the Great *Israeli* Outdoors Gallery
At Israel Paths and People we believe that nature touches everyone. Israel's natural settings are incredibly diverse - from the green Galilee in the north to the dramatic desert in the south. Walks and hikes in Israel are not only about natural beauty but also tell amazing stories of history. Visit places of historical or religious significance, ancient fortresses and synagogues. Throughout time, the landscape has influenced the history of the land - and it continues to do so today. We invite you to include nature into your Israel activities.
Seasons of Israel
During winter and spring the countryside comes to life with endless wildflowers in every color and a soft green covers the landscape. Even the desert is pleasant for long hikes and grows plants and flowers. Israel boasts two major bird migratory routes and is an important stop before they continue over the desert to Africa. These seasons allow for exploring nature and historical sites that otherwise are too hot to enjoy.
Summer in Israel is hot and sunny. Therefore we choose outdoor adventures accordingly, such as forests, springs, rivers and water activities. Hike in the desert at daybreak or enjoy moonlight hiking adventures.
