See the wonders of the seemingly endless sand with a guided tour of Great Sand Sea. The 7.2 hectare (18 acre) stretch of dunes creates the feeling of waves when you ride across them. You can also see several hot and cold springs in the middle of the desert, as well as a salt lake. If you're feeling adventurous, try out the sandboarding.

  • The best way to get the most out of the Siwa desert and its amazing dunes will be to take a high-speed guided tour in a 4x4 jeep. Trust me, you won't regret it. Pure Adrenaline! Fantastic spot for a sunset. If you can, try the sandsurf yet.
