Information about Israel
Israel may be a small country, but that's what's so great about it. Whether in the South, the Center, or the North, there is a special place for each one of us to discover.
Some of you are lovers of the sea – maybe divers. In the south, the Red Sea waters will stun you with their beautiful coral and exotic fish in and around the resort city of Eilat. Or you may want to connect with your inner self and find peace and tranquility in the powerful silence of the desert, or go on an extreme hike in its remarkable landscape.
The Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth, is amazing, with its relaxing and healing mineral salt water.
In the holy city of Jerusalem you can renew your connection to your religion, or learn about another one, as you wonder at (while wandering about) ancient structures that are hundreds if not thousands of years old.
Of course, if you have simply come to enjoy the sand and the sea, sunbathe, or watch the dynamics of the people on the beach, Israel is blessed with a beautiful Mediterranean coastline.
Moving northward, the landscape becomes greener, and the weather more comfortable. You can experience the many hills with streams and rivers all around, where you can travel over pastoral trails, whether by car, by bike, or on foot.
The Sea of Galilee, Israel largest sweet water lake, is the perfect spot for a refreshing dip in the water.
At the most northern corner of this great land, you can enjoy the one and only ski resort in Israel (open only in the winter, of course).
