Red Canyon, Eilat

4.7
Enjoy a fairly challenging hike through the narrow, picture-perfect red gorge of Red Canyon. Observe the scenic desert foliage and an array of wildlife as you work your way towards the peak. You'll notice that the iconic red sandstone, in some cases millions of years old, changes color subtly throughout the day. You’ll find that, refreshingly, there are no signs of civilization in sight, giving you the feeling that you are wandering in the middle of the wilderness. Be aware that the hike requires you to climb occasionally, and includes narrow spaces only a few meters wide.

  • Very beautiful views of rather unique landscapes. We took the "green" easy trail, which is reasonably easy and made safe for adults. There are handgrips sealed in the rocks to make it safely...  more »

  • Walking through the red canyon is a fantastic experience. It is not difficult to get through unless you had some kind of mobility problems. I really recommend continuing onto some of the other walks in the area when you get to the end of the canyon, they are just as beautiful!
  • One of the most charming and breath taking area I visited during my stay in Israel. I was there with my family, and my mother was a true hero as some parts of the canyon can certainly called adventurous; there is a bit climbing and hight included.
