Egypt is a country with a rich history and exciting places to explore. Here, you can visit the famous pyramids, and many visitors love to swim in the clear waters of the Red Sea. Egypt boasts beautiful beaches and comfortable hotels where you can dine at a variety of restaurants. If you enjoy diving or snorkeling, the Red Sea is a fantastic place with colorful coral reefs and a variety of fish.
Egypt is a budget-friendly destination, especially during the winter. Almena offers great prices on flights and hotels, and many hotels offer All-Inclusive packages. If you're interested in jewelry and silver, you'll find excellent prices here. You can also haggle for items like shoes, clothing, and spices when shopping in the markets.
Egypt is sunny almost all year round, but it gets particularly hot in the summer, especially from June to September when temperatures can reach up to 36°C. The most pleasant time to visit is between November and April when daytime temperatures range from 23-30°C, and evenings are comfortable. Additionally, Egypt is only one hour ahead of Sweden during the winter, so you won't experience jetlag!
To enter Egypt, you'll need a visa that you can purchase when booking your trip. The visa costs around 270 SEK, and you'll receive it upon landing at the airport. Swedish citizens don't need to apply in advance – everything is taken care of at the airport upon arrival. Remember that your passport must be valid for at least six months after your departure from Egypt!
