Timna Park is located about seventeen miles north of Eilat and offers a plethora of activities for families. Beautiful scenery, special antiquities and a rich history come together to create an unforgettable experience. Timna is the site of the world’s first copper mine and ancient mining shafts can be seen throughout the park that date back to ancient imperial Egypt. Remnants of Egyptian mythology and fascinating historical facts keep visitors enthralled. A multimedia presentation brings the stories to life and explains copper mining and its development from ancient Egypt until present day.
Other attractions in the park include pedal boats on the lake, colored sand bottle crafts, making “King Solomon stamps” and of course enjoying the stunning arid-land vegetation that includes herds of wild ibex that observe the visitors from the cliff tops. Additionally, there is a restaurant on site, a souvenir shop and camping grounds.
Open Hours: Sun-Thu, Sat 8:00-16:00

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
