If you have kids who need to be kept busy – quite literally – we offer a plethora of active options including biking and hiking throughout the country. Biking and hiking can mean anything from an hour’s leg stretching activity in a nature reserve, to a multi-day adventure which will challenge you both physically and mentally. You might also consider adding some caving, foraging, and jumping off the occasional cliff (rapeling with a rope and safety harness of course!). Whatever level of intensity you decide is right for your family, we promise that your adventure will be set within breath-taking scenery, and will include smatterings of historical, cultural and gastronomic highlights.
Further activities for active kids include interactive understanding about military and counter-terrorist techniques, and desert camping which involves 24 hours of desert jeeping, hiking and rappelling including a night under the stars and memory family time around the campfire.
Although the summers in Israel are pretty hot, there are great water activities from the very North to the very South of the country. In the North there are wonderful water hikes, and the refreshing fresh water lake of the ‘Sea’ of Galilee, as well as kayaking in the Jordan river. We also love the incredible experience of diving amongst antiquities at Caesarea – a totally different way to experience history. In the centre of Israel the beaches of Tel Aviv are a must! Tel Aviv has miles of golden sandy beaches which stretch all along the city’s length from the Namal Tel Aviv to the Namal Jaffa (Tel Aviv port to Jaffa port). All beaches are manned by well trained professional life guards. As well as building sun castles and splashing about it the waves, older kids might also like to try stand up paddling boarding, surfing or a game of ‘matkot’ which the locals are crazy about – it is like beach tennis or ping pong and can keep kids occupied for hours! Further South, your family holiday will of course also involve smearing mud over the entire body before floating on the Dead Sea – floating on water is a joyful surprise for all of us, but for kids all the more so. And further South still, the Red Sea of Eilat and its sandy beaches are great fun for little kids with sand buckets and big kids who want to beach lounge, snorkel or scuba dive.
Sky High Adventures
If you really want to infuse some adrenaline into the kids, consider giving them the unique experience of touring Israel from the skies. There is nothing like a helicopter ride to get the family’s spirits sky high, and make them feel they have experienced something truly special.
We are beyond thankful for our perfect experience in Israel! Your service was a perfect fit for our family and every single detail was seamless.
