Starting from £112.85 GBP / Adult
Join this fascinating desert tour, that's steeped in history, and explores some of Israel's finest desert scenery. Visit the picturesque Timna Valley National Park, which is on UNESCO's tentative list, and explore its wonderous geological formations such as "The Arches," "The Mushroom," "The "Sphinx," and "Solomon's Pillars." The area is rich in copper and has been mined since the 5th millennium BCE. You'll explore the ancient mines—the oldest in the world—and even crawl through them if you dare, while hearing about ancient techniques and some of the people who mined the copper in these stark desert conditions for the Egyptian elite. After, visit the Eilat Stone Jewelry, which is a unique factory that holds the royalties for all the stones excavated from the Timna Valley's mines. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
