Are you looking for a celebration of the spirit of Christmas, combining some of our Scandinavian heritage with an ancient Egyptian focus - then our arrangement is a perfect alternative! We love creating rituals that dramatize the significance of the time we are living in and the special places we visit. There will be much focus upon sharing, with activities for both children & adults - camel rides, boat trips on feluccas, temple visits, evening Sound & Light shows at Philae & Karnak, local markets, enjoying visit to Egyptian perfumery, dinner at Nubian village, bonfire dinners & dancing on the sandy banks of the Nile, authentic Egyptian musicians, experiencing the amazing Valley of the Kings, optional balloon flight to the West bank, meditation etc.
We have created a unique combination of different elements to provide the group with wonderful colourful activities and also much valued free time, to reflect, digest and float away into another world......
