Visit Timna Park for a rare glimpse of the marvels of ancient engineering coupled with natural desert beauty. The park spans 6,070 hectares (15,000 acres) and includes a host of unusual geological formations like naturally eroded arches and columns. Also within its borders, you can view ancient mining techniques used in the area since as early as the 10th century BCE, when Edomites extracted the resource for use in decorations and weaponry. In addition to touring the premises, you can arrange to rent bikes in the park, camp there overnight, or take pedal boats out on the lake. To visit Timna Park on your trip to Eilat, use our Eilat road trip site.

  • What a magnificent national park. Easily one of the best I have been in. Go to the information center and pay for admission. Then drive along the road and stop at all the sights. Most can be seen directly from the pullovers, others are a short walk. If you like, there are more significant hikes to take. Or bring your bike (probably not in high summer though). This is a great place to take people that are not very mobile. A lot can be seen from the car. If you are anywhere in the area, you should not miss this.
  • A unique place and one of a kind. If you haven't been there yet, it's definitely worth it. Park your vehicle and continue on foot to get to each one of the spectacular shapes and natural phenomena scattered around the park. There is a parking near each spot. Enjoy!
