Luxor

A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Avenue of Sphinxes and Tomb of Ramses III. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Tomb of Ramses VI and Medinet Habu. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Tomb of Merenptah, get answers to all your questions at ACE - Animal Care in Egypt, contemplate the long history of Valley of the Artisans (Deir el-Medina), and pause for some photo ops at Obelisk of Thutmoses I.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, use the Luxor trip planner.

Reykjavik, Iceland to Luxor is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Reykjavik to Luxor is 2 hours.
