One of the unmissable places to visit when in Eilat. It's a bit off the city (around 30 minutes drive) and it is a world apart - silent, dramatic, and overall incredibly beautiful. Worth going.

The Red Canyon is relatively small - only a few hundred metres long - but very photogenic. The red sandstone rises up to 30 metres high here, A circular route on foot will take a little more than an hour to complete and you should be in relatively good shape since climbing requires you to use hand and footholds at certain points. Go very early in the morning in the summer if you intend to hike through the canyon, because the temperatures here are insane and you wouldn't want to be touching those handholds in the heat of the day! To get here, it's best to rent a car or you could try your hand at hitchhiking - be warned, it seems that not many people pass this way and the last time we had to pick up a very thirsty hitchhiker! Apparently, he took a bus to the canyon but buses are not frequent. Another thing to note would be that the canyon is located very deep in, and even though you've reached the area, you still have to drive or walk across gravel. It is easy to get stuck if your car is not able to handle unpaved roads. The walk in to the entrance of the canyon is long - a few kilometers in the heat. If you would like the views with less hassle, go to Timnas Valley park, which is a nature reserve that has paved roads.
