IN-DEPTH LEARNING
As you travel across Israel you will encounter a mosaic of historic, religious and culturally significant locations. Every river, rock and hillside is steeped in rich meaning. We share our love and knowledge of the region as you learn about its history, inhabitants, geology, and wildlife. Our intimate knowledge of nature and history enables us to design a tour tailor-made for your group’s particular interests.

EXPERIENCE HISTORY
We believe hiking and mountain biking enable a special connection between people and the environment. What better way to get to know Israel that to get outdoors and tread on her ancient soil? Encounter remnants of the ancient Nabatean civilization as you pedal across the Negev desert. Bathe in the sparkling aqua sea of Caesarea, as Herod the Great once did.

You will stay at scenic boutique hotels, nourish yourself with fresh Mediterranean cuisine and enjoy the sunshine at the pool or beach.
