Eilat, located at the southern tip of Israel, it a resort town bordering the Red Sea. The weather is warm year-around, and the waters are calm and clear, making it an excellent location for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. For those who prefer to view marine life without getting wet, there is an underwater observatory where you can catch a fascinating glimpse of life above and below the water.
‘Negev’ means ‘parched’ in Hebrew, which is a fitting description for the vast desert area covering the entire southern half of Israel. This remarkably expansive desert wilderness is characterized by endless brown, rocky, undulating mountains interrupted by craters, wadis, and Bedouin settlements. If you are seeking a wild Israeli adventure complete with jeeps, camels and exhilarating excursions into the rugged outdoors, look no further than Negev.
Other things to do in Negev – rappelling in Mitzpe Ramon crater, sand boarding, wineries and cheese farms on the (former) Nabataean spice route, bread baking/challah workshops, hot air ballooning, star gazing, and more!
