One of the world’s great new trails

Everybody at the Sinai Trail is delighted to hear we were named one of the greatest 6 new hiking trails in the world by Wanderlust Magazine. Especially happy too to see our friends from the Jordan Trail and the Masar Ibrahim al Khalil in Palestine in the list: that means 50% of the best new trails are in the Middle East, which is truly fantastic news.

1st thru hike 2017

After sitting out the coldest depths of winter, the Sinai Trail got back to action in April 2017 with a group of 10 hikers from Egypt, the USA, India, Holland, China and other countries walking the whole trail from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Roof of Egypt. Things got tough when they entered the highlands of St Katherine, with an epic rainstorm hitting on their first night in the mountains and temperatures going below zero in their camp on the top of Jebel Katherina in the days that followed. Nevertheless, all hikers stuck it out and finished the trail, in a trip to remember a lifetime: we all know here the Sinai Trail isn’t easy, so a big congratulations – alf mabrook! – to all of them!
