The Journey of Râ


From Luxor, embark on the iconic Nile boat, the DAHABIYA, for a timeless cruise. These elegant traditional boats, all in varnished wood and white sails, were once used to transport men and goods. Today, they are the ideal way to set off to discover a country that has lost none of its power of fascination, while the long and silent pace of navigation proves conducive to meditation and relaxation.

You will sail on the Nile, discovering the most beautiful sites of ancient Egypt, meet the Egyptians of today, and practice yoga at to the rhythm of the sun, surrounded by the ever-changing landscapes of the river, with its green banks and its ochre and burning hills.

Thanks to its lightness and its flat bottom, the DAHABIYA can dock on the shores of the river inaccessible to ocean liners. It is away from the tourist crowds that you will meet the peasants of the banks of the Nile, their traditions, their culture. Crossing villages, markets and palm groves, you will experience authentic and enriching moments of sharing, capable of creating long-lasting memories.

Meals are taken on board, prepared by our private chef. Vegetarian-pescaterian, made with local products, they are adapted to everyone’s wishes. Moments of sharing and conviviality between the participants and the crew.

Visits to the temples of the pharaohs, yoga practices, meaningful encounters. Live this experience and come back to earth with timeless memories.
