Setting Off Into the Biblical Desert

Israel Today’s week-long Negev hike gets underway with participants experiencing the unique atmosphere and landscapes of the desert.

After our successful German speaking guided tour through the Biblical Desert concluded last week, our English guided hike got underway yesterday.

The adventurers will hike a large part of the southern portion of the Israel National Trail from the vicinity of Sde Boker, south of Beersheva, all the way down to the Red Sea resort of Eilat over the course of the next 7 days.

All participants were put through a physical test to make sure they are up to this unique challenge.

Stay tuned for additional reports from the desert in the coming days!


Setting out and looking forward to the experience.


A sustenance break is always welcome.


A dip in a pool of rainwater is always refreshing.
