I have been guiding since
1990, most of the time in the desert.
I carry out different
kinds of treks throughout Israel and Sinai, from standard tourist
routine tours to hard-core extreme hiking. I'm an expert in Israeli
wildlife, especially birds, reptiles and mammals. I have a wide knowledge
of Israeli history and archaeology.
I can carry out also jeep
tours, hiking combined with outdoor camping and other attractions.
"YOUTH GROUP" FOR ADULTS
On a monthly basis I
guide a group in special places in the Israeli desert. The hikes are for
experienced hikers that like also to have fun. It's a steady group,
but we welcome people to join. This year's program includes one hike
in the Negev, two in the Judean desert, one to Sinai and more.
In March, April and May
I am guiding hiking tours to Sinai, S anta Catharina area.
On the footsteps of the exodus in Pessah? 4 - days
trek in the Negev desert:
This hike will bring us to the mysterious mount Karkom. Upon this
mountain and around it, thousands of ancient sites were found: rock
drawings, headstones, temples and alters show this was a very sacred
place. This is now one of the leading candidates claiming to be Mt.Sinai.
We will start the hike at Mt. Romem, where a 3 kms wall, about 4000
years old, forms a perfect strait line connecting to the highest peak
around, Mt. Ramon, on which stand many temples dating as old. We will cross
the largest Makhtesh in the world, climb a hill containing shark teeth
from 80 million years ago and camp beneath it. The next two days will
bring us to Mt Arif with its two makhteshim and other sites. The price
140$ including a jeep to carry our camping gear to the camp sites
and fullboard from the second day.
5 day treks to Sinai
Granite peaks of more than 2000 meters in altitude, orchards of apricots,
grapes, almonds and berries, monastic sites and fresh water springs
await us as we reach the Santa Catharina region in the south of Sinai.
A 5 day trek will allow us breath in that experience. The trip will
start at the Taba border-crossing near Eilat. A van will take us directly
to the mountains. We will hike most of the day, spend our nights in
the different orchards to which camels will bring our sleeping gear
and extras. On the last day we will stop for lunch and snorkelling
at the beach. The cost is 230$ including border-tax, fullboard and
Treks and jeep tours in Turkey
Arranged by Eco tours (www.eco.co.il),
I guide those trips to Turkey:
9 days trek in the kachkar ridge (3937m): Rivers,
forests, snow-covered peeks even in July and authentic lifestyle make
this trip special.
8 days trek in the Ala-dalar ridge (3723m at Embler
mountain) and Capadoccia: A more wild hard-core hike combined with
the fascinating scenery of Capadoccia.
7-8 days Jeep tours in both regions.
Here is an example of a recommended plan:
desert hike from the ridge to the Dead-sea
Day one: Starting from Arad, the town on the edge of
the Judean desert and walking the Kidod wadi. Visiting one of the
largest desert caves and crossing the gorge with the assistance of
ropes. Camping near the eastern edge of the desert plateau, overlooking
the! Dead-sea rift valley.
Day two: Walk north to the famous fortress
of Masada, were the dramatic ending of the Jewish revolt against the
Romans took place 2000 years ago. Walk down the snake path to the
camping site near wadi Zeelim.
three: A long day spent in the "grand canyon" of the Judean
desert: the Zeelim wadi, dealing with aspects in desert survival.
Overnight at Ein-gedi field study center.
four: Relaxing amongst the pools and waterfalls of Ein-gedi
nature reserve, and bathing in the Dead sea, the lowest spot on Earth.
