Retreats in Egypt
With the mighty River Nile, towering temples and sand-covered tombs, Egypt brings out the explorer in all of us. The Egyptian retreat we have reviewed and recommend is guaranteed to take you on a voyage of self-discovery, in the most unusual way. Based in Dahab (the Arabian word for gold), on the south-east coast of the Sinai Peninsula, and 50 miles from the tourist hotspots of Sharm el-Sheikh, our life-changing retreat in Egypt caters for everyone, from the active and adventurous to peace seekers wanting to escape the merry-go-round of their lives back home. Go scuba and free diving and explore the depths – both of the sea and your own potential. Above the waves there’s windsurfing and kitesurfing. Go trekking or horse-riding or join a jeep and camel safari. You can even go sand dune surfing in the desert. But if thrill-seeking isn’t your thing and it’s peace and quiet you’re after, you’re also in the right place. The silence of the desert will heal you. You’ll love the light and space of the mountains. Practise kundalini yoga and meditation with expert practitioners, book some sessions with bodywork therapists or spend some time with healers and work on issues troubling your soul.
