Road trip! Join Finjan for a multi-day road trip down south to Eilat, the Red Sea and Red Mountains. The trip will include early morning / evening hikes, rich archeology, Red Sea beaches and starry nights upon the Eilat Mountains.

The first (official) Finjan road trip is in motion. We are heading down to the southern tip of Israel where the mountains meet the sea and empires battled for the control of the southern Levant and northern Arabia. This is a two-day outing with the option of joining wherever and whenever you want. Or you can come for the whole time which we highly recommend.

  • Timna National Park (light hiking and sightseeing in the park)
  • Archeological sites around Eilat
  • Schoret Canyon evening hike
  • Camping at Mount Yehoram in the Eilat Mountains
  • Sunrise hike at Mount Yehoram
  • Snorkeling down by the Red Sea
  • Afternoon beers to cool off
  • (Possible light hike to finish the 2nd Day at the Red Canyon) – subject to adjustment/change

So, whats the plan?

We will meet (officially) at 09:00 at Timna Reserve on Friday, July 17th. Timna Reserve is one of the most unique and inspiring reserves in the world. Using our vehicles, we will spend a few hours touring Timna National Park, one of Israel’s most captivating archeological and geological areas. We will visit a number of sites in the park that capture the fascinating human history and geological record of the area.

  • For those of you that want to join us Thursday evening to camp out in the area, we’d be happy to have you with us and to see another beautiful sunrise. Otherwise, you can meet us at 09:00 on Friday morning at Timna.

After Timna and a relaxing lunch break, we will head for some of the archeological sites situated around Eilat before embarking on one of the more beautiful hikes in the area (early evening once the heat has died down) at the Schoret Canyon.

  • You can buy lunch at the Timna visitor’s center or bring your own

From here we will head to Eilat to pick up essentials for the evening before heading to our campground at Mount Yehoram, high in the Eilat Mountains.

The next day will begin with a sunrise hike to the top of Mount Yehoram and to be greeted by stunning views into the Sinai Peninsula and surrounding areas. After breakfast we will head for some relaxation and snorkeling on the Red Sea and pop in to a local brewery.

Depending on time / group vibe, we may hike through the Red Canyon or explore some other special parts between Eilat and the Negev and around the Egyptian border

What do you need to do?

This will all be done with your own transport. Just load up the car with your gear for each day and night and we will take care of the rest.
