These are the hiking trips and treks planned for 2010: (partial list)

The Israel Trail: Northern section,  August 28th to September 7th

For fit hikers

The Israel National trail streches from the Lebanese border at the north, to the Egyptian border in the south.  It is over 900 km long, and goes through different landscapes. Walking the whole distance takes around two months. we are going to devide it into three sections, so we can make some effort during a shorter period and complete it in 40 days.

Our camping and kitchen gear is going to be carried by a vehicle, we will carry only our day packs. We will camp all nights outdoors, occasionally we will offer showers. We will have cooked dinners, a waking up treat (coffee, tea and cookies) and one picnic brunch a day – all provided.

The first section will take us from the Lebanese border to the Mediterranean coast, walking around 25-27  km per day. We will gather Saturday evening in the central bus station in Kiryat Shmona (reaching there independentlyby bus from all around the country), and have transportation to the camping site. We will start getting to know each other over a cup of tea and coffee (dinner is not included for that night), and retire to our sleeping bags. The trek will end in Caesaria, where you’ll get transportation to the Hadera central bus station.

The price is 1500$ per person, including: Guiding, escorting vehicle, food and transportation as mentioned.

More details and instructions would be sent to whoever is interested. 

Trekking in the Canyons of Jordan

Several treks to the canyons of Jordan are going to take place during this summer.

The treks involve hiking in flowing water inside breathtaking beautiful sandstone gorges with hanging gardens of fresh vegetation and date palm trees, camping outdoors and lots of water fun!

Please check the news section on my site for the exact dates!

The Israel trail crosses the country from the Lebanese border in the north to the Egyptian one in the south, more than 900 kilometers in length. On its way, it winds through the mountains of the Upper Galilee, the hills of the Lower Galillee, lake Kinneret (“Sea of Galillee”), the Carmel Mountain, the Coastal Plains, the Jerusalem Hills and the Negev Desert, ending in the Gulf of Eilat.

In the last few years it has become a trend for Israeli youngsters, to walk the whole length as a challenge, before going to the army service or right after completing it.
