It is gorgeous! It’s better to combine a visit to the canyon with snorkeling in the Blue Hole. This tour includes visiting canyon, jeep safari, seaside camel riding, Bedouin lunch and snorkeling. You must be rather sportive. I would not recommend people with problems with heart, breath or feet. Tips: 1. Put on trousers, long sleeve shirt to protect skin,... More

Coloured Canyon is a slot canyon sculpted through iron-rich Sandstone of the Egyptian South Sinai region. A cohesive visual language of dynamic lines, random patterns and warm vibrant colours flows on the raw surface of the Canyon mountain..Extraordinary collage of nature’s elements drawing harmony, unity and variety in chaos. The trip can be arranged with a beduin from the Camp... More

A must see, very impressive. We booked an excursion to the Coloured Canyon, they took us from hotel with SUVs and drove to the canyon in the desert. The pity to see were names carved in the canyon by some Russians, you shouldn't do that with such unique nature monuments.

Well worth a visit. Very pretty layering of different color Sandstone in a desert canyon. Our visit was followed by a Bedouin lunch which is a must do experience.

We start the trip by a 4x4 car through sinai desert to visit the oasis of Ein Om Ahmed which is one of the main Tarabin oases in South Sinai, in the sand belt running from coast to coast under the Tih plateau along a main dirt road. There are many date palms and several plantations and the place has... More
