Nocturnal Animals of Israel: Journey at Night – 28/7/22

Thursday, July 28th: Get to know the nocturnal animals of the Carmel Forest, on this incredible journey into the wild with Hiking the Holyland and expert guide, Ben Zaltzman.

Most of us hike during the daytime, with full sunlight to keep us in our comfort zone.  On this journey, we’ll be trying something new by hiking in the dark, using all of our senses to explore our surroundings.

We’ll start the evening by watching a beautiful sunset in the Carmel Mountains.  Then, once night falls, we’ll get to discover the sights and sounds of the forest that we never knew existed, as we peer up and down at the night animals hiding in plain sight.  As we walk, we’ll learn about glowing scorpions, chameleons, porcupines, ….. and more.  Midway through our  adventure, we’ll stop for a break with some summer-season refreshments and a fascinating explanation of the nightlife of nature.

Bring a flashlight, good walking shoes, and a great attitude.  This easy hike in the Carmel will be an entirely different kind of outdoor adventure.

Special low summer price!!! Big kids and teens are welcome!

    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.
    Education:
    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. I was an experienced hiker, prior to my Aliya, in US including Arctic Alaska, New Hampshire, and Maine. I have not hiked here in Israel.
    I live in Jerusalem–NO car.
    How do I get to the starting point of this hike? Is there any car-pool from Jerusalem?
    Where to stay overnight?
