Yoga Journey with Ulrika to Egypt
THE RIVER NILE
November 2nd – 9th, 2024
We begin on land in the outskirts of Luxor with a weekend at a private guest house catered by our chef and expert guides. We gently enter the Egyptian culture with an evening lit up show at the Karnak temple, private transportation touring the sacred sites around Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. After two days of walking like an Egyptian we board our private deluxe dahabiya and set sail to glide slowly and peacefully down the River Nile.
This tailor made Yoga Journey is limited to 16 guests. Set yourself free and come with me on a high end magical journey filled with Egyptian wonders.
The voyage onboard our dahabiya from Luxor to Aswan is guided by the Egyptologist onboard who has uniquely crafted an itinerary visiting cultural sites of ancient beauty on the shores of the Nile. A crew of fifteen cater our experience, prepare our meals, ensuring comfort and ease along the Nile. The river flows slowly and it’s a gentle, scenic ride all the way.
Mixing the elements of ancient Egyptian history, vibrant cultural experiences and exotic cuisine our journey comes alive with excellent guides and yoga guided by Ulrika. We visit temples of the Egyptian Gods, hike to tombs and hieroglyphs carved into the mountains, visit thriving merchant towns filled with exotic goods, spend a quiet and devotional day floating down the river, walk a trail in the desert to a hidden ancient site, partake in a tea and water pipe ritual, anchor by islands for a swim and enjoy nights on the water beneath the starry desert sky.
Removed from the rush and crows of typical tours, you will find yourself traveling to Egypt’s finest destinations at our own leisurely pace. The atmosphere onboard is sublimely exotic and mesmerizing. We practice yoga in the shade on top deck at sunrise. Comfortable, deluxe accommodations, chic decor and top service make the journey restful day and night. All meals, authentic Egyptian, fresh cuisine from farmer’s markets and fishermen, snacks and non alcoholic drinks are all included and served with delight.
A festive and memorable farewell dinner onboard the last night bring our journey to a close. We end our seven night journey in Aswan. At this point you can choose to add a couple of nights to visit the famous Nubian village or go on a day trip to Abu Simbel before flying back via Aswan to Cairo and back home. Our guides are happy to help assist with making travel arrangements and transportation at extra cost.
