What you can expect

The twin temples at Abu Simbel are two of the best-preserved and most awe-inspiring of ancient Egypt. Discover them with a quick and convenient plane ride from Aswan. See the towering statues of Ramses II and his queen as you learn about their intriguing repositioning in the last century.

Enjoy a swift take-off via plane from Aswan, then arrive close to the shores of Lake Nasser. Arriving at the temple site, marvel at the colossal statues guarding the entrances. Walk through the impressive façade into the Great Temple’s interior – images and carvings depicting ancient deities adorn the walls. Observe too the Small Temple, also hewn into the mountain-face that stands in honour or Queen Nefertari – Ramses II’s chief consort.

Learn about the temples’ dramatic relocation: With the construction of the High Aswan Dam, these and others like them would have been lost under the Nile’s flood waters when Lake Nasser was created. Costing over 6 million pounds sterling, this substantial challenge was expertly executed, so you can still enjoy the temples’ majesty in all their preserved glory.
