Walking Tour
From Sapir to Shizafon
  • The Israel National Trail is a walking path that covers the entire length of the State of Israel. It begins at Kibbutz Dan in the north and ends in Eilat. It current length is 1,100 kilometers.
  • The Israel National Trail has been chosen as one of the 20 best hiking trails by the National Geographic and has been described as combining nature, history, heritage and culture with biblical scenery on a large scale as well as scenes of modern day life in Israel.
  • The route may traverse firing ranges, and tours taking place during the weekmust therefore be coordinated with the IDF.
  • A very long and very dry trail. It is imperative to take with as much water as possible.
  • It is important to take into account the season, the weather and the walking hours. It is usually very hot in the Arava and walking during the late morning and early afternoon hours is very tiring and exhausting. It is recommended to begin as early as possible and to use the peak heat hours for resting along the way. 

The route is spread along the "springs' route" (along which there are many underground springs that provide water for the abundant vegetation). Walk along the route until the Moa ruins and continue along the wide riverbed of the Ashosh Stream. The route continues to the canyons of the Zofar Stream, the Hadud Stream and the beautiful canyon of the Vardit Stream. Proceed along more streams until arriving at the Shizafon Junction. The bonus that we have is an adventure in two hidden canyons, in one of which you can bathe.

The route length is 83 kms.
