Road Trippin’ In Egypt
Despite its endearing character, Cairo can be toxic and sometimes, all you want to do is escape from the hustle and stress of the city to your favorite weekend destination.
The beauty of being in Egypt is that there is a wealth of places to explore and they are all just a road trip away. All you have to do is pack up your car and hit the road.
We picked four of the country’s most popular destinations that are just a quick ride away from Egypt’s urban centers. We also chose some essential items to take with you to make the most of each trip, imagining them packed up in the all-new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.
Fayoum is only a couple of hours away from Egypt’s capital, making it a go-to destination for a short escape. A few nights sleeping under the stars, camping in the desert is the perfect way to unplug from the city and repair your frayed nerves.
If you’re looking for more adrenaline, go kayaking and hiking and give those sand dunes a good bashing while you’re at it!
Sa7el isn’t just about teenagers and late night parties. With the plethora of activities available for all ages, the North Coast is ideal for family bonding time.
Impart your love of outdoor activities to your kids and take them biking on the beach. Hide the remote and instead, stage water wars, build sandcastles, throw barbecues. By the end of the weekend, none of you will want to leave.
Sinai, with its rugged mountain ranges, azure waters and downtempo vibe, is a must-go getaway for those looking to soothe their souls.
Known for being home to some of Egypt’s most unique music festivals, it’s a particular favorite for music lovers. You’ll hear spontaneous jam sessions erupting all around you, from the beaches to the seaside cafes, and tunes flowing from every hut and chalet.
With Sinai’s world-class wind conditions, it’s also a magnet for wind and kite surfers looking to catch some serious air.
Once you’ve had a taste of what the peninsula has to offer, you won’t be able to stay away and will spend your weekdays daydreaming of returning with your own equipment in hand.
If you’re heading to Hurghada – or anywhere that touches the Red Sea – diving is a must, even for beginners. Visibility is impeccable, currents are tranquil and the sealife is abundant. You’ll feel like you’re swimming in an aquarium – or another world.
Don’t forget to take your Go Pro kit along, because the beauty of the Red Sea’s extraordinary reefs is something you’ll want to capture for a lifetime.
WE SAID THIS: Don’t miss The Type of Car I Would Buy in Egypt.
