A three days expedition in the desert. A wonderful mix of rock climbing, immersing yourself in nature and getting to know more about yourself, and sharing reflections with great company. Every day we will climb one of the Sinai volcanic mountains and chase sunrise to sunset in valleys and between mountains. Each day we will have a different climbing spot and we will sleep under the desert starry sky. Not to forget the genuine Bedouin natural and healthy food that cleanses both body and mind.

5. Blue Hole

Explore the deep at Blue Hole, rich in marine life but notorious for the dangers it poses. Not without reason, the spot has been termed "Diver's Cemetery" by many in the scuba diving community. Despite this, the hole attracts many keen divers, largely because of its easy accessibility (the sinkhole sits just offshore) and its main feature, a tunnel located 56 m (184 ft) below the surface--it leads to the open sea and presents a major challenge to experienced divers.

6. Mount Sinai, Saint Catherine

Take the trek up Mount Sinai, said to be the peak on which Moses spoke to God and received the Ten Commandments. The 2,285 m (7,497 ft) mountain has two routes: most visitors prefer to take the easier Camel Path on the way up, and descend via the challenging 3,750 Steps of Penitence. A small chapel on the top and a World Heritage-listed monastery at the foot of the mountain mark this out as a place of pilgrimage, while the barren, rocky landscape has an evocative, reverential atmosphere all its own.

Said to be one of the oldest active Christian monasteries in the world, the ancient walled complex lies nestled in the rocky foothills of Mount Sinai. Arrange a tour of the remote site, a popular pilgrimage spot for multiple religions, to discover a treasure trove of ancient manuscripts, icons, and artworks housed in the historic complex.
