The wonders of the Negev Desert make for an amazing family adventure day. We’ve prepared a 1 day itinerary (although this tour can easily be upgraded to last for longer with overnight accommodation), popular with family or friend groups from across the world who wish to see the beauty of the desert, experience the fun that it has to offer, and understand a little about the history of the region. We’ve included some of the most popular activities we have to offer in the Negev region, as well as some of the core sites that will provide unrivalled background into the region.

The one day itinerary is based on a family group starting in central Israel (Tel Aviv or Jerusalem area) and traveling south by road. It is also possible to do this itinerary on the way to or from Eilat.

This is a recommended itinerary which we will adjust based on your personal interests. We have outlined a popular structure for the day. Please contact us to customise the tour and receive our opinion on the optimal structure for your family.
