Day 5 :
 After you've boarded the ship and the anchor is lifted the Dahabiya will glide silently across the Nile. The first stop is 15km down the Nile at El-Kab. This was once a glorious city, but is now a city of ruins and rubble and a reasonably intact city wall. After you've had a chance to look around, you'll return to the ship and your Nile sailing tour will continue on to a small island for the night.

After breakfast sailing Edfu the ship's crew will throw out the anchor and you'll visit the best preserved cult temple in Egypt. The monumental temple of Horus, built in honour of the God with the falcon's head, is easily as impressive as the world famous temple of Karnak in Luxor. After visiting the temple you'll continue on to the town of Wadi El Shat where you'll walk through the tropical gardens and countryside. At the end of the day you'll spend the night on the Dahabiya.

After breakfast the Dahabiya will set sail along the Nile again. It's white sail will snap in the wind until it's found the right angle and the canvas catches wind. After a while the ship will moor at the excavation site 'Gebel El Silsila' and the temple of Pharaoh Horemheb. You can also visit an ancient stone quarry where colossal stones were cut out for the temple of Karnak. After lunch on board the ship you'll sail on to one of the highlights of this Nile sailing tour, the majestic temples of Haroeris and Sobek at Kom Ombo. Candles will be lit and you'll have your own candlelight dinner on an island in the middle of the Nile...

Remarks  
The Dahabiya requires a gentle breeze to allow it to sail and generally this breeze travels in a southerly direction, Luxor to Aswan. When, commonly, there is no northerly breeze, a tugboat is brought in to pull the Dahabiya for stretches of the journey. If you would like to sail for the entire time, then we would advise you to take the Luxor to Aswan route.
