Explore the Holy Land by signing up for a group hike.

Visitors to Israel looking for an outing slightly more adventurous than another museum, archeological site or outdoor market can take advantage of the growing number of organized hiking groups.

There is no shortage of organizations to help you hoof it into nature, whether you’re looking for a self-guided one-day trek or a 65-day chauffeured hike on the 1,100-kilometer (683-mile) Israel Trail (for new Israel Trail maps in English from the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, click here.

Israel by Foot, launched last year by Erez Speiser, is the latest go-to site for intrepid trekkers. The website offers free hiking resources as well as maps, GPS track files and Google Maps with coordinate links that you can download for $5 each, all in English.

Speiser, a mechanical engineer by day, has added paid “inn-to-inn hikes” that include nights in local beds and breakfast and, optionally, a live local expert as a guide.
