If it’s a city break, a relaxing rest in the sun or an adrenaline-filled adventure that your customers are looking for, Israel has it all. Though small in size, Israel packs a punch when it comes to exciting activities, world-class sightseeing and unforgettable experiences.
Visitors can explore the biblical city of Jerusalem, unwind on one of the five miles of golden sandy beaches in Tel Aviv, or embark on a desert experience and cool off in the Dead Sea. Israel is also home to some of the best-known historical sites in the world. Significant places of interest for three of the world’s monotheistic religions – Christianity, Judaism and Islam – can all be found in Jerusalem.

But it’s not just in the capital that visitors can appreciate Israel’s heritage. The world’s first copper mine is located in the southern city of Eilat, while Beit Guvrin-Maresha National Park in the north is home to some phenomenal ancient caves.
On the Mediterranean coast, the cosmopolitan city of Tel Aviv is an excellent city-break destination, full of lively beaches and vibrant markets. When the sun sets, Tel Aviv’s buzzing nightlife comes alive, with a wide array of bars and restaurants where visitors can dance the night away.
Head out of Israel’s cities and embrace the outdoors, whether it’s following in the footsteps of pilgrims by hiking the Israel Trail or embarking on a jeep tour through the Negev Desert. Then make time for the Dead Sea, the lowest place in the world at 430 metres below sea level. Floating on its salty surface is a true bucket‑list experience.
