Highlight of this Itinerary:
Saint Catherine's Monastery, the Coloured Canyon, the Wadi Watir, the Gulf of Aqaba
Get ready to leave the hotel early in the morning for the Saint Catherine's Monastery, one of the oldest working Christian monasteries in the world, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is located at the foot of Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments. The monastery was built in the 6th century, though it was named after Catherine in the 11th century. Catherine of Alexandria was beheaded in 305 after being sentenced to death on a wheel, which did not kill her. It is believed that angels brought her remains to the Mount Sinai, which were found by monks in the 9th century. You will then take a drive on a comfortable 4x4 Jeep deep into desert, passing the beautiful Wadi Watir, which Moses crossed leading his people to the Promised Land. The Coloured Canyon with its tiny waterfalls making small lakes on the ground is your next stop. The spectacular labyrinth of rocks, which at some spots reach 40 meters in height, has a great mix of hues – from purple and red to dark brown and yellow. On the way back you will make a stop for lunch in Nuweiba and then proceed to the Gulf of Aqaba, where you can enjoy swimming for approximately one hour. In the evening you will be taken back to the hotel. (L)
