The Desert Blooms

If you think deserts are cool, you’ll want to explore Israel’s Negev – which covers the land from Be’er Sheva all the way to the city of Eilat in the far south. Recently, this expansive desert has become very popular among travelers – thanks to the many tours, rentable cabins, wildlife, vineyards, and more available to tourists and locals alike.

Tablet Magazine writers tell us about the many regions in the Negev worth visiting. Below is number one on their list.

Deep Desert Israel

If you are excited by the idea rappelling in the Ramon Crater, Deep Desert Israel is the organization for you. Offering private desert activities with expert local guides, it has plenty of adventurous (and less adventurous) options for you, all surrounded by breathtaking scenery. It also offers jeep tours (beginning from Sde Boker or the Ramon Crater, you can undertake an expedition of several days or return to your hotel for the night), hiking trips (from a few hours’ walk to a week-long trek), outdoor yoga workshops, and stargazing.

You can read the full list here.
