Israel Family Vacation

A Family Vacation to Israel is an exciting opportunity to learn about the culture and history as well as explore the land of Israel with a jeep ride in the Negev or with an archeological dig! Each year millions of visitors travel to Israel, a small country on the Mediterranean Sea that is home to the world’s three major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Taking a vacation to Israel with your family creates memories that last a lifetime. Grow closer together and to the land of Israel and its heritage. The Israel Ministry of Tourism website says “The best news about traveling to Israel with your kids is that because most Israelis go on vacation with the whole family, Israel is very child-friendly. And if you are planning to visit Israel during summer or winter vacations and especially during the interim days of Passover and Sukkot, you’ll find dozens of Israel Nature and Parks Authority sites as well as museums to be treasure-troves of fun and learning – from costumed guides to hands-on workshops in pottery, mosaic-making, bread-making and other crafts.”

Whether your vacation is with your immediate family unit or multi-generational travel, Israel caters to all. See history unfold before your eyes when visiting the ancient sites from the Bible and Torah, trace your family’s history, or simply enjoy the beautiful weather and delicious Israeli cuisine.

In Eilat, families can swim with the dolphins and scuba dive in the Red Sea. Rafting and kayaking is a great way to enjoy the Jordan River and view the countryside of Israel! Embark on a climb to the top of the ancient fortress, Massada, built by King Herod in 30 BCE to witness the sunrise over the Dead Sea. Float in the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth or ride a camel and camp out in a Bedouin tent in the Negev. There are beautiful hiking and biking trails, and snow skiing on Mount Hermon! Additionally, there are many hotels that cater to children, especially in the resort towns of Eilat and Tiberias, which offer a “kid’s club”. Israel has it all, from the snow top mountain, to the sandy beaches of Tel Aviv and to the ancient sites in Jerusalem!
