Over the moon trip

This area is so unique, wonderful and colorful. The nature is quite untouched, that's why trips are unforgettable there.

This hiking route is both pleasant and fun. The views are simply beautiful. If you have a car or can afford a taxi (no less than 25$ in each direction) this is a must! Not safe at night. This route is only safe in the morning or in the Fall-Spring season. Temperatures in May-mid December go as high as 40-55... More

Took family there today. Short drive from Eilat. Took lunch. Easy for our 11 year old but challenging in some parts. 2 hours in total of you do it slowly. Good chance to see the desert without venturing out too far. Highly recommended family activity.

One of the most beautiful sites. Great for rock scrambling. This is not simple hiking and you do need to be in somewhat good shape and be ready to deal with steep downhill and uphill climbs on rocks. But worth every minute.

I was in love with the Red Canyon, the highway is extremely good, the road is marked in order not to get lost, and the view is amazing. Worth every moment and i recommended .

We went on this hike with a 3, 6 and 8 year old. We did the loop trail (2 km) and it was perfect for the kids and for us. The ladders and climbing in the unique rock formations make the hike exciting. The terrain is easy and mostly shaded. It is a 25 minute drive out of Eilat and... More

Beautiful sandstone canyon. A short hike from a parking lot accessible to any type of vihacle. There are several hikes in the area. You visit the canyon only and backtrack back to your car. Alternatively you may choose a longer circuit and experience more if the desert. For the longer circuit a map is advisable.

We took a 3 hour tour with Shanti Jeep Safari (Luis) to the Red Canyon. He was superb and we all loved every minute of the trip. The canyon is beautiful and gives you the sense of stepping back in to biblical times... in fact the whole area does. Definitely worth doing, and definitely worth booking any tour of the... More

We had a wonderful 5km hike...the canyon itself is beautiful and the occasional ladder or rope kept the older kids engaged. We opted for the longer circle trail that brought us back to the car. Great time and highly recommended!
