Heartland Tour (Samaria)
The Shomron is where Israel began as a nation. It is difficult to understand the Israel experience without feeling its heartbeat. Retrace the footsteps and experiences of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph on the Path of the Forefathers. See where the Isralites crossed the Jordan after 40 years of wandering the desert and travel their path to Jericho, Gilgal and Shiloh, the first capitol of Israel and where the Mishkan (Tabernacle) stood for 369 years. Be where the 12 tribes were given their portions of the land, Hanna uttered her prayer, Samuel the Prophet judged and Eli the High Priest served. Stand on Mt. Kabir where Abraham was promised the Land of Israel to his descendants for eternity. See the Mediterranean Sea, Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea from a single spot on the "continental divide" of Israel. Overlook ancient Shechem (Nablus) and Joseph's Tomb from the village of the Shomronim, where customs and dress has stood still for over 2,000 years. This tour is jam packed with beautiful mountain scenery, fresh water springs, fertile valleys and at every turn there is another biblical or historical site as well as numerous sites from the Crusades, Ottoman Empire, British Mandate, War of Independence and Six Day War. From the very beginning of mankind as we know it to the modern-day settlements that are constantly in the news, this is Israel's past, present and future - Israel's heartland. A typical day tour would be: Eretz Breishit (camel ride at Wadi Qelt), Beit El (site of Jacob's Ladder), Ofra (first settlement in Shomron after 6-Day War), Shiloh (ancient city, first capitol of Israel and site of the Tabernacle for 369 years), Kida (Vineyard Scenic drive to overview of where the Children of Israel crossed the Jordan), Harel (Gvaot Winery), Har Bracha, Kfar haShomronim (Har Grizim and overview into Shechem/Josheph's Tomb), Elon Moreh to Har Kabir (where Avraham stood when he was promised Eretz Yisrael to his decendants for eternity), Tatzpit Shloshet haYamim (from which you can see the Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee and the Mediterranean Ocean), Har Sartaba (highest point in Jordan Valley and first place fires were lit to announce Rosh Chodesh).
Ein Gedi, Masada, Qumran, Nachal David and the Dead Sea are the highlights. Beautiful stark desert mountains, oases and valleys peppered with side trips to places like Macabbean hideouts, ancient settlements, remote monasteries, hidden oases, Bedouin encampments and much more.
Travel north parallel to the Jordan River to Beit Shean, Mt. Tabor, Tiberias, Sea of Galilee, the mystical city of Safed, the Golan and Mt. Hermon. Visit digs of ancient cities, Yom Kippur War battle fields and much more.
Starting at Jaffa, the oldest port in the world to the modern marina in Tel Aviv, crossing the Yarkon River and going north on the Coastal Highway (Route 2) with the Mediterranean Sea a breath away. On to upscaled Herzaliya, beautiful Natanya, the Roman ruins of Caesarea, Haifa, the Phoenecian port city of Akko, Nahariya and on to the grottos and cable cars at Rosh Ha-Nikra on the Lebanese border.
Arava to Gulf of Aqaba Tour
Drive through the moon scape desert by way of Solomon's copper mines. A jeep tour of Mt. Shlomo, Timna Nature Reserve and on to Eilat. A boat ride on the Gulf of Aqaba to the Jordanian and Egyptian border and within sight of Saudi Arabia. Snorkeling, scuba diving and para-sailing can all be arranged. Overnight in Eilat with a visit to the underwater observatory, shark pool, a short swim with the dolphins and back by way of the Dead Sea.
