* Coloured Canyon

Excursions to the Coloured Canyon are among the most common from the resorts Dahab and Nuweiba. Although definitely worth the effort, the experience is more and more destroyed by the sheer crowds. It is hard to suggest a good time of the day to visit, as you really come here only as part of a group.


The Coloured canyon

The Coloured canyon has its name from the layers of bright, multicoloured stones across the steep, narrow walls. The patterns are made from a mixture of sandstone and limestone, with coloures from pink to brown and from yellow to green. The canyon is experienced by walking through it from either direction.

The program:

Feiran is also the Site of Rafadim, the fabled oasis where the Hebrews camped and battled the Amelecites. For the pilgrims and believers who have been coming to this wadi for centuries, a journey through Feiran is to pass through an entire chapter of the Old Testament itself, Exodus 17.

Serabit el Khadim

Serabit el-Khadem) is a locality in the south-west Sinai Peninsula where turquoise was mined extensively in antiquity, mainly by the ancient Egyptians. Archaeological excavation, initially by Sir Flinders Petrie, revealed the ancient mining camps and a long-lived Temple of Hathor, the Egyptian goddess who was favoured as a protector in desert regions. Fewer than thirty incised graffiti in a "Proto-Sinaitic script" found in the temple have made Serabit el-Khadim famous among students of the history of the alphabet. The mines were worked by prisoners of war from southwest Asia who presumably spoke a Northwest Semitic language, such as the that was ancestral to and Hebrew.

Forest of Pillars

The name Forest of Pillars comes from the tubular columns of black lava that are driven up like many stalagmites from the surrounding rock, made up from reddish-yellow sandstones. This place is one of the most intriguing geological oddities in the Sinai.

We start at 08:00 and drive for three hours to Wadi Feiran. This is the oldest oasis the Sinai, where Moses struck his staff on the ground to provide water for the Israelites.

We will then continue to Serabit el Khadim where we will have dinner and spend the night under the stars or in one of the Bedouin camps. The next day we will climb for about two hours to see the Hathor Temple.
