The Israel Outdoors Vision: To share the beauty and wonder of Israel with Jewish young adults of all interests and backgrounds through an enlightening and enriching experience.

Our travel programs are curated to provide significant, dynamic experiences for our participants that will last long after the trip ends. We recognize that each participant experiences the trip in their own way that will be unique to their own understanding of the world. We also understand that part of that powerful insight is gained through the shared collective connections they will build with their peers, their staff, and Israel. Our passion is to provide a safe and welcoming environment to make this happen.

We believe experiencing Israel through physical activities like hiking and biking can provide a truly exceptional way to connect to the land. From the breathtaking heights of Masada, the beaches of the Mediterranean, the forests of Jerusalem, and the canyons of the Negev -each setting offers a meaningful and profound way to understand the history of this country and its people.

Israel Outdoors offers different ways to for participants to experience their Birthright Israel Gift. Whether through traditional touring or specialized experiences, our trips are unified by our commitment to provide enriching encounters with the land, the history, and the people of Israel!
