A Fun New Way to See Israel

A Fun New Way to See Israel

Thanks to some recent changes in regulations, there’s a fun new way to explore Israel.

Tourists in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand often travel around towing campers (also called “caravans”) that serve as a secure overnight “motel” hitched to a rented vehicle.

International-standard campers only became available for hire in Israel a couple of years ago. Tourists are starting to discover that they can rent a caravan in the Holy Land and park overnight at any of several dozen private and public campgrounds from north to south. Many of them are brand new, and others are in development.

For large families, this style of touring can be cheaper than hotels, but saving money is not the point. It’s a way of seeing and exploring a country in a different way — being close to the beauty of nature and able to choose your rest stops and overnight landscape in the comfort of your own “home on the road.”
