Red Canyon, Eilat

Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
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.

  • את המסלול הקצר אפשר לסיים בכשעה. הולכים בתוך הנחל ורואים נוף מדהים של הרים אדומים. The shortest route takes about an hour. Walking inside the river and see amazing views of red mountain. 
  • It was a surprisingly beautiful way in the Red Canyon near Eilat, lasted about an hour, but there was also a possibility to go a longer trail. The Red Canyon is only reachable by car and is free of charge. The No. 12 Eilat Street North leads over there. You will see a sign where you have to turn off and on the gravel away to the car park (free of charge) continue. A must for Eilat visitors!
