Unforgettable Motorcycle Tour Egypt

Cross World Challenges invites you to join this scooter motorcycle tour to explore the land of the Pharaohs in Egypt. With sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids, and towering Pharaonic temples, Egypt brings out the explorer in all of you. Egypt is rich with temples, soaring lotus-bud columns, enormous stone portals laced with delicate carvings, elaborate underground tombs, windswept desert monasteries, and richly decorated mosques. However, as extraordinary as these sights are, they will probably not be the things that linger in your memory after you return home. It is exploring them from the back of a scooter, from the Mediterranean feel of Alexandria to the electric pace of Cairo to the timelessness of desert villages that is unforgettable. So, don't hesitate to join.

Program

Cross World Challenges' adventure scooter tour not only gives you the opportunity to explore this magnificent country on two wheels but also allows you to experience the Egyptian culture first hand and explore destinations and routes that normal tourists don't get to explore.

You will start from Alexandria, head east to reach the beautiful and green city of Ismailia on the shores of the Red Sea then go south along the Red Sea Riviera, and make stops at El Gouna and Marsa Alam. After camping by the beach in Marsa Alam, you will then head west to cross the Egyptian Eastern Desert - one of the most challenging deserts on the face of the planet due to its rock formation and high mountain range - to reach the Nile valley and the city of Aswan. From Aswan, you will head North to reach the old city of Luxor, the capital of ancient Egypt and the largest open-air museum in the world then make one more stop at Minya before the final leg of the tour takes place between Minya and Cairo to end the challenge under the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Day 1: Arrival and orientation meeting

It is recommended to arrive a day or two days earlier to relax and enjoy some sightseeing around Cairo or Alexandria. Cross World Challenges will pick you up from Cairo International Airport (CAI) or Borg El Arab International Airport (HBE) and transfer you to the hotel. Arrive in Cairo or Alexandria. At noon, you will get to meet your fellow riders as you attend the orientation meetings and get everything you need to know about this tour. You will receive your welcome package, T-shirts and tour guidebook during the meetings.

Day 2: Alexandria to Ismailia (340 kilometers / 212 miles)

You will start early in the morning from Alexandria and head towards the green city of Ismailia. The first day of the tour, Cross World Challenges is usually escorted by different motorcycle and scooter clubs from Alexandria where they share the road to the first destination. Lunch will be served on the road as well as refreshments and water.

Day 3: Ismailia to El Gouna (450 kilometers / 280 miles)

You will start from Ismailia and make your way south down the Red Sea Riviera to the upscale resort city of El Gouna. Spend your afternoon wandering around the city, laying on the beach, swimming in the pool, or practicing kitesurfing.

Day 4: El Gouna to Marsa Alam (290 kilometers / 181 miles)

Ride further south to reach the small city of Marsa Alam, one of the best-rated diving spots in the world with its beautiful reefs and rich sea life. You will camp in an upscale camp by the sea where you can enjoy a lazy day on the beach or rent some diving equipment and explore the underwater life.

Day 5: Rest day in Marsa Alam

A lazy day in this beautiful destination will allow you to take a diving course, enjoy the beach, or just go on one of the many optional tours offered.

Day 6: Marsa Alam to Aswan (390 kilometers / 243 miles)

Interesting day is ahead of you as departing the Red Sea to head east and cross the Egyptian Eastern Desert, one of the toughest deserts on the surface of the planet due to its rock formations and mountain range. You will be lucky to witness wandering camels and other wildlife as you cross the desert. As you reach the other edge, you will be welcomed by the green Nile valley and the laid-back city of Aswan. Spend the evening taking a stroll around town or enjoy a felucca (sailing boat) down the Nile.

Day 7: Aswan to Luxor (240 kilometers / 150 miles)

As you will ride up north to reach the city of Luxor, the capital of ancient Egypt and the largest open-air museum in the world, you will witness a great change of scenery from green to yellow to green again. Luxor is known for its wealth of monuments and its lush green farms.

Day 8: Rest day in Luxor

A rest day in this great destination is a highlight where you can visit the temples of Karnak, Luxor Temple, or Valley of the Kings, or take a hot air balloon ride over the city.

Day 9: Luxor to Minya (450 kilometers / 280 miles)

Heading back from Luxor to Cairo, you will make one last stop in the city of Minya where you can experience suburban Egyptian life as you sit at a coffee shop in the middle of town to watch life go by.

Day 10: Minya to Cairo (315 kilometers / 196 miles)

The last leg of the tour takes place between Minya and Cairo where this tour ends in the most sacred place in Egypt, under the Great Pyramid of Giza.
