The massive jagged tooth of land between Africa and Asia, the Sinai is the fabled Biblical setting of The Exodus. It's a region of high mountains and sweeping deserts, home to wandering Bedouin tribes, Byzantine monasteries and crumbling Egyptian temples. Walk ancient trails and discover one of the Middle Easts most exciting new trekking destinations.
The Sinai can be trekked all year and its on the doorstep of Europe. Budget airlines fly direct and the trekking is affordable if you organise everything independently. Once you finish on trail it's easy to stay occupied off it at nearby Red Sea resorts with their gin-clear waters and coral reefs.
