A far cry from the frenetic cities of Cairo and Luxor, Aswan’s picturesque surroundings and laid back culture allows for an intriguing combination of discovery and relaxation.

Aswan is beautifully set on the East Bank of the Nile at the great river’s first cataract, where the skyline is dominated by Aga Khan’s Mausoleum. The pretty town is home to some of Egypt’s most spectacular wonders – magnificent temples, the monumental High Dam and beautiful Lake Nasser. Savour freshly-caught fish in floating restaurants and stroll along the wide corniche as sailboats drift past.
