Timna Park Tour

Visit one of the most impressive geological formations in the area – the red sandstone Mushroom. Its shape was created by rapid erosion on the bottom half of the rock. Travel back in time to view an ancient workstation where copper was melted to create tools, weapons, and ornaments.

Surrounded by incredible scenery, we will continue on to view famous, unique geological structures known as The Arches, as well as Solomon’s Pillars. Here, we will also see the remains of the Egyptian temple dedicated to Goddess Hathor, as well as ancient rock carvings that depict King Ramses III.

Then we will continue to Timna Lake, a great place to relax at the end of the tour! Soak in the landscape, fill bottles of colored sandstone, or enjoy thirst quenching refreshments at the concession stand.
