Our group ended the day by visiting the Ascent [...]

After an early morning meet and greet at LAX and several hours of travel, bus 599 is officially in the Holy Land! First, we met our wonderful tour guide who welcomed us to the country. We then headed up north and are staying on a beautiful kibbutz. Today we will start with an overlook of [...]


Thank you to Israel Outdoors alum David Fox for sharing.

What an amazing group! We began with an opening ceremony at the Mediterranean Sea. Jet lagged and all, our enthusiastic group hopped off the bus at the sea, took off their shoes, and spontaneously ran into the water to take a quick foot dip! It was a beautiful moment. Chen, our Israeli tour guide, then [...]

The group is doing great. We landed really late on Monday night and drove directly north to the city of Tiberias to go to sleep.
