It’s not a fact well known, but it’s not a secret, the weather in Sinai is the best in Egypt. When you’re sweltering in Cairo and finding it difficult to breathe, it’s cool and clean here in Katrine. It even snows in winter! In the summer, it’s lovely and green.
To trek in the mountains of Sinai, just sling a day pack over your shoulders and let the camels carry your bags. Overnights are spent in the Bedouin gardens where you can grab a fig or crack an almond. Your guide will prepare your meals and you can join him round the campfire.
