With Nature Trails Calling, It’s Time to Walk the Walk

Writing at the Times of Israel, Jessica Steinberg shares fun warmth weather activities in Israel to check out this season. From glamping to horseback riding, there’s something for everyone:

1) Love hiking but get confused by local maps printed in Hebrew? Erez Speiser can commiserate. Speiser is a native-born Israeli who treks throughout Israel and abroad, and has experienced the frustrations of hiking in foreign climes without a map because he didn’t speak the local lingua. He decided that Israel, land of the hikers, needed its own proper hiking guide in English.

The mechanical engineer created “Israel By Foot,” a website dedicated to local hikes. There are 13 hikes listed so far, and Speiser plans on adding one each month. The site mimics other hiking sites, with plenty of helpful information, including level of difficulty, distance, recommended months in terms of weather, maps and directions. Five dollars will get you premium information, including a topographical map, a GPS track file and other treats, but Speiser said there’s enough information available on the site to “hike for free.” There are also discounts when buying 5-9 hikes or 10 or more trips.
