We had a wonderful stay in Eilat – everything was great … Timna Park hiking and biking was simply exceptional even compared with the US Natural Parks we have visited (Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Brycce …).We rented bikes from Timna Park. To benefit from the biking, you need to have a good physical condition than you can really take an incredible... More

We had a great day out. Visiting the ancient copper mines was interesting. We did a little walking but there was loads more if we wanted to hike a little. The lake and centre was very nice and food was reasonably priced. There was also a film cleverly projected on a curved screen so it felt like it was 3D

We loved Timna Park, though it's a lot smaller then for example Wadi Rum in Jordan. The rock formations are amazing and the camping is decent of Israeli standards.

We (my wife and me) have very impressing experience. We had been about 40 years ago at Israel Timna Factory and now we found Timna History "The Ancient Copper Kingdom": kilometers of multifacet roads and desert mountains rare formations. Happily Lior Lev - from Mantis Tours - gave us 6 hours of enthusiastic guidance, driving, walking and photographing. He even... More

I never realized how much a dessert can feel depressing. As we traveled with our 16 month old we only visited The Arches (and the tourist trail around them from the Great Arch to the mines) and the lake. The trail around the Arches was perfect. The lake has a sort of artificial feeling (well, because it is artificial :)).... More

This is probably the most beautiful desert in the world. I came here in for short time and strongly feel the vibe of ancient time. It would be great to stay overnight. I will definitely be back!

We didn't have much time but decided to stop on our way out from Eilat. We were disappointed that the movie presentation didn't start until 10:00 and is only shown on the hour -- even though it's less than 15 minutes long -- we got there at opening, before the first show, then missed the 10:00 show and couldn't stay...

Park Timna is also known as "King Salomon Copper mines"/ This was the place where the first copper was found by the Eqyptians (much before King Salomon times) and where the copper age started. Also, Tima is a tremendously beautiful natural park, as well
