The most beautiful places to visit in the Holy Land

With a superficy of 22,145 (8,630 sq. miles) Israël is well known for the
diversity of its landscape. The tallest mountain of Israel located at its northern
border; the Mt Hermon is only a 6 hours drive from the beaches of Eilat, the
southernmost city of Israel. In between you can find mountains, valleys, different
types of deserts, craters and the lowest waterpoint in the world.
Here are six of the most beautiful places you must visit on your trip to Israel:

Table of Contents

Dead sea

No trip to Israel is complete without a dip in the dead sea, the lowest body of water
on earth. Due to its high percentage of salinity, you can effortlessly float in the water.
Be ready to relax while admiring the Judean and Jordanian mountains.
The dead sea mud is very rich in minerals and you will notice people applying it on
their face and body. Don’t forget to do the same!

Ramon Crater

One of its kind, the peaceful crater of Ramon in the Negev desert can be admired in a few different ways. You can enjoy a panoramic view of the crater from the nearest city, Mitzpe Ramon, take a jeep tour of the crater, or hike one of the numerous trails. The crater is also a great stargazing destination which can be a good family activity. The best month for stargazing is in August. 

The Rosh Hanikra Caves

Located at the border of Lebanon, this natural landscape is breathtaking. Over the years the waves have eroded the cliffs and formed a cave where beautiful blue water circulates. The cable cars will bring you on top of the cliffs which offer a panoramic view of the mediterranean sea. 

Mount Arbel

This national park offers a few trails for beginners as well as more advanced hikers
making it a great spot for families. Most travelers come here for the magnificent
viewpoint of the sea of Galilee.

Red Canyon

You have guessed it, the canyon takes its name from the redness of the rocks
accentuated by the sunlight. Located in the mountains of Eilat it is referred to as
Israel’s mini “Grand Canyon”.
You can choose between a 2km or 5km trail and combine this trip with a visit to the
Timna park or the beaches of Eilat.

The Nimrod Fortress

Much less known, this fortress is well worth the detour. The castle was built by the
Ayyubids in the 13th century at a strategic point near the Syrian border ro prevent
the crusaders from attacking Damascus.
You can enter the fortress by one of the hidden entrances to see the remains of the
800 year old castle. From there, you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the lush green
golan, the Hermon and Syria.

We  hope these help, for a real Israel adventure you can start your day in the mountains
and end it in the desert, or even watch the sunrise from the dead sea and the sun set
from the Rosh Hanikra caves.
