Vue d'ensemble

Observez le lever du soleil depuis le mont Sinaï et visitez le monastère Sainte-Catherine lors de ce voyage privé depuis Charm el-Cheikh. Partant dans la soirée et voyageant avec un guide privé, dirigez-vous dans le désert du sud du Sinaï pendant que votre guide raconte l’histoire biblique de cette montagne sacrée, où on pense que Moïse a reçu les Dix commandements. Montez au sommet pour assister à un lever de soleil spectaculaire, puis descendez pour une visite guidée de l’église et des trésors du monastère Sainte-Catherine. Ensuite, retour à Charm el-Cheikh, avec un arrêt pour le déjeuner en cours de route.
  • Excursion privée d'une journée à la montagne de Moïse et au monastère Sainte-Catherine au départ de Charm el-Cheikh
  • Regarder le soleil se lever sur les montagnes du Sinaï
  • Marchez sur les traces de Moïse à l'endroit où il a reçu les 10 commandements
  • Visitez le monastère historique Sainte-Catherine, qui aurait été construit sur le site du Buisson ardent
  • Chapelle orthodoxe grecque avec ses icônes et sa célèbre mosaïque de la transfiguration
  • Le début de matinée signifie que vous manquez la chaleur du désert l'après-midi
  • Profitez de l'attention personnalisée et privilégiée de votre guide égyptologue expert lors de cette visite privée spéciale
  • Prise en charge et retour aux hôtels du centre de Charm el-Cheikh
Commencez votre expérience avec une prise en charge en fin de soirée à votre hôtel à Sharm el Sheikh. Faites connaissance avec votre sympathique guide privé et embarquez dans votre confortable véhicule climatisé pour vous rendre au mont Sinaï, dans le désert du sud du Sinaï.
Pendant que vous voyagez, découvrez l'histoire de la montagne, connue sous le nom de montagne de Moïse - le lieu où, selon la Bible, Moïse a reçu les dix commandements et un lieu de pèlerinage religieux au fil des siècles.
À votre arrivée, commencez à gravir les marches menant au sommet sous la conduite de votre guide. Si vous le souhaitez, empruntez une partie du trajet à dos de chameau (coût supplémentaire), avant de gravir les derniers escaliers jusqu'au moment voulu pour assister à un magnifique lever de soleil.
Buvez dans les vues à couper le souffle à l'aube et illuminez les pics, et prenez des photos à votre guise. Une fois dans le paysage et l’atmosphère qui règne au sommet, redescendez au pied de la montagne.
Continuez ensuite avec votre guide vers le monastère Sainte-Catherine. Construit au 6ème siècle, on pense que ce complexe muré orthodoxe se trouve sur le site du Buisson ardent, où Moïse aurait traditionnellement parlé à Dieu.
Rentrez à l'intérieur et visitez les points forts de ce bâtiment vénéré. Explorez la basilique de la Transfiguration au 6ème siècle, recouverte d'icônes, et découvrez des trésors tels que la mosaïque de la Transfiguration pendant que votre guide explique leur signification religieuse.
Ensuite, installez-vous dans votre véhicule privé et arrêtez-vous pour déjeuner dans la ville balnéaire de Dahab avant la fin de votre voyage avec un hôtel déposé à Charm el-Cheikh dans l'après-midi.
Remarque: le monastère Sainte-Catherine se trouve à environ 230 km de Charm el-Cheikh et le trajet dure environ trois heures.

Tour is highly recommended. I done a tour only to myself. Best guide was who climb up the Mountain with me. There is a good breakfast as well. Amazing view!

What can I say ... it was AMAZING!!!!! The guide and driver were awesome and made me feel safe the whole trip. The Bedouin guide up the mountain was absolutely charming and so supportive - it is not the easiest of climbs but so worth it! THANK YOU so much Viator - the trip was truly EXCELLENT!

We really enjoyed our trek up this mountain but it is quite a feat. Certainly the sunrise was superb and worth the effort. Our bedouin guide was truly superb, and the guides from Sharm were also very good. We were sorry that the monastery was closed, and we were somewhat disappointed with the breakfast given the energy expended! We are very pleased that we did this trip though, and certainly the private guides are well worth it.

Viator was more expensive than booking at the hotel, but it's worth it! Our Bedouin guide for the climb, Ahmed, and the tour guide for the trip, Mohsin, were noticably more professional, friendly, and honest than all the others we observed during the tour.

Make no mistake, this is a physically demanding climb, but it is doable for reasonably active people. If you are quite sedentary, or overweight, hire a camel. However, keep in mind that the camel will only take you to the steps at the top of the mountain. These you will have to climb, and they are rustic and challenging, meaning they are not so much "steps" as strategically placed rocks.

The sunrise at the top was beautiful and well worth the journey. The view was inspiring. I could have done without the "pilgrims" who kept walking around to different spots on the summit, singing (badly) hymns at the top of their lungs. But, there isn't much to be done about that.

All in all, the tour was wonderful, Viator provided a fantastic service, and I'm glad to have done it... But, it's one of those tours I will only do once!

An amazing experience! Very friendly and knowledgeable Egyptologist and Bedouin guides. The great advantage to a private tour is being able to ask questions and gain information that you possibly wouldn't ask on a 'group' tour. I went up the first part of Moses' Mountain by camel (an hour and a half on a camel is a LONG time - I literally couldn't feel my legs when I had to get off it again!) I recommend wearing long trousers - not just knee length shorts as I did! Then there are 750 'steps' to climb - very sandy and can be slidy - particularly when going up at night. We had a gorgeous moonlit night an the starts were amazing! At 4.45am we reached the summit and it was COLD!! Sunrise was 5am and it was as though someone had instantly turned on the heat - and WHAT a sight! Wouldn't have missed it for the world - worth all the exersion of getting to the top!! As you're climbing pretty much all night you are exhausted by the time you reach the bottom of the mountain again (unless I'm more unfit than I think!) and I was half falling asleep over breakfast at St Catherine's monastery. Bring a sarong or something to cover your legs if not wearing long trousers - if you don't have one, they'll supply a sheet type thing, but you must wear it! All in all the trip was WELL worth the price and effort - a real 'once in a lifetime' experience! I loved it and can't say enough about the Egyptologist and the Bedouin guide, they were fantastic - and both spoke fanstastic English! A brilliant trip by Viator - would definitely book excursions through them again!

The whole tour was incredible! Our tour guide, Ahmed was great. He and my husband hit it off immediately. Within 30 minutes they were joking and laughing ... and it didn't stop the entire way! He was very knowledgeable and even accompanied us up the mountain. He helped with the negotiation with the Bedoiuns for our camels. Our Bedouin guide, Mohammed was excellent as well. He was very quiet at first, but as he loosened up, he was joking around with the other guys too! I was really impressed with how many languages he spoke! This was by far, the best part of our trip to Egypt!

This was an amazing trip with amazing views and I fully recommend it to people who enjoy hiking. We were picked up from our hotel in Nama Bay, Sharm El Sheikh, at about 10pm and it took about 3 hours to get to the base of the mountain. We started hiking at about 2am, got to the top at 5am and the sun came up at about 5:45am. The night I went happened to be a full moon, but otherwise I would have needed a flashlight for sure. Also, dress warmly! I wish I had worn warmer pants, gloves, and a hat. Luckily, there were some people who rented blankets at the top, otherwise I would have frozen! Again, highly recommended for people who enjoy hiking. It was fun to hike at night and the views are amazing during your hike down when you can see everything.
