Siwa Oasis

Siwa is a charming urban oasis. This desert sanctuary may be off the beaten path, but the effort it takes to get there is well worth it. As soon as you arrive, you will feel as if you have stepped into a completely different world with serene, picturesque landscapes and a unique North African culture. Crisp Siwa air, winding village streets, therapeutic salt lakes, multicolored sunsets, and fertile ground full of glittering palms and olive trees make visiting this destination an unforgettable experience.

Spend your days soaking in hot springs, floating on crystal-clear and shockingly blue salt lakes, and exploring fascinating ruins and archaeological sites that date back to the Ptolemaic and Roman periods. Travel beyond the town limits and you’ll find yourself in the awe-inspiring Great Sand Sea where you can jump, climb, and glide on towering sand dunes.
