Sharm El Sheikh / Super Safari Coloured Canyon and St. Catherine Monastery / Sharm El Sheikh

You will be collected from your hotel at approximately 7am, driven for 3 hours, by Land Cruiser (4×4) and taken to the site of St. Catherine’s Monastery, which is still active today. It is situated at the foot of mount Sinai and is home to the same order of monks who constructed it in the 4th Century. St. Catherine’s Monastery has been built between 527 and 565 A.D. The monastery is believed to have been built around the site of Moses’ Burning Bush. During your visit you will visit the chapel of a Greek Orthodox church to see famous icons and the Mosaic of Transfiguration.
Following this you will drive for another one and a half hours into the desert. You will enjoy an hour’s walk / climb through the Canyon, taking in the extraordinary colors and shapes of the rocks. After this you will proceed to Nuweiba for lunch. You will then be driven back to your hotel in Sharm, which takes approximately one and a half hours. We would recommend walking shoes or boots and please note that infirm adults and young children may find the climbing element difficult.
