of life. Once the sun goes down, the stars come out over the mountains of the Sinai Peninsula—a spectacular sight far from the lights of the city.

Sometimes it’s hard to decide between a desert safari and a snorkeling trip. On this adventurous—but fully guided—tour, you can do both. Start by snorkeling the notorious Blue Hole, then ride a camel along the beach before roaring through the desert to the Colored Canyon in a Jeep. After the desert, there’s time for lunch at a restaurant in Nuweiba and shopping in Dahab.
