Israel Trail 11th Segment: Ovadia National Park to Kish Village


Sunday, January 8th: Join us on our epic journey with the 11th segment of the Israel Trail, from Ovadia National Park to Kish Village.

On this challenging 14 kilometer hike, we’ll begin below sea level at Ovadia National Park. After a cup of coffee, we’ll start the gradual ascent on a wide path to the top of Ramat Serin, towards a gorgeous lookout. This serious climb will be the most challenging part of the day. After soaking up the views at the top, we’ll begin our downhill journey towards Kfar Kish and Mount Tavor, which begins to blossom with beautiful flowers during the winter months. 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!

10% discount available if you pay for 4 Israel Trail hikes at once!

    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.
