The Sinai Trail aims to create a sustainable tourism economy that benefits local communities, particularly those in remote and marginalized areas.

People have been crossing Sinai – walking its old paths and byways – for many millennia. The Sinai Trail keeps this tradition alive. The Sinai Trail is managed by a cooperative of three Bedouin tribes (Jebalaya, Muzeina, Tarabin).

Upon arrival early in the morning, after breakfast at the camp, you'll be transferred to the trailhead at Abu Hamata, to meet your guide and crew with whom you'll be spending the rest of your trip. We then start hiking 16 KM to the mountain pass of Naqb El Dherwa.
After an early start, we'll leave the mountain pass and head to the wide valley of Wadi Nasseb. Post-lunch there, we'll head to Khlesat to set up camp and spend the night there. Overall, we'll have hiked 21 KM by the end of the day.
Today we'll be trekking 11 KM for the whole day in a very wide valley surrounded by high mountain peaks until we reach Lamlah. We'll set camp in the grazing grounds.
Today is the day that we venture for 17 KM into the high mountains of Jebaleya Tribes, heading into the lush green Oasis of Ein Kidd.
On our last day with the Jebaleya Tribe, we'll leave Eid Kidd, crossing the high mountains for one final time, until we reach Wadi Mandar, where there will be a Jeep waiting for us to transfer us to camp, to catch our bus heading home.


The scenery on this hike is breathtaking and indescribably beautiful. You will be hiking through the desert like mountains of Sinai and seeing a completely different side of Egypt that you have never seen before. Depending on which part of the trail we are taking, this could be around the mountains or closer to flat land and desert lakes.



The desert environment can make weather a bit extreme, hot summers are juxtaposed to extremely cold winders. The perfect time for this trip would be late autumn and in order to avoid extreme heat and cold. Peak months are mid October to Mid November and mid Feb to end of March. During these months the weather in the morning is sunny and hot while hiking so make sure you always carry water for hydration, at night you can enjoy the cool desert breeze.



The 4 nights are spent camping as we make our way through the pristine Sinai Trail. You will learn basic camping skills and how to set up a tent. Every 2 people will share a 3-person tent to ensure there is enough room to make you all feel comfortable.



You will be treated to 3 extremely delicious meals on a daily basis You will have 3 daily extremely delicious meals throughout the trip where you can help in their preparation if you want to. Breakfast is usually eggs, cheese, beans, honey and jam, lunch is on the light side having pasta and salad, while dinner you will enjoy the amazing cuisine of bedouins which is vegetables, meat or chicken slow cooked on charcoal or on the fire with some rice and salads.



You don’t need to be an experienced hiker to join this trip but you do need to be fit enough to hike or at least 5-6 hours every day sometimes in hot conditions. However, each day will just keep you motivated for the next with the great company and beautiful scenery.
