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.

  • During a family celebration event added, after a walk in the Park, group activities on the challenges. The specified service already started. We listen, help in selecting the desired effect and personal support. Adrian who conducted the activity itself went out of his way to combine all members of which included 16 to 82 members. additional activities added to short-term and extended beyond the allotted time. The whole family enjoyed. The visit, which included a trip to the natural sites in the park followed by group activities became an experience that will be remembered for a long time.

  • 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.
  • Awesome park, a little pricey though. Everything inside the park is far away (you need a car). Can see everything within 3 hours if fast. Plan for more if you want to explore.
  • Quite beautiful, with great sights and few hiking trails to boot. Admission ticket is valid for 3 days, and rightly so - park itself is quite expansive. However, maps handed at the ticket station and provided at different sites can be misleading.
