Visit Timna Park for a rare glimpse of the marvels of ancient engineering coupled with natural desert beauty. The park spans 6,070 hectares (15,000 acres) and includes a host of unusual geological formations like naturally eroded arches and columns. Also within its borders, you can view ancient mining techniques used in the area since as early as the 10th century BCE, when Edomites extracted the resource for use in decorations and weaponry. In addition to touring the premises, you can arrange to rent bikes in the park, camp there overnight, or take pedal boats out on the lake.

  • Very neat and quite expansive. We were with a tour, but seems easy to navigate. Welcome center was very nice as was the other food/gift area by a lake within. It made a nice tie in to the history...

  • A desert hiker's paradise! Amazing park! The hiking points are absolutely breathtaking. Advise: lots of water! Comfortable hiking wear and lots of sunscreen and hats! WC points are also limited so best to prepare! Easiest hiking trail points are about one and half hour to two hours. We spent the whole day at Timna Park. Won't advise you to go there if you are in a hurry.
  • This lovely national park is full of great activity, beautiful sight seeing and a good place for spending the night. We spent one night in the caravan which was clean and well equipped. Breakfast was good and fresh. We took the sunset tour with the local ranger - highly recommended.
