Desert Hike Day 2: From the Pits to the Spring

Tuesday, November 20, 2018 |  Aviel Schneider

We walked about 20 kilometers (almost 12.5 miles) on Monday, traveling from our campsite at the Remilia Pits to the area of Ein Akev, a wonderful natural spring that invited us for a swim.

After a great time of fellowship around the campfire, we all slept well in our tents, and rose bright and early the next day to continue our way along the Israel National Trail.

We set off at 6 AM this morning (Tuesday) amid a heavy fog that hid the sun and only added to the mystical atmosphere of the biblical desert.

Signing off, for now...

A well-deserved sleep after a long day's hike.

Our English-language NEGEV EXTREME hike will depart in just two more weeks!

If you'd still like to join us for this special experience, our English-language hike will be departing Sde Boker on December 2, and concluding in Eilat on December 9.

There are still a few places left!
