Summer in Israel! Possibly the best time of the year, as the warm weather bring a new level of warm vibes to every inch of the country. School’s out. The beach is definitely in. As is anywhere else where water is present. And every year, there’s a bunch of cool new things for summer in Israel to add to the list and keep the experience fresh and interesting. Updated for 2016, take a look through our list of the best things for this summer in Israel!
Sunrise Hikes at Masada
The hot days make way for the evenings and early mornings, and at Masada that means a sunrise climb, beginning as the sun begins to emerge over the far side of the Dead Sea, and illuminates the Moab Mountains of Jordan as a silhouette, reflecting in the salty waters of the Dead Sea. A magical experience, our Masada Sunrise tour is available three times every week from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. And if you need another reason to join, after Masada, you’ll have the chance to walk in the oasis at Ein Gedi, and then cool off floating in the waters of the Dead Sea, and bathing in the muds.
By the way, for those who don’t want the sunrise, or the hike, our regular Masada and Dead Sea Tour is still available every day through the summer, fully guided and fully remarkable.
Water-Based Summer in the North of Israel
The north somehow implies cold, but summer in Northern Israel is nothing like that, with the same warm temperatures as the rest of the country. But, one thing that the North can boast, is great water features. Go kayaking on the River Jordan and cool off from the summer heat in one of the funnest ways possible. Or, for the more adventurous, explore the Black Canyon, one of Israel’s most wonderful natural gems, and cool off with a canyoning water hike, definitely one experience that you won’t forget too fast.
Coding Bootcamps in Tel Aviv
Let’s not forget that Tel Aviv is the cultural capital of the Startup Nation. And what better way to celebrate being in the Startup Nation than by earning new skills and gaining experience in in-demand jobs in the high-tech industry such as coding and digital marketing. Thanks to Elevation Academy’s coding bootcamp, as well as their digital marketing courses, you can learn professional coding skills in only 12 weeks time, and a professional digital marketing career in 8 weeks. Even better, these bootcamps set you up with the know-how you need to succeed in these industries through internships. Instead of returning home with small souvenirs, you have the opportunity to return home with new possibilities and first hand experience from industry experts, expanding your career potential.
Learning in Tel Aviv offers the best of both worlds: studying with knowledgeable professionals in a fun and beautiful backdrop. If you are looking for a way to invest in yourself while vacationing, this bootcamp is a great way to do so.
Petra Is still a Wonder of the World
Every day throughout the summer, we have over five guaranteed departure tours leaving Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Eilat, heading to the ‘rose red city’ of Petra. Don’t let the heat put you off, because the magic and awe of Petra will never cease to amaze. The tour options to Petra this summer are available in one day, two day, and three day formats, and . Read more about the ways visit Petra and take the opportunity to have a once in a lifetime opportunity.
From summer festivals such as the Sunbeat Festival to electronic parties including Avicii, big name concerts such as Elton John, Wiz Khalifa, Pat Metheny, Duran Duran, Tame Impala, and The Scorpions, and huge street events including Pride Parade, the Tel Aviv White Night, and the Water War, summer in Israel is full of awesome events, and great vibes.
