You will be picked up from the hotel in Marsa Alam by air-conditioned vehicle and transferred to Hurghada airport for the flight to Sharm El Sheikh.
From Sharm El Sheikh our trip to St. Katherine starts (2:30 hours). You will have the opportunity to rest in a pension before climbing the mountain with its 700 steps. Once at the top, we stay until the glorious sunrise.
Our next stage is the monastery where Moses spoke to God: The St. Katherine Monastery. Here, in the building complex of the oldest monastery, we will find the chapel was built by Helena: the Chapel of the Burning Bush. This chapel was built on the place where Moses had seen the burning bush. The living bush on the site is the original according to tradition.
It is also called “St. Helena Chapel “. The place is sacred to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The full official name of the monastery is “The Holy and Imperial Monastery of the Sinai God-blessed Mount”. The site was dedicated to St. Catherine (whose relics were allegedly transported there by angels) and has become a popular place of pilgrimage.
From St. Katherine you return to the hotel in Sharm El Sheikh, to stay the rest of your free time or use it for small Sharm El Sheikh city tours.
Afterwards, we drive to the airport Sharm El Sheikh, from where you fly to Hurghada, with direct transfer to your hotel in Marsa Alam.
