Our tours are organised in a modular way to allow programmes to be tailored to individual needs and for mixed groups to disperse in separate activities and meet up in the evening to share experiences. Ideal for families or groups in which individuals have different interests, strengths or stamina.

Visitors can explore the monastery and discover monastic remains on Mt Sinai and still arrive at the summit for sunset. This programme can be done on a day visit from Dahab or Sharm.
|1 day: Bedouin gardens and medicinal herbs
Visitors can discover the rich tradition of Bedouin gardens and medicinal herbs in a fun day of exploration and eating. This programme can be done on a day visit from Dahab or Sharm.

|1 evening: Star gazing
A fascinating introduction to the stars can be given on any suitable evening. Please check the monthly moon phases. Both the Camel School and the Ecolodge are perfect venues. The evening can be attached to many other programmes.
|2 days: Mt Sinai and the Bedouin gardens
In two days, visitors can visit the monastery, explore Mt Sinai, climb to the summit for sunrise and visit the Bedouin gardens. This provides a good introduction to the region of Mt Sinai, its history, landscape and Bedouin culture.
|2 days: Camel school and trek
Two days are best for gaining confidence in camel riding. The first day involves instruction in the skills, and the second, a closely supervised trek.

|3 days: Hiking around Jebel Serbal
A challenging hike up the Jebel Serbal range which gives exceptional views over the Gulf of Suez and Wadi Firaan. Involves a steep gulley climb and a ridge walk. Trekking with pack or camel is possible.
