Full Description 3-Days Mount Sinai and Red Sea Trip:
Your 3-day experience begins after pick up you from your accommodation. During the tour, you will get unforgettable emotions and plunge into history.
First, your group will meet a local driver who will take you to the quiet beachfront hotel surrounded by desolate mountains.
At Aqua Sun, head to your hushu (traditional bamboo hut). Then, stroll along the 2 km private beach or swim in the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea. Meanwhile, you can also enjoy great views, including Saudi Arabia (which can be seen through the water).
Then, a buffet dinner awaits you before getting ready for the night trek to Mount Sinai (where Moses received the 10 Commandments). During the tour, heading to the monastery at 11:00 PM, you will have a couple of hours drive before you start the 2.5-hour trek uphill under the open sky and sparkling stars.
Along the way, you will find many comfortable places to relax and you will reach the top of the mountain in time.
Next, you will have time to admire the spectacular sunrise over the desert area, and then begin your descent to the Monastery of St. Catherine for breakfast in the garden.
After completing your tour at the monastery, the group will return to Aqua Sun for a beach holiday and relaxation. Spend the day relaxing on the beach, snorkeling over the incredible coral reef, or hanging out in public areas with locals and friends. You can also sample local delicacies at the varied buffet lunch. Do not forget to take memorable photos during the tour.
Next, on the third day, you will have a morning swim or head straight to the breakfast buffet. Meanwhile, you can choose either an optional off-road desert adventure or another relaxing day at the beach. The off-road adventure takes you to the Ain Khudra Oasis, which is hidden in the endless sand dunes of the Sinai Desert.
At the end of the tour, you will head back to your accommodation.
