Spend Christmas in Egypt and Explore the Ancient Wonders of the Land of the Pharaohs

Dreaming of spending Christmas in Egypt? If your idea of the holiday season includes windows glazed with frost, snow-covered landscapes, and trees piled high with presents you might not consider Egypt as the ideal location to spend the annual season. This is unfortunate because Christmas in Egypt means endlessly sunny weather, easier access to some of the most popular sites of ancient history, and days and nights of 5-star accommodations.

Explore the Top Locations in Egypt

Christmas in Egypt

There are many top-notch Egypt tours available during Christmas that take travelers to such locations as Luxor, Kom Ombo, and Aswan, and famous cities like Cairo and Alexandria as well. They provide travelers with a rare opportunity to interact directly with trained Egyptologists and guides, and to explore sites like the Great Pyramids of Giza, the temple at Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings alongside them.

Christmas in Egypt might mean a day or two spent exploring Cairo, dining in its finest local restaurants, exploring its markets, and taking an exciting sleeper train south to Luxor. Once in Luxor a traveler on one of the Egypt New Year tours would then board their luxury cruise liner which would serve as a sort of floating hotel for the remainder of their journey.

They would disembark to make land excursions in places like Karnak, the temple of Hatshepsut, Esna, and Kom Ombo among a handful of other sites. They would also be able to enjoy leisurely lunches as they sailed past thousands of years of history, and could also engage in a hearty afternoon tea that would give them enough energy to make a final visit to the shore before heading back for a night of star gazing or sailing to another port of call.

While this is not the classic image of the holiday season, it is certainly one way to make Christmas or the New Year incredibly memorable. In fact, many of the lengthier Christmas Nile cruises include a special “gala” to mark the actual holiday and will include a gourmet meal and special celebrations.
