If you’re feeling a little adventurous, why not try a spot of scuba diving or snorkelling in the beautiful Red Sea. Discover an underwater world of coral reefs and exotic fish on one of Sharm’s many scuba diving excursions.

Relax and soak up the sun on the open top boat between dives and enjoy a traditionally prepared Egyptian lunch on board.

The thrill-seekers among you may want to try your hand at quad biking through the picturesque desert landscape.

Usually available to children aged 6 and over, quad biking is a great family trip for the slightly older children and is an experience you’ll never forget.

Star Gazing

Perhaps the most unusual of Sharm’s excursions, star gazing offers an unforgettable evening. Begin your adventure with a camel ride through the desert to reach the tent/campsite hosted by the Bedouin tribe.

There you’ll be offered herbal tea and authentic Bedouin cuisine by the campfire. As the sun goes down, the tribe begin the festivities with group dances and traditional music. After darkness falls, you can take turns looking through the telescopes while your guide explains which beautiful stars and planets you’re seeing. This is one excursion not to be missed.
