Israel Trail 14th Segment: Mount Tavor Lookout to Tsipori National Park
Sunday, February 26th: Join Hiking the Holyland and expert guide Ben Zaltzman as we continue on our epic journey along the Israel Trail! This 14 kilometer segment from Mount Devora to the entrance of Tsipori National Park is going to be incredible.
The day begins from a beautiful lookout, where we will enjoy a cup of coffee. Then, we’ll begin our ascent up Mount Devora, a beautiful mountaintop in the Galilee. After completing the ascent, the trail continues through the villages of Nazareth and Moshad, where we will hear about the fascinating history of the region and learn about what these places look like in modern times. The last stretch of our journey will take us to Tsipori National Park, where we’ll celebrate the completion of the 14th segment with wine and snacks!
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.
