About 20 km north from Eilat, you will find one of the most beautiful desert trails in Israel - the Red Canyon. For years wind and water sculpted its red-colored walls of the Nubian sandstone giving it an elegant and unique shape.
The Red Canyon is 200-300 meter in length. You can walk through all of it (there and back) in 40-50 minutes. The route is quite simple. Only in some places you will need to climb up or down the stable metal ladders. But trust me, even kids can handle this.
There are two trails in the Red Canyon - green and black. The green one is fast and easy. It will lead you to the dried, narrow river channel (the most-photographed part of the track) which later opens up into a wider channel.
The black trail is a bit more difficult. You'll need to climb a bit in the beginning until you reach a peack with a breathtaking view (so worth the climb!). On the way back, you'll need to go down a steep drop so move slowly and make sure to wear comfortable shoes.
