The Red Canyon walk is not long in duration, but will test your fitness nevertheless. It has some technical sections where permanent steel ladders have been placed to allow you to progress through the canyon. The whole experience is less than an hour, and best...More

The entrance to the Red Canyon is not easy to find. Our GPS can't really show us. But somehow we figure out. The day when we went there was nobody. Thankfully there are signs that lead to the canyon. It's a nice walk.

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.

If you can climb some stairs up and down, then you would probably be ok.

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

You can walk all day or you can just do the short loop, which is what most people do. It's probably 3km (1.8 miles) round trip? I'd guess 1-2 hours, depending on how fast you go. We did it with three small kids (4-7... More
