If you’re a motorist with a thirst for adventure, this might just be the ultimate.
The Cross Egypt Challenge, back this year after a COVID enforced cancellation in 2020, is arguably the best way to see the North African country beyond just the pyramids.
Spanning 2400km, the challenge is a 9-day motorcycle and scooter rally open to professional and amateur motorists alike.
The route starts in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, heading south to the capital, Cairo, before moving through the Western desert. It also takes in the Nile Valley, and Luxor, the capital of ancient Egypt and the largest open-air museum in the world.
