Red Canyon, Eilat

4.7
#5 of 17 in Parks in Eilat
Canyon Nature / Park
Enjoy a fairly challenging hike through the narrow, picture-perfect red gorge of Red Canyon. Observe the scenic desert foliage and an array of wildlife as you work your way towards the peak. You'll notice that the iconic red sandstone, in some cases millions of years old, changes color subtly throughout the day. You’ll find that, refreshingly, there are no signs of civilization in sight, giving you the feeling that you are wandering in the middle of the wilderness. Be aware that the hike requires you to climb occasionally, and includes narrow spaces only a few meters wide. Before you head to Eilat, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Eilat itinerary planner, to make sure you see all that Eilat has to offer, including Red Canyon.

  • Of course, this is not the Grand Canyon or Red Canyon in Vegas, but it is worth a visit. especially if you are tired of the monotony of the beach of Eilat. But you need to consider the time visiting-not in the heat, and the best in the morning or in the evening. And need, though minimal, but physical training. And be sure to bring water and protection from the Sun. All the beautiful experiences!

  • super nice rocks, super nice trails. Must go hiking trail in israel. We hiked through the easiest trail that took about an hour. It is very fun. Admire while you walk the vastness of these place. Amazing
  • 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.
  • WOW! Beautiful place. The hike is very short but a bit challenging with steep ladders. Very recommended for families.
  • Great place to visit on the way to Eilat( proximetly 1.5 hours which is perfect for kids 5-14)
  • Beautiful scenery. The drive from Eilat is spectacular and makes the adventure even more worthwhile. A great way to spend time outdoors.
