Indy is back! Hollywood’s most handsome archeologist has returned for one last adventure in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023), so we wanted to take a look at some of the coolest locations explored by Dr Jones over the years, all of which you can visit with Culture Trip.

Cairo, from Raiders of the Lost Ark

Let’s go back to where it all started, and you can understand why Lucas and Spielberg chose Egypt as the focal point of their first archeological adventure epic. A lot of the filming was actually done in Tunisia, but much of the most iconic scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) take place in Cairo, as well as the archeological site of Tanis. You can follow in the footsteps of Indy, Marion and Sallah on our eight-day Egypt trip by experiencing the chaos of Khan Al-Khalili bazaar first hand – luckily you won’t be chased by sword-wielding henchmen in the process. You’ll also channel your inner-Indy by exploring the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the ancient temples of Luxor, Karnak and Kom Ombo. Other destinations featured in Raiders include Nepal and an unnamed Greek island where the film’s horrifying climax takes place.
