Red Canyon, Eilat
(4.6/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • If you have a car, I do recommend that you visit this place. It is near the Egypt boarder and easy to get to by car. Once you arrive you will see a parking slot which would have maps of the Red Canyon...  more »
  • אחד ממקומות ההליכה סביב אילת שמוגדרים כחובה! קניון מדהים (למי שלא חושב על קניות)... לקחת בחשבון בילוי בהליכה של חצי יום עד יום תלוי כמה רחוק תלכו בקניון 
  • A very varied and fascinating world of rocks. You no longer comes out of the vision and wonder! Good road signs with time intervals. A great experience!

  • 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
