Felucca by Night

Feluccas are classical wooden boats that people have sailed for centuries along the Nile. Consider for a time how significant the Nile has been to the entire course of Egyptian history. Glories ago, the Nile’s regular flooding patterns enabled the ancient Egyptians to cultivate the embracing land. Egyptian society sprang up along the river, which nourished the growth of an astounding civilization. The Nile also plays a larger-than-life part in ancient Egyptian religion and myth.

On your trip to Egypt, you’ll likely arrive by airplane and travel around the country by car — but take a moment to slow down and enjoy this slower, more traditional way of the trip. As you skim over the Nile waters in a felucca, you can witness for yourself what the Pharaohs themselves did when they traveled by boat. You’ll leave Egypt with a more concrete appreciation of( and sharing in) its legendary history.
