Jeep Tours in the Negev Desert
Jeep tours offer panoramas which would otherwise not be seen
The Negev Desert is full of off-road trails which can be experienced by jeep. It is best to explore with the aid of an experienced guide who will know the terrain and keep you out of any danger. Jeep tours can generally be customized to meet your requirements, so if you have a specific interest, the tour can cater to that. The Negev can only be glanced at by passing through on the main highways, and taking a jeep safari enables you to explore the wadis and dunes, the ibexes and other creatures of the desert, and the unique flora and fauna that springs to life after just the smallest drop of rain.
The Negev is a magical place, and it is only when you actually venture into its depths that you can appreciate this. Popular places to take jeep tours in Israel’s Negev Desert are at the Ramon Crater, from the hotels at the Dead Sea, and as an excursion from Jerusalem. It is also popular and possible to take a Jeep tour in the Eilat region.
The Judean Desert which covers the area around the Dead Sea, and to the east and south of the city of Jerusalem is a rockier desert than the Negev. Although small in size, the Judean Desert is one of the most popular places for jeep tours in Israel due to its accessibility from the center of the country and Dead Sea.

Jeep Tours in The Golan
Jeep tours in Golan Heights provide a very different outlook to the desert of the south. Its remarkably green landscape, often Tuscan-like landscape is akin to that of Italy or the Alps, where wine groves straddle the hillsides and small quaint villages house artisans and little hotels. Away from the roads, amazing beauty and history can be seen in this, land. A jeep tour in the Galilee or Golan Heights will transcend unique and magical scenes, scenes that have importance in the Bible and have been settled for millennia. The Golan Heights is also a place to take jeep tours in Israel.
Passing through lush green forests, cool streams, and stopping for a dip at a cool spring or two, the Jerusalem Hills is a great place to experience by jeep. You’ll see ancient examples of human activity, as well as stunning scenery, and of course, exhilarating driving and experiences.
