Why we chose this tour

On our Mount Sinai Sunrise Tour, adventure lovers and history buffs alike will get their fix. Cross one of the most iconic experiences in Egypt off your bucket list as you summit Mount Sinai just in time to see the desert illuminated by the sunrise. After descending, enjoy a visit to St Catherine's Monastery and see the legendary burning bush. Cap off a tiring yet rewarding day with some hard-earned rest and relaxation at a stunning Red Sea beach.

Rise and shine, adventure junkies and outdoor enthusiasts – this Mount Sinai Sunrise Hike is waiting for you. If you live for exciting activities and beautiful scenery, then you probably won’t mind staying up all night and working your muscles to watch the legendary sunrise from the top of Mount Sinai. After getting picked up from your hotel, drive through the desert to the base of the mountain, famed for its role in the Bible as the place where Moses received the 10 commandments. There, a local Bedouin will meet you to guide you on your hike to the summit. Enjoy legendary views as the sun slowly pokes its head up over the desert, its beauty quickly erasing any aches from your feet and sleepiness from your eyes.


After descending the mountain, you’ll enjoy some much-needed breakfast to fuel your body before touring Saint Catherine’s Monastery, an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site. This 6th-century monastery, built around the site of what is said to be the burning bush that spoke to Moses, is extremely well-preserved and has a fascinating history. After touring the complex, including the olive grove and the famous skull room, you’ll head to Nuweiba to eat lunch and relax at one of the gorgeous beaches on the Red Sea. To end your Mount Sinai Sunrise Tour, enjoy some free time to swim in the refreshing water and rest your feet – you deserve it.
