Red Canyon, Eilat

(4.6/5 based on 280+ 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. 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.

  • Great place. Not like anything else. With the entire route to go. Failed. But all were satisfied

  • 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....  more »
  • What is the force you can see right here. How wide Riverbed turns into a narrow gorge and water trying to find your way. Surprising place.

  • Must go when visiting Eilat. Very accessible canyon. Tip: try late afternoon or early morning lighting conditions.
  • Must see if you are visiting Eilat. Whole walk will take approximately 2 hours, but it is definitely worth it. Amazing scenery and fantastic feeling to go through the canyon.
  • Great place near of the Eilat. There are 2 round tracks. Short one can be done with a small children. Other one is 2-2.5 hours long and it is very attractive and not so hard.
  • It is fantastic view early in the morning, but be careful, road to parking is quite bad
  • Beautiful place
