Very nice marked path to walk, offers some challenging spots aswell but nothing you cant do with kids. Alot of animals and fossils can be found in this area. We went there whole family at late afternoon. Midday is too hot usually.

Possibly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Strongly recommend for people who like nature, especially deserts. It truly exemplifies the beauty of the desert (Ein Gedi doesn't count since it is an oasis), we even saw some ibex! I went in...More

There’s not many place around Eilat to visit. So I recommend to go to the Red Canyon because that’s nice place, good for short trip out of town. You can get there by City Bus for a few shekels. The trail is short, about 3...More

There are parts that require a fit adult. The Park just north of Eilat , Timna, is a better alternative as you can drive your car to approx 7 locations that you can walk to and view... including the famous King Solomon’s... More
