What to visit
One of the most hype and modern cities in Israel where the millenary history leads way to a new wave of design and a more modern culture. Tel Aviv is one of the most spectacular cities you will visit in Israel.
The White City of Tel Aviv has been categorized as a World Heritage and is one of the most interesting places to visit in Israel.
Very few cities in the world emanate such spirituality as we feel in Jerusalem. It is the core center for the three monotheistic religions we know today: Judaism, Christianism, and Islamism.
Founded by King David more than 3,000 years ago, Jesus Christ lived and died in Jerusalem and since then, according to the Muslim religion, Mahoma ascended to heaven. So… can you imagine another city more mystical than Jerusalem?
GALIELA AND THE NORTH OF ISRAEL
The north of Israel, also known as Galilea, is formed by the regions of Low Galilea and High Galilea, as well as the Occidental Galilea and the Mediterranean coast.
High Galilea is targeted at people who love nature and it is home to major landmarks like the Hula Natural Reserve, the trails and waterfalls at Banias and mount Hermon.
Low Galilea is also formed with trails, panoramic highways, pools and biblical landmarks.
In Occidental Galilea we can find ourselves surrounded by cities filled with charm like Rosh Pina and Safed, where you will find art galleries and small independent boutiques. At the coast, you will find yourselves surrounded by beautiful beaches like the one in Rosh Hanikra with its caves and rock formations to which you will arrive via cableway.
The Dead Sea, one of the most wonderful beauties of our world, is a salt lake situated at the lowest point on earth, it is located at more than 300 meters below the sea level, which makes the Dead Sea into the lowest salt lake in the world. Is rough conditions make it so that no life can exist in it, hence the name the Dead Sea.
It is an experience like no other to submerge yourself in its waters, floating on them and cover your body with the mud that provides vast amounts of good properties for our skin.
The weather in Israel is characterized for having very sunny and warm summers (from April to October) and soft winters (from November to March). In general, there are six hours of light every day during winter and twelve on summer time.
There is a phenomenon that happens in the summer that is called khamsin (in Hebrew sharav), which is the arrival of hot and dry winds coming from the Arabian desert, these winds bring with them very high temperatures.

It is known as the 8th wonder of the old world and it is also considered one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Petra is without a doubt Jordan’s most precious gem of a city and its most important tourist attraction. It is a marvelous and colossal city carved into rose-red nabateu rocks. The Nabateans were a hard-working Arabic tribe that established themselves there more than 2,000 years ago and made it into a very important junction for the silk, spice and various other trading routes that linked China, India and the south of Arabia with Syria, Greece, Egypt, and Rome.
Also known as the Valley of the Moon, is a protected desert wilderness in southern Jordan, it is a valley cut into sandstone and granite rock.
