It's a significant geological site unique because it's among the first copper mines in the world. 4 locations are worth a visit apart from camping and cycling around the large site. It costs $60 for a half day tour from Eilat. People short of time and on a budget can give it a miss. We also chanced to see a... More

Amazing desert landscapes and geological curiosities. The infrastructure is good and many sites are accessible by road (unsealed).

We were in a studying visit in Eilat. It was a good occasion to see this beautiful park. The stone color reminded me zion park that we visited three years ago

Drive approximately 30 minutes north of Eilat to Timna park. You will know you are at the correct intersection when you see 6 very large Egyptian figurines. Drive down the road to the entry point where you pay 49 nis. Drive another 50 metres to the visitor's centre where you can pick up a map, guide and watch a 12... More

This is a must. The park combines beautiful views and very interesting history. There are some nice walks, from very child friendly easy ones to chalenging ones. In the entrance there is a guide that can help you plan the day (or days) based on the level of chaleng your troop can handle. Don't miss out in crawling in the... More

For me meeting a kiwi at the Tabernacle was great. The sheer scale and magnitude of Timna is mindboggling

It was a nice experience to visit this original type of Park and its sights. We came here with a rental car and we see almost everything on the given map at the entrance.

This wonder of nature is like being on the moon. Unbelievable. It is well worth a visit but I full day is preferable to a half day as there is so much to see.
