Full description
Visit one of the most impressive geological formations in the area, a red sandstone mushroom with a shape that has been created by rapid erosion on the bottom half of the rock. Next, travel back in time to view an ancient workstation, where copper was melted to create tools, weapons, and ornaments. Surrounded by incredible scenery, you will continue on to view famous, unique geological structures known as the Arches, as well as Solomon’s Pillars. Here, you will also see the remains of the Egyptian temple dedicated to Goddess Hathor, as well as ancient rock carvings that depict King Ramses III. You will then continue to Timna Lake, which will prove to be a great place to relax at the end of your tour. There you can soak in the landscape, fill bottles of colored sandstone, or enjoy some thirst-quenching refreshments at the concession stand.

    Amazing tour in a small group led by professional drivers. Even though the tour doesn’t imply you’ll have a guided tour, the guys were very friendly and were willing to answer any questions we had while walking around and elaborate on them further. The other advantage is that they can adjust the route and change the order of sightseeing in order to escape crowds from touristy buses. Thanks a lot for the wonderful experience!

    It was a splendid tour in places rich in history and charm. The landscape is enchanting and we had a really good time with those who drove us to the points of interest in Timna Park. The departure at 8 and, probably, the period meant that the park was practically at our exclusive disposal. Experience that we recommend

    Unique landscape. Exciting story. We depended on transport inside the park. Anyone who has the energy can rent bicycles instead, but then you have to calculate all day. I recommend rather booking this tour package. We could have wished we had the opportunity to also have a guided tour of the tabernacle when we were first there.
