Israel Trail 11th Segment: Jordan River to Ramat Serin
Sunday, January 8th: Join us on our epic journey with the 11th segment of the Israel Trail, from the Jordan River to Ramat Serin
On this challenging 15 kilometer hike, we’ll begin below sea level with a walk along the Jordan River. After a cup of coffee, we’ll start the gradual ascent in the sunshine along the Yavne’el Stream to the top of Ramat Serin, towards gorgeous views. This serious climb will be the most challenging part of the day. Along the way, we’ll see agricultural fields, springs, and the most beautiful lookout over the Jordan Valley. After a visit to shady Ein Ulam, the day will end with a glass of wine and some snacks to celebrate our completion of the 11th segment of the Israel Trail!
Minibus transportation available from Savidor Station (price determined based on # of participants, 110-140 NIS). This is a challenging hike for fit hikers only. This is a popular hike, so please reserve your spot early!

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.
