Sail from Esna to Edfu:
We begin our morning with a 6 hour daytime sail from Esna to Edfu. We will spend the morning and the afternoon aboard the boat lounging on the sundeck and watching the banks of the Nile pass by. Upon our arrival we will dock in Edfu.
Temple of Horus:
In the early evening, as the sun is setting, we will be picked up by horse carriages for a ride to the Temple of Edfu dedicated to the falcon god Horus, son of Isis and Osiris. We will be arrive to a candle lit temple for a 2 hour private experience in the temple.
The Temple of Horus is one of the best preserved temples of its time, built during the Ptolemaic rule. This temple honors and celebrates the legendary battle between Horus and Set, Osiris and Isis’ brother. Here you will find important scenes and inscriptions of this Sacred Drama.
This temple also preserves information about the mythical interpretation and other temples as this being the Island of Creation.
After this special and mystical journey, we will head back to the boat for an overnight dock in Edfu.
