Israel Trail 4th Segment: Nahal Dishon and Nahal Tzivon
Sunday, May 22nd: Our journey along the Israel Trail continues. Join Hiking the Holyland and expert guide Ben Zaltzman on this incredible adventure! We’ll be beginning the day where we left off last time, at Nahal Dishon. After a hot cup of coffee, we will continue along Upper Dishon Stream, past many different types of terrain.
Our day will begin with a gentle uphill walk along the water for 7 kilometers, with the possibility of a few stream crossings (bring water shoes!). Then, we will progress uphill along a narrow pathway to Tzivon Stream and Baram Forest, one of the Galilee’s most beautiful woodlands. This forest is a well preserved example of historical forests in Israel, green and lush, filled with oak trees and mushrooms in the right season.
The last part of the day is a 1 kilometer ascent out of Nahal Tzivon and towards the endpoint of segment four.
We’ll celebrate the completion of the 4th segment of the Israel Trail with a glass of wine and some light snacks to celebrate the completion of our journey.
Minibus transportation will be available from Savidor Station in Tel Aviv (at an extra cost of 110-130 per person, depending on the number of passengers). Spaces are limited, so please sign up early. This is an extremely popular hike!
We reserve the right to cancel at any time for a full refund. This 14 kilometer challenging hike is for hikers in good physical condition!
You can choose to book just one hike, or book three Israel Trail hikes at once (does not have to be in order) for a 10 % discount and a free Hiking the Holyland t-shirt!
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.
