What to see on the Nile Cruise?

General information.

In 2011, we spent one-week vacation on the Nile cruise in Egypt. We bought all-inclusive package tour, including flights between Helsinki and Hurghada, transfers between Aswan and Hurghada, all visits on ancient temples, nights on a cruise boat with food and drinks.

How it was! Awesome. All the temples leave on visitors an unforgettable impression. There is much to see and to shoot photos. I shot 1926 photos of which I’ll present 361 in eight posts! We visited to these temples: Karnak, Luxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatsesup, Colossi of Memnon.

The cruise is like making a time travel, travelling back in history for thousands of years. The scenery changes slowly and life along the banks of the Nile seems to be slow life, no hurry. From time to time we encountered other cruise ships, onshore we saw bovines, camels, fishermen, shacks, debris, palm trees, distant mountains, and as the evening progresses, spectacular sunsets.

The slow life continues on a cruise boat, eating, drinking ,sun bathing, admiring sceneries, resting and swimming in a pool. Everyday worries and care are behind and it’s time to enjoy life. The mind is filled with the excitement of waiting to see all those old temples.

Boat trip.

One of our unforgettable memories in Aswan was a boat trip. Boat ride started from Aswan and headed toward Nubian village. During the boat trip, Nile showed us gorgeous rock formations and big amount of different birds. It seemed that they accustomed to boats. We stopped at the Crocodile house. There were many camels around there, but the house was interesting. Of course, it was a tourist trap, but I found something interesting me.

On the walls were hanging beautiful painting. The walls of the buildings were turquoise and blue. Rooms inside were light pink. When continuing little bit forward on the boat cruise, we came to the area of camels and camel ridings. Camels were real “attention seekers”. It was a great joy to shoot photos about them. My wife participated in a camel ride and yet today she is proud of it. All of us are not heroes, but we are heroes of our own lives.

On the way back we saw the mausoleum of Aga Khan and the Old Cataract Hotel. It is the place where Agatha Christie, set portions of her novel Death on the Nile. Also, the 1978 movie of the novel was filmed at the hotel.

En español:

¿Qué ver en el crucero por el Nilo?

Información general.

En 2011, pasamos una semana de vacaciones en el crucero por el Nilo en Egipto. Compramos un paquete turístico con todo incluido, incluidos vuelos entre Helsinki y Hurghada, traslados entre Aswan y Hurghada, todas las visitas a templos antiguos, noches en un crucero con comidas y bebidas.
¡Fue maravilloso! Increíble. Todos los templos dejan en los visitantes una impresión inolvidable. Hay mucho para ver y tomar fotos. ¡Saqué 1926 fotos de las cuales presentaré 361 en ocho publicaciones! Visitábamos a estos templos: Karnak, Lúxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatshepsut, Colosos de Memnon.

El crucero es como viajar en el tiempo, viajar en la historia durante miles de años. El paisaje cambia lentamente y la vida a lo largo de las orillas del Nilo parece ser lenta, sin prisas. De vez en cuando nos encontramos con otros cruceros, en tierra vimos bovinos, camellos, pescadores, chozas, escombros, palmeras, montañas distantes y, a medida que avanza la noche, espectaculares puestas de sol. La vida lenta continúa en un crucero, comiendo, bebiendo, tomando el sol, admirando paisajes, descansando y nadando en una piscina. Las preocupaciones y los cuidados cotidianos están atrás y es hora de disfrutar la vida. La mente está llena de la emoción de esperar para ver todos esos viejos templos.

Viaje en barco.

Uno de nuestros recuerdos inolvidables en Asuán fue un viaje en barco. El paseo en bote comenzó desde Asuán y se dirigió hacia el pueblo de Nubia. Durante el viaje en barco, Nilo nos mostró hermosas formaciones rocosas y una gran cantidad de aves diferentes. Parecía que estaban acostumbrados a los barcos. Nos paramos en la casa de los cocodrilos. Había muchos camellos por allí, pero la casa Fue muy interesante para mí. Por supuesto, era una trampa para turistas, pero encontré cosas interesantes en su interior.

