Visit Timna Park for a rare glimpse of the marvels of ancient engineering coupled with natural desert beauty. The park spans 6,070 hectares (15,000 acres) and includes a host of unusual geological formations like naturally eroded arches and columns. Also within its borders, you can view ancient mining techniques used in the area since as early as the 10th century BCE, when Edomites extracted the resource for use in decorations and weaponry. In addition to touring the premises, you can arrange to rent bikes in the park, camp there overnight, or take pedal boats out on the lake.

  • The power to recommend the trek-anyone can do it an average able-bodied individual. You can choose from several routes that you choose in the visitor centre, or just drive around from one to the other prospects. Views that have been offered are breath taking.

  • Nice Park, take 1 day Nov his visit ... But don't go here during the summer, since summer in Eilat for 40 and in the desert is not very comfortable ...

  • Timna Valley may be a family attraction, but it comes to tourists seeking to get to avoid kidnapping visit Valley on the way to Eilat accommodation, views, climb to the rock carving and continue after half an hour of admission rate of $49 we stand in relation to return compared to other tourism sites in Israel.

  • Park was awesome. Entry ticket lasts for 3 days. Kids loved it. Favorite part was exploring the ancient mine shafts. Restaurant was decent as well. Will visit again. Landscape was amazing.
  • This place is easy to get from Eilat with a car. You may enter a park with a car and explore spectacular views and find awesome hikes for hikers of different levels. Staff here is very kind and park guide gives you tips what to visit depending on your needs. We took 4 hours in this park with a car, however it is easy to spend here whole day if you will try longer hikes.
  • Super great experience. Beautiful hacking routes and breathtaking views. For the price you can get into with your car and drive there, have unlimited herbal tea, very delicious, especially after several hours on fresh air. They also demonstrate short film about park in the cinema. Local adventurer will answer all your questions. Price for 2 adults with car was around 40 usd.
  • If you are driving, Timna Park is a gem. The scenery is exceptional and it is easy to spent a complete day here. There are many places to hike and many ancient treasures to explore. As it is not the ruins of some ancient civilisations, the beauty of nature is retained. Timna was a mine for metal ore until they convert it to a national park. It is worth visiting the place.
  • Great experience! However, we needed more time to visit. 4 hours is not enough! The objectives are very far one from the other. A car is mandatory in order to go from one objective to the other.
