Welcome to the Sinai desert mountains.
Over the years, our Bedouin guides have put together a selection of their favourite Sinai treks. Some are for experienced trekkers, others great for families or getting your first taste of the Sinai desert of Egypt.
The treks cover a diverse landscape that includes stunning formations, high peaks and plateaus, deep canyons, palm tree oases, Bedouin settlements, rolling dunes, rare desert blooms in spring and so much more.
And the unexpected bonus of the trekking in Sinai is seeing how your Bedouin guides move through their desert home. Taking people on safari is more than a way to earn a living for the guides – it’s their way of sharing a small piece of the Bedouin life with the world.
- Desert day trips and overnight camping – mass market bus tours might be cheap, but they don’t get you anywhere near the real Sinai. Try these alternative desert trips.
- For 3-6 days trekking the sandstone landscape, trek Sinai’s El Guna Plateau to Ein Khudra oasis or Arada’s deep canyons.
- If you are on a weekend or short break from Cairo, you can’t get further off the beaten track than Serabit El Khadem and Rumlah. Jeep safaris for 2-4 days combine 4×4 jeep and hiking, moving to new areas each morning and afternoon. Or stay at the Muzra Bedouin guest house, great for people who want a single base from which to explore. You can also visit this area from Dahab or Sharm, it just takes a bit longer to get there.
- Jebel El Tih Passage is remote trekking for 5-9 days and easily one of the best treks in Egypt.
- And finally, if you want to see it all, we do a Trans Sinai Trek once a year, normally November. email for dates if you’d like to join us.