En las paredes colgaban hermosas pinturas. Los muros de los edificios eran turquesas y azules.Las habitaciones interiores fueron de color rosa claro.Al continuar un poco hacia adelante en nuestro crucero en barco, llegamos a la zona de camellos y paseos en camellos.Los camellos eran verdaderos “buscadores de atención”. Fue una gran alegría tomar fotos de ellos. Mi esposa participó en un paseo en camello y, sin embargo, hoy en día ella es orgullosa de sí mismo.Todos nosotros no somos héroes, pero somos héroes de nuestras propias vidas!!!

En el camino de regreso vimos el mausoleo de Aga Khan y el Old Cataract Hotel. Es el lugar donde Agatha Christie, estableció partes de su novela Muerte en el Nilo. Además, la película de 1978 de la novela fue filmada en el hotel.

En francais:

Que voir sur le navire de croisière sur le Nil?

Informations générales.

En 2011, nous avons passé une semaine sur la croisière sur le Nil en Égypte. Nous avons acheté un forfait tout compris, comprenant les vols entre Helsinki et Hurghada, les transferts entre Assouan et Hurghada, toutes les visites dans des temples anciens, des nuits en bateau de croisière avec nourriture et boissons.

Comment c’était! Impressionnant. Tous les temples laissent aux visiteurs une impression inoubliable et profonde. Il y a beaucoup à voir et à prendre des photos. J’ai pris 1926 photos dont 361 dans huit messages! Nous avons visité ces temples: Karnak, Louxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatsesup, Colosses de Memnon.

La croisière est comme un voyage dans le temps, remonter dans l’histoire depuis des milliers d’années. Le paysage change lentement et la vie sur les rives du Nil semble être lente, sans hâte. De temps en temps, nous rencontrâmes d’autres navires de croisière. À terre, nous voyions des bovins, des chameaux, des pêcheurs, des cabanes, des débris, des palmiers, des montagnes lointaines et, au fil de la soirée, des couchers de soleil spectaculaires. La vie lente continue sur le bateau de croisière: manger, boire, se bronzer, admirer des paysages, se reposer et nager dans une piscine. Les soucis et les soins quotidiens sont derrière et il est temps de profiter de la vie. L’esprit est plein d’attente de voir tous ces vieux temples.

Ce post:

Promenade en bateau.

Un de nos souvenirs inoubliables à Assouan a été une excursion en bateau. Le trajet en bateau a commencé à Assouan et s’est dirigé vers le village nubien. Au cours de la croisière, le Nil nous a montré de magnifiques formations rocheuses et une grande quantité d’oiseaux différents. Il semblait qu’ils étaient habitués aux bateaux. Nous nous sommes arrêtés à la maison de crocodile. Il y avait beaucoup de chameaux dans les environs, mais la maison était intéressante. Bien sûr, c’était un piège à touristes, mais j’ai trouvé quelque chose d’intéressant pour moi.

Sur les murs étaient suspendus de beaux tableaux. Les murs des bâtiments étaient turquoise et bleus. Les chambres à l’intérieur étaient rose pâle. Continuant un peu en avant sur notre croisière en bateau, nous sommes arrivés dans la zone des chameaux et à des promenades à dos de chameau. Les chameaux étaient de véritables “demandeurs d’attention”. Ce fut une grande joie de prendre des photos d’eux. Ma femme a participé à uner andonnée chamelière et pourtant, aujourd’hui, elle en est très fiere. Nous ne sommes pas tous des héros, mais nous sommes des héros de notre propre vie!!!

Sur le chemin du retour, nous avons vu le mausolée de l’Aga Khan et le Old Cataract Hotel. C’est l’endroit où Agatha Christie a écrit à l’hôtel des extraits de son roman Mort sur le Nil. En outre, le film du roman de 1978 a été filmé à l’hôtel.

