It may be at the bottom of or ten most fun things to do in Israel, but Keshet Cave is known as the most beautiful view in Israel with the highest point in the Western Galilee. Once a real cave, the ceiling of the cave eroded away millennia in the past, leaving only an arch which gives the site its name. You can rappel off the mammoth natural stone arch bridging the mountains, sailing through the air with an amazing panoramic view surrounding you.

Located in the Judean Desert, Nachal Chatzatzon is the largest and longest canyon in the country. This is a beautiful hike enjoying the light of the moon and then watching the sun rise. This hike also includes rappels down three large dry waterfalls, including the longest rappel possible in Israel 120 meters down the highest cliff in the country. Depending on how much rain we received during the winter, this hike sometimes requires swimming in deep water. With dramatic scenery, unique birds and desert animals, it is a hard, long, and very challenging hike, but absolutely amazing and well worth the effort.
A beautiful canyon in the southern Judean Desert, Nachal Rachaf is one of the deepest and narrowest canyons in the country with magnificent views of the Dead Sea, Jordan, and the Judean desert. Once we enter the canyon, we will go through narrow passages, climb down ladders, and encounter pools that we will need to swim across. There are two very high waterfalls, and the only way to pass them is to rappel off the towering rock ledges into pools of water far below. We will see many small animals, birds, and possibly even deer that come to drink from the water that fills the canyon after the rains. This canyon adventure is Fun Fun Fun!
