Flood hunting

Zur Buchungsanfrage

Beautiful, Amazing, Powerful, Deadly… There's a lot to be said about that force of nature we call flood. But why speak about it when we can get up close and personal, to see with our own eyes? .

The Adventure:

The floods phenomenon happens mostly in the winter time. We could try to describe what it’s like to witness that force of nature combined with the wild desert scenery, but it’ll be close to impossible. That feeling you get when a peaceful dry channel is filled with a powerful, violent wave that takes everything with it, all in a manner of seconds! This is really something else. The sound of the crushing rocks, the scenery of the flood and the drainage “mushrooms” in the Dead Sea, all of these create an unforgettable experience.

There’s a good reason why it’s called “flood hunting”. This hunt requires a great amount of knowledge, endless patience and extra caution, but the worst thing - it’s highly addictive.

And provides a helluva lot of fun.

How does it work:

Every time the weather forecast says there is a chance for “flash floods”, we pull out the coffee and cookies kits, and set up a schedule. We begin with going over synoptic maps, and start analyzing drainage basins. Eventually we set out to the outside for some flood hunting.

Something to note:

The nature of this adventure is very spontaneous, and beings ready beforehand is not always possible. The flood hunting really depends on the weather, sometimes the floods never come, and this whole tour is subject to change according to the weather and the decisions made by the guide.
