Aswan (via Luxor or Cairo)
Holidays in Aswan
Egypt’s southern capital, Aswan, is 80 miles south of Luxor and is a peaceful and comparatively small resort. Pleasantly warm in winter and more bearable than elsewhere in summer, Aswan has a more relaxed atmosphere yet also offers plenty of historical interest.
Ancient sites such as the Temple of Philae and the unfinished obelisk are complimented by the modern Aswan High Dam. The breathtaking temples of Abu Simbel are accessible from Aswan, and well worth the effort.
Alternatively, stroll through the town and take in the beauty of the Nile.
Nile Cruises generally start at Luxor, cruise the Nile to Aswan, and return to Luxor again - stopping to access key sights along the way. Lake Nasser Cruises also depart from south of Aswan, and offer a fascinating alternative to cruising the Nile.
Nile Cruises are bookable online, but Aswan holidays and Lake Nasser Cruises are not - please contact our reservations team for rates on 0844 770 4877.
