Israel National Trail
Exploring the Holy Land

The Israel National Trail is a hiking path that was inaugurated in 1995. In fact, the trail crosses the entire country of Israel. So its northern end is at Dan; near the Lebanese border in the far north of the country; and it extends to Eilat at the southernmost tip of the Holy Land. Right on the Red Sea. It stretches to a length of 1,015 km (631 Miles). The trail is marked with three stripes (white, blue, and orange); and takes an average of 45-60 days to complete. The Israel National Trail has been listed in National Geographic’s 20 most “epic trails.” It is described as a trail that “delves into the grand scale of biblical landscapes as well as the everyday lives of the modern Israeli.





The Israel National Trail (INT) was conceived by Avraham Tamir a journalist and hiker who hiked the Appalachian Trail in the late 1970s and Ori Dvir, hiker, educator, and one of the founders of The Society for Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI). The INT is over 1000 kilometers long and is marked, managed, and maintained by The Israel Trails Committee which also blazes, marks and maintains the 15,000 kilometers of hiking trails all over Israel.
