Welcome To Trekking in Israel,
The perfect bike route for someone looking to find some of Tel-Aviv’s best sights!
Set a day aside for a visit to Herodion, King Herod’s greatest architectural achievement and final resting place, where you’ll hike up the mountain and explore ancient ruins. Afterwards, drive over to the site of Meharat Hariton (Hariton Cave), where a unique and fun walk (and crawl) through ancient limestone caves awaits you.
Walk through Florentin, Tel-Aviv’s young, bohemian neighborhood, where the countless works of graffiti will tell you a great deal about the people who live here and the culture they’ve created and sustained over time.
Tel-Aviv has a long and rich history with Shvakim (plural for Shuk, the Hebrew word for marketplace). Ever since the city’s early days, Shvakim have had a profound impact on the demographic makeup, goods both bought and sold, and the overall culture that Tel-Avivim enjoy on a daily basis. The five Shvakim outlined in this article are spots that you can’t afford to miss on your next visit to Tel-Aviv!

For those looking to test their spirit in an authentic trek to a horizon-to-horizon desert landscape, this is it. The trek to Central Negev is a once in a lifetime experience and is not for the fain-hearted. One of the toughest treks in Israel, this requires you to be absolutely fit for the challenge, extensive planning and water forting, so come prepared.
Judeah DesertThis 3 day trek towards Mezada, a UNESCO world heritage site is full of sights that will make you fall in love with Israel’s rich geological pride. The trek will take you through the Dead Sea, desert springs, miraculous streams deep in to the desert and finally Mezada.
A Makhtesh is a naturally occurring crater and this country is home to some of the most beautiful ones.
Of all the less traveled regions of Israel, this is almost certainty the most beautiful of all! If you ask any Israeli (even most of the hikers) how many Makhtesh’s (special craters, see glossary) are in Israel he’ll answer 3 – the Big, Small and Ramon. Just a few know that there are two more, small, beautiful and special Makhtesh’s, hidden in this less-traveled region. The whole region, serves as a big nature reserve.
