This is a good trip to see a more natural Egypt. The canyons are quite good, although the rock markings are not as spectacular as you would think. Its a long day and if you have any kind of circulation or leg problems, its probably not a good idea. We had 8 adults in the back of our land rover... More

I was staying in Dhab with my wife and 2 kids, and has been wanting to visit the Colored Canyon for a year now. I finally found what I wanted. It was about 90 minutes drive from Dahab, of which 30 minutes are into the desert. then you start your hiking for almost 2 hours, not that exhausting though, my... More

I was staying in Dahab and with a couple of friends decided to go on this excursion! The weather was lovely but it gets very windy before you get down into the canyon :) Its a beautiful day out and 100% worth doing. From dahab it takes around an hour to get the the canyons but its very fun driving... More

Not only you are in Sinai, but you get to visit such a powerful place. And by powerful I mean it. The colored canyon is a beautiful spot to hike, lovely rock formations to see and stunning colours that makes you think about the greatness of Mother Nature

We did a day trip to the Coloured Canyon with SharmExcursions.com. The canyon is spectacular and definitely worth a visit. Sensible foot wear is highly recommended as there is some climbing to do. Climbing up and down the rocks gave us all a good laugh as some of us had to be helped with this feet. It was fabulous scenery... More

Came here for a brief visit whilst spending new year in Sharm - outstanding scenery that has to be seen to be believed. Travelling in a convoy has to be endured if you want to see any of this area, but well worth the slight inconvenience. Can be a bit challenging having to clamber over rocks and up and down... More

A great place to be visited, you will enjoy the colored stones and mountains. Also, the small green plants there. If you will be there in summer, you must take plenty of water and juices because it is very hot there.
