More About Israel & Jordan

Things to Do in Israel

Israel offers a variety of adventure to the outdoor enthusiast: The Israel Trail offers cyclists and hikers 580 miles of trails to explore; kayakers can discover Rosh Hanikra with its white cliffs and underwater tunnels and caverns or rafting on the Jordan River; or divers will be exhilarated by the views below the Red Sea’s surface off Eilat’s coast. For those needing a greater adrenalin rush, there’s ATV touring through the Golan Heights, and rappelling and ziplining at the Galilee’s Menara.

An Israel family vacation offers living history, with archeological digs, parks and beaches, the rich site of biblical stories, Crusader remains, a safari drive through Hai Bar Nature Reserve, the Children’s Museum in Holon, the Alpaca farm in the Negev, interacting with dolphins that swim freely at Dolphin Reef in the Red Sea, or visit the high-tech biblically-inspired theme park, King City.

A trip to Israel would hardly be complete without a visit to the Dead Sea, located at the lowest point on earth and well known for its buoyancy and mineral-rich waters. The Queen of Sheba, Cleopatra and Herod were all known for bathing here. Enjoy the black mud baths, or take in the health and beauty programs at hotels nearby.

Surprisingly, for wine enthusiasts Israel has over 300 wineries, and a 5,000 year-old history of making wine. Many wineries offer tours and tastings, plus dozens of micro-breweries make European-style beers.

Jordan's Highlight

The ancient, rose-colored Nabataean city of Petra warrants being crowned as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and is one of the top highlights of the Middle East. Walk or ride a camel through the Siq, a narrow mile-long sandstone passageway before the magnificent architecture rock city comes into view. Petra is just one of many archeological and historical highlights.
