The Red Sea is famous for the world of life that thrives below its glittering surface, and you can snorkel among the swirling fish, or lounge at leisure on the soft sands of Egypt’s sun-drenched shores. Head out to find the treasured diving and snorkelling spots - swimming amid corals gently swaying in underwater currents. Angelfish, clownfish and gliding rays all inhabit the reefs here, along with a confetti of tiny red and yellow fish. Ras Mohammed National Park, which waits on a peninsular nearby, is renowned for having some of the best diving opportunities in the world. Back on land, explore lively Na’ama Bay, where humming restaurants, cafes and shisha bars are filled with holidaymakers. The bay’s golden beach is the original heart of Sharm El Sheikh’s tourism resort, and you can camp out here in a prime spot or settle into the luxury of a resort’s private sands. Encounter the massive El Mustafa Mosque with its marvellous domes and minaret rocketing up into the blue sky, impelling worshippers to pray. Wade into the market, to enjoy the challenge of securing a bargain - haggling is an essential part of the local culture here. Or, get your thrills by roaring across rolling biblical desert scenery, whipping up a wave of fine sand in your wake, as you storm the landscape in a 4X4.

St. Catherine's Monastery

Following an early departure, your excursion begins with a 135-mile (216-kilometre) journey inland through rugged desert toward the foothills of Mount Sinai, site of St. Catherine's Monastery. This Greek Orthodox holy place is the oldest Christian monastery in the world, with ties going back to the prophet Moses and the exodus of the Jews from Egypt.


St. Catherine's Monastery

The monastic order was founded in the 4th century AD by the Byzantine empress Helena, who had a small chapel built next to what is believed to be the Burning Bush from which God spoke to Moses. The chapel is dedicated to St. Catherine, the legendary martyr of Alexandria. According to legend, her body was transported by angels to an area just south of Mount Sinai, where it was found some 300 years later by monks from the monastery. In the 6th century, Emperor Justinian ordered the building of a fortress, including a basilica and a monastery to serve as a refuge for the monks of St. Catherine's.


Today, the monastery is still in use and inhabited by Greek Orthodox monks. Despite its remote location, the monastery attracts a great number of visitors and pilgrims. Its attractive scenic location is in itself a highlight. Until a road was built, the only way to enter the monastery was by being hauled up the steep walls in a basket. The guided tour of the monastic complex includes viewing what is believed to be Moses' Burning Bush and visits to the chapel to admire a collection of icons and jeweled crosses, as well as to the Library Museum which contains an impressive collection of precious icons and manuscripts.


Leaving the monastery, re-join the coach and commence the return journey to Sharm-el-Sheikh.
