Temple of Isis from Philae, Agilkia Island, Lake Nasser, Egypt

Lake Nasser

Lake Nasser, otherwise known as the Nubian Sea in Southern Egypt is the world’s largest artificial lake, formed following the construction of the Aswan Dam in the mid-1960s.

A cruise across its tranquil waters visits the lesser-known temples as well as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Abu Simbel, a highlight of any trip to Egypt.

Unlike the River Nile, Lake Nasser only has large cruise ships on which you stay during your cruise. Please ask us to run through the differences of each boat to find the right one to suit you. Combine a cruise on Lake Nasser with a stay in Luxor, Aswan, Cairo or in conjunction with a Nile Cruise.

Experiences

Abu Simbel

Explore the UNESCO world heritage site of Abu Simbel, a must see after the pyramids of Cairo.

Cruise Lake Nasser

Take a three or four-night cruise on the peaceful, calm waters of Lake Nasser on a luxurious motor vessel.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Tom Frost

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.
