Israel – A Hidden Gem?

Israel has an incredible past and is shaping up to have an amazing future. It has much to offer travellers from all walks of life.

Various beach activities in Tel Aviv.

Flying High in Tel Aviv.

Israel is part of the Holy Land and it has ties with the three major monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This creates a melting pot of culture and religion which is fascinating for all visitors. From the rich history of the religious sites which attracts pilgrims as well as sightseers, to the modern buzz of Tel Aviv, or the feeling of super buoyancy bobbing on the Dead Sea,  you will not be disappointed with a holiday in Israel.

A common reason for a trip to Israel is to journey through the Holy Land with visits to Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Nazareth among other places where you can walk in the steps of Jesus. Another reason is the unforgettable experience of floating in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. The Dead Sea has long been renowned for it’s healing properties and after a day in the sun floating high on it’s surface, I am sure you’d agree!

Jerusalem

Another major draw for some travellers is the night life and modern lifestyle of Tel Aviv who’s beaches have been voted some of the top urban beaches in the world. On top of that, Israelis see the end of the day at sunset and  who wouldn’t love a culture who sees the new day beginning when the sun goes down? With ample opportunity for sights, relaxation and nightlife why not make Israel next on your travel to-do list?

Encounters offers our 8 day Holy Land Journey with weekly departures from only £949 per person. This is a great alternative to just any old week on a beach, you will go home with memories which will last a lifetime.
