Looking for something more leisurely? Check into the Iberotel Palace in Sharm El Sheikh for a unique family holiday. Lounge by the hotel’s two freshwater pools or head to the private beach. Watch the kids snorkel and swim from the lounge chairs, or head out with them discovering vibrant coral reefs and marine life.

 

Off the beaten path and away from the beach is a desert terrain prime for four-wheel riding. The vast western desert of the Siwa Oasis provides incredible views of an ancient city within an expansive desert. Tour through ancient temples and history scattered over the Oasis.

 

The old town of Shali in Siwa Oasis is an ideal setting for riders to explore the rugged territory and watch the sun set over the sandy horizon. Strap on your helmets and bond with your teens and adult children, tearing through the sandy, historic and exquisite landscape.
