Natural Tour - Felucca

Program   1  2  3

What is felucca?
Felucca is a sea-craft, made to a traditional design, with broad canvas sails. Essentially, the craft is reliant on wind-power with no motor, and the dependent upon the wind factor to propel forth. The craft carries between 5-10 passengers comfortably.

What is the route and how long it takes?
Feluccas cruise from picturesque Aswan through Kom Ombo to Edfu, taking in some stops at points of interest en-route with various stops, planned or impromptu. Felucca trips take 2 nights. They can be combined with other tours.

What facilities do feluccas offer?
The peaceful routine of life aboard allows us to escape the stress of everyday life. All meals are included in the cruise and cooked on board by the crew. Accommodation is on the cushioned boat deck itself. During day trips you sit on padded benches at the edges of the boat with your legs resting inward towards the centre. On overnight trips the felucca is transformed into a ‘floating hotel”. Wooden boards are placed across the felucca’s centre to make a deck on which mattresses are placed to make a comfortable platform from which to lay back and watch the river-banks pass by. There are no toilet facilities on board. You can use the toilets provided at the sites you visit during the day, at night you are moored by the riverbank and will need to find somewhere onshore.

  • Sleeping bag or sheet or blanket,
  • Sun lotion,
  • Towels,
  • Cotton T-Shirts,
  • Bug spray,
  • Toilet paper and sanitary products,
  • Torch,
