Red Canyon

Transformed by water over thousands of years, a 100-foot-long sandstone canyon in southern Israel offers amazing views and a look into the past. 

Bright red from its rusty composition, the Red Canyon is smooth and winding all at once. The Shani River flows through the canyon continuing its journey started so many years ago. 

Visitors can hike above or within the canyon on relatively short trails that leave a lasting impression.
