Join us 20-31 October for our annual trek across South Sinai. On your Sinai trek, you’ll use the old Bedouin trails to travel from Serabit El Khadem, near the Gulf of Suez, to Ras Abu Galum and Dahab on the Gulf of Aqaba.
You’ll traverse every kind of desert landscape: wide wadis, deep canyons, high mountain plateaus, dunes and palm tree oases. And you’ll finish your Sinai trek snorkeling a beautiful coral garden in Ras Abu Galum.
The Trans Sinai Trek takes you through 4 distinct areas:
On a Trans Sinai trek, you will love how you settle in to the quiet rhythm of the mountains, sea and Sinai Bedouin life.
It’s also possible to extend your holiday and spend time on the Red Sea in Dahab. As you book, you’ll see options to add accommodation, airport transfers, etc.
Minimum 3 people to guarantee the Trans Sinai Trek. Single travelers are welcome. We will add you to a group or suggest an alternative date/safari.
If you have any questions, just ask!
Or if you need a shorter safari, check out our other Sinai treks.
The trek is divided into 4 main areas:
This area is next to Jebel El Tih, the mountain range dividing north and south Sinai. It is characterized by wide wadis, large rolling dunes and families still living the traditional Bedouin life.
The safari starts with a 1 day drive to the base of Serabit El Khadem, the last half of which is off-road:
Other attractions on this part of the trek include:
Deep canyons that join Jebel El Tih to Jebel El Guna. Trekking the canyons is amazing, and emerging from them to the El Guna Plateau is breathtaking. This area is empty and one of the most remote areas you will ever find yourself.
From the El Guna Plateau, water floods to Nuweiba in the East or Dahab in the West. We follow the western route to Ein Khudra Oasis then the final coastal mountain trail:
There is something almost miraculous about emerging from the desert to the sea.
Ras Abu Galoum is a remote Bedouin fishing settlement. Swim in Laguna, snorkel a beautiful coral garden at Dheyla, then take a final 1 hr camel trail to the Blue Hole and jeep to Dahab.
