Explore the beauty of the desert with a ride to the Colored Canyon and Dahab from Sharm El Sheikh. Hike in the picturesque desert canyon and learn about its unique vegetation. Break for lunch in Nuweiba before heading to Dahab to shop for Egyptian goods.
What to Expect
Venture out from Sharm El Sheikh in your guided 4x4 Land Cruiser and drive into the arid, sun-baked desert towards Dahab.
The Colored Canyon contains magnificent rock formations. Driving through the Wadi Watir Valley to reach the canyon, enjoy the unique beauty of the desert all around you. Wind through the mountain as the rock formations change from limestone, to granite, to basalt.
At the Colored Canyon, your guide will take you on a nature walk to discover the sparse but beautiful vegetation of the desert. Learn to identify acacias, green capparis, tamarisk trees, willow trees, the poisonous Sodom apple, and the desert pumpkin. Enjoy the easy hike through the canyon admiring the rugged scenery, and stop for a refreshment break in a cluster of date palms at the canyon summit.
Next you'll continue by Jeep to Nuweiba for lunch. Later, enjoy the 1.5-hour ride to Dahab, the biggest shopping area in South Sinai. Relax and enjoy the chance to browse for local Egyptian handicrafts, rugs, jewelry, perfumes, papyrus, and other souvenirs.
Your guide will then drive you back to Sharm and drop you off at your hotel.