Jewish Interest Tour
Beginning in Hebron, we visit the Cave of the Patriarchs (Ma'arath HaMachpela), burial site of Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah as well as Adam and Eve. Then off to a tour of the Old City of Jerusalem, the Western Wall, and see theTemple Mount. Then, travelling north on the Path of the Forefathers we cross the "green line" to Shiloh, Israel's first capitol. We will stand on the very site where the Tabernacle stood for 369 years and stroll through archaeologically uncovered homes, wine and olive presses and administrative buildings established by Joshua 14 years after crossing the Jordan River. We then head further north through the fields of Ephraim, the Biblical and modern bread basket of the region, and drive through the ancient Israelite village and modern Arab town of Howara on up to Mt. Grizim to an overlook of ancient (and Modern) Shechem (Nablus) and Josheph's Tomb. Mt. Eival is just beyond, Grizim and Eival being the two Biblical peaks known for the ceremony of the blessings and the curses. Time and daylight permitting we will continue to Mt. Kabir, the site from which Abraham was told to look in all directions and everything his eyes would see would belong to his generations thereafter. Close by is the Overlook of the Three Seas from which on a clear day you can see the Mediterranean Sea, Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee, namely, the State of Israel.

The country's western strip, stretching from Rosh Ha-Nikra in the north to the Sinai Peninsula in the south. The plain is 4-7 kilometers wide in the north, expanding as it moves southward to about 50 kilometers. The soil in the coastal plain is fertile; there are several water sources, and the region includes the country’s major transportation arteries. The coastal plain is densely populated with most of Israel's major cities, including Tel Aviv and Haifa. The plain is divided from north to south into the Galilee Plain, the Acre Plain, the Carmel Plain, the Sharon Plain, the Mediterranean Coastal Plain, and the Southern Coastal Plain. East of the coastal plain are the lowlands – moderate hills that create a transitional region between the coast and the mountains.
Galilee and Mountain Region:
The mountainous region stretches from Lebanon in the north to Eilat Bay in the south, between the coastal plain and the Jordan Valley Rift. Its highest peaks are the Galilee's Mt. Meron at 1,208 meters above sea level, Samaria's Mt. Ba’al Hatsor at 1,016 meters and the Negev's Mt. Ramon at 1,037 meters above sea level. The contiguity of the mountainous region is interrupted at two points by major valleys – the Yizre'el (Jezre'el) Valley separating the Galilee mountains from the hills of Samaria, and the Be'er Sheva-Arad Rift separating the Judean hills from the Negev highlands. The eastern slopes of the Samarian hills and Judean hills are the Samarian and Judean deserts.
The central Jezreel Valley, roughly 380 square kilometers in size, is bounded on the north by the Nazareth mountains and Mount Tabor, on the east and south by Mount Gilboa and the mountains of Samaria respectively, and on the west by Mount Carmel – all of which are Scriptural stars. The passes through these mountains have been significant in world history for thousands of years, emphasizing Israel’s role as a bridge linking Africa, Asia and Europe. Ancient caravans bearing merchandise and the innovations of far-off cultures and the armies of antiquity passed this way. This is attested to by the famed ruins of some 25 cities at Tel Megiddo, Tel Jezreel and other antiquities sites.
Jordan Valley Rift:
The rift extends the entire length of Israel from the northern town of Metula to the Red Sea in the south. The rift was caused by seismic activity, and is part of the Afro-Syrian rift which extends from the Syrian-Turkish border to the Zambezi River in Africa. Israel's largest river, the Jordan, flows through the Jordan Valley and includes Israel's two major lakes: the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), the largest body of fresh water in Israel, and the salt water Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. The Jordan Valley is divided from north to south into the Hula Valley, the Kinneret Valley, the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea Valley and the Arava.
The hilly Golan region is east of the Jordan River. The Israeli Golan Heights are the end of a large basalt plain, mostly located in Syria. North of the Golan Heights is Mt. Hermon, Israel's highest peak at 2,224 meters above sea level.
The Judean Desert is bordered by the Mountains of Judea to the west and by the Dead Sea to the East. It is considered a relatively small desert, spanning only 1,500 square kilometers, but it contains many fascinating nature reserves, historic sites, monasteries and primeval panoramas that make it an exciting and unique place to visit.
