The land of Israel, located at the heart of the levant region, is a unique place that connects three continents. From South to North, the landscape of Israel is constantly changing, from the Negev desert to the Hermon mountain. In the first part we will start in Eilat, near the Red Sea, known as a unique spot of coral reefs in the middle east. Following the Arava valley where fields of date palms paint the view. We will then cross the hyper arid Negev desert until the Ramon crater, a one of a kind geological area, colored by various types of stones. In the second part we will explore many Wadis (intermitent desert rivers), until we arrive to Sde Boker, home of the first kibbutz in the desert. In the third part we will reach the Dead Sea area, known as the lowest point on earth, and enjoy amazing views of the Jordan mountains across the still water body. In the final part, we will go up hill from the Judean desert to a complete different ecosystem, the Jerusalem mountains, through pine, cypress and oak forests. Finally arriving to the ancient old city of Jerusalem, home of the sacred temple builded by King Solomon. Each day will be accompanied by yoga, meditation sessions and conferences led by local people, who will take us on a spiritual journey of inner discovery and a collective pilmigrage.
