Hiking Adventure in the Carmel Mountains

Join Hiking the Holyland Sunday, April 25th on an adventure in the Carmel Mountains!  This moderate hike is for men and women of all ages. We’ll be going on an 6.75 kilometer circular trek in the Carmel Mountains, through Nahal Galim, Nahal Kelakh, and Little Switzerland.

Discover hidden trails and unbelievable beauty with a professional guide as your leader.  Enjoy some time in the quiet of Israel’s great outdoors and meet fellow explorers.  Explore a jungle-like valley, climb over rocks and oversized tree roots, enjoy the seasonal flowers and take in the views from the green Carmel region out to the Mediterranean Sea. Experienced hiking guide Ben Zaltzman will be joining us on this journey. I can’t wait to see you all there!

Space is limited, so register early!
The path is not flat – there will be some uphill and downhill climbing involved!
We reserve the right to cancel the hike at any time in exchange for a full refund of any fees paid.

    My name is Ben Zaltzman, I’m a tour guide and a hiker in Israel who leads people on trails around the country. 
    I fell in love with nature at a young age.
    While exploring the wide open spaces of nature, I came to know that it was the place where I belong.
    A question I ask during our journeys is, “What happens to me in nature?”
    I found secret hiking trails, discovered magical corners in the country, and have been guiding others through my experiences.
    The trips I lead are about nature connection, the power of being in nature, and the changing environment.
    I’m an expert at long-distance hikes. I hiked for 6 month along the Pacific Crest Trail in the US, and have gone on lots of other journeys in Israel and abroad.
    Tour guiding course of the ministry of tourism, birdwatching course (Israeli SPN), educational tours (ministry of education), Storytelling, hunter-gatherers life skills, group dynamics leader, tour educator (on Birthright), Nature cure & connection journey.

  1. How do you get there before the 10 AM starting time, from Jerusalem?
    I have NO car.
    Any departure time from home prior to 7:30 is too early.

    1. I’m not sure it’s possible to get to the trailhead on time from Jerusalem via public transportation without leaving before 7:30. Perhaps you could get a ride with someone else coming from your area?

  2. hi! I LOVE your site! one thing: I think that you should leave a waze link to every hike!!
