Discover Egypt is offering travellers the chance to experience some of the lesser known areas of Egypt, with a seven-night package Lake Nasser and Aswan.

It starts with four nights on a cruise of Lake Nasser on the Steigenberger Omar El Khayam, which cruises from Aswan to Abu Simbel, offering guests the opportunity to explore the great temples, as well as enjoying the facilities of the ship with its ‘turn of the century luxury’. The final two nights are spent at the five-star Movenpick Aswan Resort located on Elephantine Island, a short motor launch trip from the centre of the city.

Aswan is Egypt’s southernmost town and there is plenty to do see and do including visiting the Unfinished Obelisk, the High Dam and the Granite Quarries. The company's 'must-do' recommendations is a felucca cruise around the small islands and cataracts of the Nile, with other recommendations including visiting the Nubian Museum or taking a stroll down the busy Corniche bordering the Nile.

Prices lead in at £1,499 per person including flights from Heathrow, bed-and-breakfast accommodation in Aswan, the full board cruise on Lake Nasser, plus all taxes and transfers. It is based on two sharing and is valid until September.
