Egypt & Umrah – A Once in a Lifetime Journey

$ 2,500

Enjoy this once in a lifetime adventure that spans civilizations. For the very first time, Arkanum Adventures offers to the market this unique blend. Egypt’s attractions cannot be found elsewhere: from the bustling Cairo streets, Snowboarding the dunes of Fayoum, to snorkelling near the coral reefs in the Red Sea, Egypt is synonymous with adventure. We’ll also visit the Pyramids – one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Coming to Mecca to perform Umrah is often described by Muslims as a life changing experience. The moment they first lay eyes on the Kaaba is an overwhelmingly emotional experience. Medina (the city of the Prophet) is where the prophet was given refuge after being exiled from Mecca. Here he lived, built his mosque, fought pivotal battles, and it’s where he was finally laid to rest.

All about the Egypt & Umrah – A Once in a Lifetime Journey.

Egypt is a land that invites you to experience the thrill of discovery! The many monuments and artifacts that reveal its ancient history are impressive and mysterious. The country’s vast desert, beautiful Nile and coastal seas are full of surprises.

In the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, you will find stone tombs of ancient pharaohs. Cairo is where you can soak up the richness of Islamic culture and where the antiquities of the Egyptian Museum will amaze you. You will be awed by what was long ago honored as sacred or considered mundane, including the various temples along the Nile, the masterpiece of Ramses II at Abu Simbel near Lake Nasser, and the remains of Roman trading outposts in the desert.

The Red Sea can be explored in a single day or several days. Deep diving and snorkeling the coral reefs are especially memorable activities.

I’m so glad I got an opportunity to go on such an amazing trip, It gave me the chance to try so many new things, and get to know a lot of great people. I really like how Ark Adventures trips always have both really fun activities and spiritual aspects built into them, especially this trip. I think it’s a really good balance that’s unique to Arkanum. I hope I get a chance to go on Arkanum’s next trip.

I’ll always remember this trip. I love randomly going through my camera roll and reliving all the moments - the plane rides, sunrises, pyramids, horse-back riding, pottery making, desert safari vids, pictures with the boys overlooking Cairo, and everything in between. Every moment was unique and special, and if you ever come across the opportunity to go on a trip like this, do it. Life is too short, seize those life-changing experiences. Thanks to everyone who made the trip what it was, teens, mentors, tour guides, and hopefully we’ll gather again for another one.
