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.
This was the first time I went on a marked hike and we went at noon. Yeah. But there were shady spots so it turned out ok. We followed what someone else on TA did- blue track then black track, then came back with green...More
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
We drove about 30min north of Eilat, right by the Egyptian border, to the entrance way to the Red Canyon.
At the parking lot you’ll find leaflets with the information and the diferent routes.
The first one brings you to the Red Canyon: spectacular experience...More
The formation and the color of the rocks are amazing. Love the definition of the rocks! It is true the Red Canyon cannot be compared with the Grand Canyon in the US in terms of size. But the Red Canyon is equally significant and magnificent...More
Red Canyon is only a short drive from Eilat and an easy but interesting hike. First there is open desert, but as you continue the path winds down into some rock face and eventually you descend down into the narrow and smooth canyons. It is...More
We thought it will be a longer walk so after Red Canyon we took longer path to go back and we was satisfied.
Views are really nice and it is also good for a walk with children. Remember about water! :)
For sure everyone must...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
I took the bus #392 from Eilat and got off at "the red canyon" bus stop. From there it took about 25 minutes to walk to the parking lot. The trail started there. There was a box with maps that is helpful to find out...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

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
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) slowly. Probably 3 hours. There are a few places where you use ladders (metal steps or hand holds placed in the rock) to help you up or down. You can return along the rim of the canyon which takes you close to the cliff edge and can be steep in places. Returning the way you came, through the canyon is easier, though you might encounter lots of school groups coming, as you'd be going against the usual traffic. It's a little difficult but not really.
