First thing to write is to remind visitors that the start of this hike is a full thirty minute drive from the northern end of Eilat. Take that into consideration when deciding on and planning a visit. There have not been incidents in years here, but the ride is adjacent to the Egyptian border. At one point, I passed an... More

There are 2 car parking areas with the first one being about 1 kilometre from start of trek. If you choose the 2nd car park, the drive is a little scary as it is a dirt road with very soft areas. I started walking the green (easiest) route but could not complete it as about half way I decided that... More

It's a short track, close to the city and yet giving you the feeling of the desert. The rocks are of real red color, a lot of shade in the canyon (important almost all year round!) and the desert around...

A very nice and interesting experience for both mature and families with children. Not so hard walking along the canyon with its desert view.

Upon entering, you will surely be picked up from the mailbox map sidewalks. It's a wonderful place to delight the eye and spirit. It's not a difficult hike, I recommend it for families with children, only you'd better take along drinking more water.

Great hiking trail of Red Canyon is about 15 miles from Eilat and you can combine the trip with Timna. If you have a car take Route 12 out of Eilat . The Red Canyon hike is beautiful and not difficult. Makes you think about hiking in Utah.

Wonderland starts not in the canyon itself, it starts right as you divert from the highway! Route to the parking is amazing, track to the canyon is unforgettable as well as plants along the track. As you enter the canyon, you will be amazed how many red hues exists. The best part is blue track which takes you above the... More

This hike throough the red canyon was amazing. Did not plan on doing it but so happy we did. The family loved it. Can be a quick hike or as long as you want to make it. Not too challenging as I did it with a full cast on my are. But a lot f fun
