Israel is one of the world’s most exciting, diverse and complex destinations.
It is intellectually engaging, and sensually delightful, brimming with history, and overflowing with spirit. Yet it’s also an inviting beach destination, major culinary hot-spot, and tech start-up mecca. A fascinating multi-layered web of histories, realities, and dreams, the country can however be somewhat challenging to navigate.
At Pomegranate we unlock Israel for our clients. While classic sites are often integral to our itineraries, it is the rare extras, hidden gems, subject matter experts and truly special experiences which enable us to provide you the most compelling travel experience available in Israel.
  • Acre

    Acre’s crusader UNESCO world heritage ‘ruins’ are so complete you’ll feel transported in time.

  • Around Jerusalem

    The Jerusalem environs are extremely rich with exciting places to discover and tour.

  • Around Tel Aviv

    Venturing about half an hour outside of Tel Aviv is the Ayalon Institute (also known as Mahon Ayalon), one of our favourite spots in the country.

  • Banias

    The Banias also combines history with nature and boasts the wonderful archaeological remains of Caesarea Philippi, the city built by Herod’s son Philip. 

  • Beit Guvrin

    Beit Guvrin National Park consists of over 1000 acres of green hilly land. Scratch the surface and find a hard layer of ‘nari’ rock covering a layer of softer chalk.

  • Beth Sh’ean

    Beth Sh’ean, one of the most impressive Roman sites in Israel. The theatre and bath houses are particularly worthy of note, in addition to the huge columns and capitals found all over the site.

  • Bethlehem & West Bank

    The area is fascinating to explore, whether for Christian Heritage, as part of a geo-political tour, or out of historical interest. 

  • Caesarea

    Caesarea was King Herod the Great’s imposing port town, where Rome was honoured with temples, gladiators fought each other to the last, and games were played in celebration of the King and the empire.

  • Eilat

    Eilat boasts year round sunshine, and glitzy beach hotels set against the stunning, red mountain backdrop.

    Cool off from the desert heat at this glorious, green oasis in the middle of the Judean desert.

  • Gamla

    Gamla ‘the Masada of the North’, is a special place which combines history, nature and landscape.

  • Golan Heights and Upper Galilee

    The Golan Heights and Upper Galilee are an entire microcosm of activities – there is just so much to do here!

  • Haifa

    The Bahai Gardens of Haifa are truly unique, combining a staircase of nineteen terraces, with geometric shapes, water features and intricate design.

  • Hula Valley

    The Hula Valley was once swamp area. Shortly after the establishment of the state of Israel, a decision was made to drain the swamp area in order to create agricultural land.

  • Jerusalem

    Traditionally earth's appointed meeting place with heaven, Jerusalem is a city of uncanny spiritual energy, profound creativity, and radical ideas.

  • Masada

    Arguably Israel’s most dramatic site, Masada’s mountain top ruins, set against the extraordinary backdrop of the Judean desert, are but a stage for the retelling of a heroic and ancient tale, now ingrained in national mythology.

  • Megiddo

    Ever wanted to see what Armageddon looks like? Well, this is your chance.

  • Mount Bental

    Mount Bental offers stunning views of the Golan, extending all the way into Syria.

  • Nazareth

    The cradle of Christianity, the home of Jesus, is a city brimming with historical significance and holy churches, including the sacred Church of the Annunciation.

  • Nimrod Castle

    Nimrod Castle is a site which is often overlooked but absolutely ought not to be.

  • Quasr El Yehud

    Today Qasr al-Yahud is a scenic and peaceful spot for contemplation, and for baptisms.

  • Qumran

    Qumran is the site of one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the twentieth century.

  • Ramon Crater

    The Ramon Crater is quite a site to behold. It is the largest ‘erosion crater’ (maktesh) in the world, and is a stunning work of nature.

  • Rosh Hanikra

    This site of natural beauty is a treasure to behold!

  • Safed

    Safed (or Tzfat) is the ancient mystical centre of kabbalah, where you will wander through time worn cobbled streets, exploring age old synagogues, ducking in and out of art galleries, craft shops and charming cafes.

  • Sea of Galilee

    Swim or boat on the serene Sea of Galilee, and visit the ancient synagogues and churches nestled on the shores.

  • Tel Aviv - Jaffa

    Tel Aviv is a sensual, good time city where the joie de vivre is tangible. Cafés buzz with constant chatter, twenty-four hour restaurants and bars serve unimaginably delicious fare, and the long stretches of sandy beaches always beckon.

  • Tel Dan

    Tel Dan is a wonderful site combining the great outdoors with biblical remains from the times of King Jeroboam.  

  • The Dead Sea

    The naturally oxygen rich air is infused with vapours rising from the mineral rich Sea.

  • Zippori

    Zippori is one of the most beautiful of Israel’s national parks, both for its views of nature (the name Zippori comes from the Hebrew ‘Zippor’ meaning bird, because of the birds’ eye view afforded from here), and its ancient human art in the form of mosaics.
