Sharm El Sheikh Excursions & Day Trips
The Coloured Canyon
With its breathtaking rainbow of colours, the Coloured Canyon in the northeastern Sinai is a true natural wonder and a site to behold – and explore. The peculiar, yet naturally occurring, rock formations and deep walls of the Coloured Canyon are a favorite of guests who prefer a low-key yet wondrous excursion in the Sinai.
Mount Sinai (Mount Moses) & St. Catherine’s Monastery
Nestled in the foothills of Mount Sinai (Mount Moses), the Chapel of the Burning Bush sits atop the roots of the biblical bush said to be where God spoke to Moses. Steps away is St. Catherine's 6th Century Monastery, one of the oldest continuously inhabited monasteries in the world. For energetic visitors, Mount Moses itself can be climbed from St. Catherine's to the summit, with part of the way accessible to camels. An overnight climb to watch the sun rise from the summit is a truly exhilarating and once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Sunset Camel Ride & Bedouin Dinner in the Desert
Far away from the lights of the city, the desert allows for a perfect view of brilliantly starry skies. Venture to the Sinai for a once-in-a-lifetime experience you won’t soon forget. Begin the evening with a camel ride at sunset, followed by a traditional Bedouin dinner, all set within the incredible and awe inspiring foothills of the expansive Sinai mountain range. Your guide will point out the various constellations found amongst the millions of stars visible. You will meet Bedouins, wearing their traditional galabeyas and okals and be received in their traditional tents as a welcome guest. Partake in an authentic Bedouin dinner, created together on a grill and accompanied by real Arabian bread under thousands of stars. After dinner, sip Bedouin tea with healthy desert herbs; lean back, relax and enjoy the serene spirit of the desert.
A desert safari is a highlight of any visit to the Sinai, combining stunning views of mountains and barren valleys. Discover real hidden oases and waterfalls, or stumble upon secluded beaches and Red Sea vistas inaccessible except by camel. The Savoy can arrange individual safaris and group excursions into the desert led by experienced guides in cars and mini buses.
