The Sinai Trail is divided into four sections & we’ll hike two on this journey. The first will be a 12 day hike from the Gulf of Aqaba to the remote oasis of Ein Kidd. The second will be a 12 day ascent from Ein Kidd to the highlands of St Katherine, where we’ll summit Jebel Katherina, Egypt’s highest summit at 2642m. We’ll walk around 220km on each section, moving through windswept deserts & high mountains. We’ll walk rugged wadis & vast, sweeping plains & we’ll climb some of the Sinai’s highest & most iconic peaks. We’ll move how Bedouin have always moved in these deserts, walking with caravans of camels & sleeping under the desert stars.
The thru hike goes deep into the desert wilderness & is one of the best escapes in the world. Whoever you are, it will change your life.
The Sinai Trail is divided into four separate sections & on this trip we will hike its mountain section, scaling the so-called ‘Seven Summits’ of the Sinai. It’s a 220km, 14 day traverse of the Middle East’s grandest, most fabled mountain landscapes & a challenging route for which a good level of mountain fitness & experience is essential. We will scramble through rocky canyons, cross waterpools, walk wild green wadis, climb the Sinai’s highest, most remote summits & travel the way the Bedouin have always travelled these landscapes, walking with camels & sleeping below the desert stars.
The Sinai Trail Seven Summits Thru Hike is a route for anybody who wants to go deep into the region’s mountain landscapes.

This Autumn, for the first time ever, we’ll be walking the whole Sinai Trail and we’re breaking the route down into FOUR parts: PART 1, 2 & 4 of 12 days each and PART 3 of 14 days. The first part is from Ras Shetan on the Gulf of Aqaba coast to Ein Kidd where there is a beautiful oasis with palms and bamboo. On the second part the route continues from Ein Kidd to the highlands of St. Katherine. You will walk through narrow wadis, cross high passes and climb some of the highest peaks in Egypt. The third part runs from St. Katherine to Serabit el Khadem via some of the Sinai’s most remote wadis and mountains. 
The fourth part is from Serabit el Khadem in the Gulf of Suez to Ras Shetan in the gulf of Aqaba. It run through the Middle East’s greatest wilderness. We will walk through wadis, red sandy deserts and we will visit the ruins of the Pharaonic Temple of Serabit el Khadem, and its surrounding turquoise mines.
