  • 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 relatively short tour of 12 kms under the white cliffs of the Zin Riverbed, with the possibility of bathing in a cool natural pool in the middle of the desert with a hidden spring in a thicket of poplar trees.

You can also visit the Nabatean city of Avdat, not far from the final resting place of David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister and a visionary for development of the Negev desert.
