Lake Nasser Cruises

Aswan and Lake Nasser

For many, Aswan is the most beautiful city in the Nile Valley with sand dunes sweeping down to the Nile where the waters flow gently around the granite rocks and emerald islands. To the south of Aswan stands Lake Nasser, an enormous reservoir formed by the building of the High Dam in 1971. Before the dam was constructed monuments were moved from their original sites and grouped together at four locations Kalabsha, Wadi-as-Subua, Amada and the famous temples of Ramses II and Queen Nefertari at Abu Simbel.  

Lake Nasser is the world’s largest artificial lake and is surrounded by remote desert which covers the land of Nubia. A cruise on the lake gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy serene desert vistas and unique vantage point from which to explore the remote historical sites that the Lake protects for all future generations.

Highlights include:

  • Temple of Kalabsha and Temple of Beit el Wali 
  • Wadi el Seboua Temple entered through an avenue of sphinxes
  • Temple of Amada, the oldest monument on Lake Nasser 
  • Abu Simbel with the great temple of Ramses 11
