Where to go
The map of Israel can helpfully be thought of as an elongated diamond shape, and can be divided into four quadrants: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the North, and the South.
Because the country is so small, it is possible to tour all four quadrants in ten nights or so. Starting Central/ East lies Israel’s unmissable capital city of Jerusalem: ancient, spiritual and complex. Jerusalem is also the base from which most people tour the historically rich and scenic Judean desert. Just an hour to the West, and yet a world away, is Tel Aviv: young, fun and hedonistic with competing beach and tech scenes.
The North of the country is green and lush, with rivers and lakes intertwined with an extraordinary gamut of historical sites from ancient synagogues and churches, to Roman and Crusader remains. The Desert of the South, the Negev, offers some of the most compelling wilderness scenery in the Middle East. According to your preference, the Negev is a place to contemplate, or alternatively an adventure playground, and is also the gateway to Petra and Jordan. This short sketch cannot begin to do justice to Israel’s diversity and complexity – you will have to come and tour Israel with us to understand the possibilities here!
