There may be changes to this itinerary due to circumstances beyond our control.

Day 1: From Cairo. Our Mount Sinai Extension begins with a drive (by private air-conditioned bus) to St. Catherine's in the southern Sinai. You begin your climb up Mount Sinai by camel (or hike if you choose).  When it becomes too difficult for the camels to climb, you continue on foot via the "Steps of Repentance." Arrive on the top in time to watch the sunset.  It is very cold from November to March, so dress warmly.

Descend the mountain in the dusk and sleep at the foot of the mountain at the lodge which is a part of the St. Catherine's monastery.  
Overnight: St Catherine Monastery Lodge. 
Upgrade available to a 4 or 5 star hotel in St. Catherine's.

Day 2: The next morning you can go again to the top to greet the dawn with the hundreds of other pilgrims that make the trek each early morning, or you can stay in the lodge at the foot of the mountain.  

St Catherine's Monastery, SinaiIn the morning visit St. Catherine's Monastery.  There is a possibility that the monastery may not open that day. The monks are not under any obligation to serve the tourists that come. However, it is rare for them to close. Visitors are normally allowed to visit from 8-11 AM each day.
On your return drive to Cairo you can stop to visit a Bedouin village. 
Overnight at Novotel Cairo Airport Hotel, 4 star. 
Upgrade available to Movenpick Heliopolis, 5 star.
