Best Guide for the Arava Valley

The Arava Valley is blooming!  That’s why I’ve decided to write up the best guide for the Arava Valley. The Arava is one of the country’s most remote areas, just about a two-hour drive from Tel Aviv. Recently, there has been a growing trend of agricultural tourism. After the world had developed the concept, I checked out what it looked like in the local version. I discovered a sense of Italy there and returned to tell you about it!

So what kind of attractions can you do once you reach the area? So, one option is Bein Hashitin Farm. The Bein Hashitin Farm was established by the Bein Hashitin Association in Moshav Hatzeva in 2017. The farm is spread over ​​seven dunams adjacent to the Moshav Hatzeva agricultural fields. Emphasis on the small details will turn the visit for the farm visitors into an authentic experience. In addition, you get to work in an actual agricultural field.

In Tzukim, there is a fantastic activity for kids. So it’s an experiential and unique activity of three hours. The day will start with a grazing lesson on the field and how to herd the sheep. Then you’ll go with the dogs and the flock of sheep for a two-hour walk in the area. Also, you will walk in the desert landscape, stop to let the sheep eat, and make tea from desert plants. We will learn about dogs, sheep, and desert plants in the process. You need to get in touch with Adi at 0523868909.

Let’s Go Stargazing!

When astronomy, mythology, the universe, and we meet in the heart of the desert. Alon, our guide, will try to ask questions like: Is there no end to the stars? What is a star? What is a galaxy? And a planet? What is the distance from Earth to prominent stars in the night sky? How does the picture of the sky change during the night and with the seasons? The clear air and the lack of “light pollution” make the starry Arava Valley sky a spectacular spectacle you will not forget for long.

Observe the sky with telescopes, get to know constellations and planets, taste fascinating mythology stories, and indulge in a cup of dessert tea. Usually, the activity is about an hour and a half. You can get in touch with Alon on his mobile at 0545234197. The location can vary, but it is in the area of Ein Yahav.
