Places & Activities

In a Nutshell

The possibilities are wide open: Region by region, highlighting places and activities you might include in your itinerary

Israel is a small country. From west to east, its widest point is an hour-and-a half drive. From north to south its longest point is a 7-hour drive. Despite its size, Israel is blessed with six micro-climates, four seas (Red Sea, the Sea of Galilee, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Dead Sea), mountains, valleys, deserts, green pastures and wide-ranging wildlife. From almost 10,000 feet high at Mount Hermon, it plunges to the lowest point on the face of the earth, the Dead Sea.

Proximity gives you a great deal of flexibility in deciding where you’re going to go and what you’re going to do to meet your trip goals. Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will be part of every trip. Beyond that, your options are wide open.

Here are some of the suggestions, by no means comprehensive, of possible places to visit in each region along with and some insider tips. Consider these as a starting point in thinking about your itinerary.
