Tours to St Catherine’s monastery and Mount Sinai continue to be popular with visitors to Eilat. They are quite different to the usual run of the mill trips as they offer a genuine in-depth perspective  of the area and its inhabitants. They are suitable for experienced travelers who prefer a more rustic and authentic tour experience. Just over the nearby Egyptian border a 2 hour drive takes us to both Mount Sinai, St Catherine’s Monastery and the pictures sand stone area of the Sinai desert. We encourage people visiting Sinai or Egypt to cross the border the day or evening before the tour as this allows participants a comfortable morning pick-up time and they also have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Red Sea coastline and snorkelling on the coral reefs prior to their tour. Quality  accommodation is offered at very comfortable rates.  We provide a range of options from five star hotels to local beach huts. All transportation from Eilat is included as well as assistance at the border crossing.

St. Catherine’s Monastery & Mount Sinai- One day tour (Sinai tours)
Departing 6;00 am from Eilat this guided tour of St Catherine's Monastery and  Mount Sinai is a very full and active one-day trip for the more energetic travellers. We begin the tour heading straight to the towering red granite mountains of the high range where both St. Catherine’s monastery and Mount Sinai are found, this stunning area is a UNESCO world heritage site. The monastery was constructed in the 6 century and stands at the foot of Mount Sinai (traditionally believed to be the mountain on which Moses received the Ten Commandments). Although commonly called St Catherine’s it’s actual name is ’The monastery of the Transfiguration". Greek Orthodox monks care it for today in the same tradition as in centuries past.. Having toured St. Catherine’s monastery we take a picnic lunch and begin our ascent on the ancient pilgrim trail of Mt. Sinai, (Biblical Mount Horeb) known in Arabic as Jabel Musa (Moses Mountain). A two and a half hour walk takes us to the summit where we rest and take in the magnificent views. After descending the mountain we return to our vehicle for the drive back to Eilat via the Taba crossing.
