Hiking in Israel


"Life Begins at the End of your Comfort Zone."

Neale Donald Walsch


We lead day hikes and treks that cut through all of Israel through challenging and fun trails. We provide services for independent hikers on the Israel Trail, Abraham Trail and we can also guide you in day hikes or long journeys. Our trips will reveal to you the wild scenery of Israel, you will get to see hidden springs in the heart of the desert and you will enjoy the serenity that Israel's nature has to offer.

Desert Oasis Hiking- Wadi Al Qelt

For all you Nature and Adventure lovers out there, Wadi Qelt in the Judean desert is calling out for you.  Book with WILD TRAILS for a spectacular experience. The Adventure: Wadi Al Qelt is one of the most beautiful canyons the Israeli desert has to offer. This stream (which is, by some researchers, a geological border crossing between the Samarian desert and the Judean desert) is a huge and magnificent oasis that really gets the meaning of a ‘’Desert Jungle’’. The length of the stream is about 30 Kilometers (18.6 miles for you Americans) and starts in the Jerusalem neighborhood ‘’Neve Ya’akov’’, a neighborhood that sits on top of the Drainage Divide, overlooking the breathtaking vista of the desert. Prat stream, being an oasis, has always been and still is a place for both settlers and nomads alike. Near the stream, along with its banks, lies many pieces of evidence telling the stories of long gone civilizations, as well as the signs for the new settlers. ‘’Kubur Bnei Israel’’, recognized by some researchers as the true tomb of Rachel, the hanging monasteries built on top of its cliffs, the houses and herds of the Bedouin shepherds, the Jewish settlements, the ancient city of Jericho and the many ruins of the ancient settlements, all of these being examples of the lifeline which is Prat stream. Prat steam originates from three main fountains: Ein Prat, Ein Mabua, and Ein Kelt. This special trip to Wadi Qelt is an enchanting hike into the heart of a magnificent oasis. This special trip will be guided by Wild-Trails Adventure leader which specializes in this field.  Even if you’ve been to the stream and its fountains before, this is your chance to enjoy a great quality, professional guided tour.

The Israeli top desert Trekking

To say this wild trail is for everyone will be a lie. Located in the heart of an active military training zone, the trek from Mt Karkom to Mt Ramon is forbidden almost all year long but well known as the top Israeli desert trekking with the finish line on the highest pick of the Israeli desert mountains overlooking Makhtesh Ramon. 3 times a year we get the permission to travel to this amazing part of the Negev Highland desert, for four days we’ll be crossing through the desolate wilderness of the Negev mountains. Even after covering every inch of the area, we always get excited before going to this magnificent, wild place. So, are you coming or what?! The Adventure: Our journey will begin on top of the off-road vehicles, taking us very deep into the wilderness. After the lift we’ll continue by foot, climbing Mt Karkom, Mt Haspas, Mt Arif and Mt Ido, after which we’ll cross the Ramon crater and climb to the top of the Negev’s highest peak, which is the peak of Mt Ramon. This is a challenging trek, but it’ll no doubt leave you jaw-dropped due to the sights of its amazing vistas. The road we’ll walk is no doubt one of the most beautiful Israel has to offer, in an area posing a challenge for logistics and requires an in-depth knowledge of the terrain This great journey will be guided by an experienced guide from ‘’Wild Trails’’. Even if you’ve done trekking before, or have been to this area specifically, this is your chance to enjoy sophisticated logistics that’ll help you make the most out of this experience. Not to mention the awesome companions and the professional guiding, making this expedition all the more enjoyable
