What to Expect
Enjoy a comfortable flight to Abu Simbel and discover the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn how the gigantic rock temple of Ramses the Great was cut out of the rock during the construction of the Aswan High Dam and relocated to a safe place later on.
The temple was even positioned in such a way that the miracle of the sun seen in the past can be experienced even today. Twice a year, on the equinox, the rays of the sun fall into the sanctuary and illuminate the four statues of the gods Ptah, Amun, Re, and Ramses.
Discover the thousand-year-old hieroglyphs and petroglyphs in the large and small temples, and immerse yourself in the history of Egypt.
