About

The walk provides a social and practical method for completing the Israeli National Trail.
We take care of food and water provision while carrying your heavy equipment and, most importantly, providing an opportunity to meet new people and share musical and artistic talents. However, we expect the group to be responsible for setting up the camp, preparing food, making fire, etc. Specifically, we want to share the delights of Israel with international walkers while disproving the negative stereotypes sometimes portrayed in the media with our warm and welcoming environment that is open to all!
Developing leadership skills in a diverse group.

The daily trail is self guiding, each person walks at his own pace and everyone must arrive at the night camp.

 All the trails are marked on the trailer and are explained at the morning and night circle meetings.

 On the journey there is an understanding between the walkers to help each other and leave no one behind therefore even if you don't have navigation or field experience you will always be able to find someone to help.

The trail is clearly signed in the field and in the application of the Israel National Trail

Each day in the group WhatsApp is shown the location of the next camp .

The camp crew will come to pick up anyone who has lost their way.

Communal tasks & self leadership

We have a lottery between the walkers and the person chosen joins the crew for between 1-3 days, to experience the trip from another perspective . Each person will get their chance.

 The communal tasks at the camp require daily leadership so each day the chosen leader will organize the tasks from the packing up the camp, morning circle and till the night circle.

That same day the leader will not take part in the walk but travel with the team.

In order for the trip to succeed and feel the experience of life in nature, we have made a list of daily tasks and each person will take his/her active part.