Em português:

O que ver num cruzeiro no Nilo?

Informação geral.

Em 2011, passamos uma semana de férias no cruzeiro do Nilo no Egito. Compramos um pacote com tudo incluído, incluindo voos entre Helsinque e Hurghada, transferências entre Aswan e Hurghada, todas as visitas a templos antigos, noites em um barco de cruzeiro com alimentos e bebidas.
Como foi! Impressionante. Todos os templos deixavam aos visitantes uma impressão inesquecível. Havia muito para ver e tirar fotos. Tirei 1926 fotos, das quais vou apresentar 361 em oito postagens! Visitamos esses templos: Carnaque, Luxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatsetsup, Colossos de Mêmnon.

O cruzeiro é como fazer uma viagem no tempo, viajando de volta à história por milhares de anos. O cenário muda lentamente e a vida ao longo das margens do Nilo parece ser lenta, sem pressa. De tempos em tempos, encontramos outros navios de cruzeiro; em terra, vimos bovinos, camelos, pescadores, barracos, destroços, palmeiras, montanhas distantes e, à medida que a noite avança, pôr do sol espetacular. A vida lenta continua em um barco de cruzeiro, comendo, bebendo, tomando banho de sol, admirando paisagens, descansando e nadando em uma piscina. As preocupações e os cuidados diários estão atrasados e é hora de aproveitar a vida. A mente está cheia da emoção de esperar para ver todos aqueles velhos templos.

Viagem de barco.

Uma de nossas lembranças inesquecíveis em Aswan foi uma viagem de barco. O passeio de barco começou em Aswan e seguiu em direção à vila núbia. Durante a viagem de barco, o Nilo nos mostrou lindas formações rochosas e grande quantidade de pássaros diferentes. Parecia que eles estavam acostumados a barcos. Paramos na casa dos crocodilos. Havia muitos camelos lá, mas a casa era muito interessante para mim. claro que sim, era uma armadilha para turistas, mas achei algo interessante para mim.

Nas paredes estavam penduradas pinturas bonitas. As muralhas dos prédios eram azul-turquesa e azul. Os quartos no interior eram rosa claro. Quando continuamos um pouco adiante do cruzeiro, chegamos à área e passeios de camelo. Os camelos eram verdadeiros “buscadores de atenção”. Foi uma grande alegria tirar fotos sobre eles. Minha esposa participou de um passeio de camelo e ainda hoje ela se orgulha por isso. Todos nós não somos heróis, mas somos heróis de nossas próprias vidas, mas somos heróis de nossas próprias vidas!!!

No caminho de volta, vimos o mausoléu de Aga Khan e o Old Cataract Hotel. É o local onde Agatha Christie estabeleceu partes de seu romance Morte no Nilo. Além disso, o filme do novel de 1978 foi filmado no hotel.

  1. Great photos again, and so much to see. Wonderful birds, I am certain – a holiday of a lifetime. I would be proud too sitting on a camel. They do look sweet. 🙂

    • Hello Ute.

      Thank you leaving your praising words. The camel on which my wife rode, was big. To descend from the back of the camel was cool looking, maybe too cool and due to that I didn’t show any photos of it. 🙂

      Have a wonderful day!

  21. I had a chance once to ride a camel here in Texas, but I wasn’t so brave to do so! I enjoyed all the pretty colors, and I was surprised to see so many bird species which we also have here. The black and white bird with the long pink legs is a black-necked stilt, and I think the one with the bright purple and blue feathers and the red beak and legs is a gallinule of some sort. It’s fun to see those natural connections that can be so unexpected. The boats are lovely, too. It’s good that they have sun shades — it’s obviously very bright there!

      Oh, thank you for your kind comments. I do not know birds, so thank you telling about them. This boat trip was a very nice “side hop” to show what Egypt offers than history! I am glad that you visited my site and loved my photos.

      Have a wonderful day!
