Full Moon Hike at Park Adulam
Have you ever hiked by the light of the full moon?
Join Hiking the Holyland and expert guide Ben Zaltzman on Thursday, December 16th on a full moon hike at Park Adulam. We’ll begin after sunset at 6:30 PM, hiking a 3.5 kilometer loop trail through one of the most beautiful reserves in the Jerusalem Lowlands!
This hike will take us through lush greenery, and an ancient Second Temple city! Experience the sounds of nature at night as we walk on this moderate trail through a quiet woodland. We’ll stop for a bonfire with hot soup and tea made from herbs picked on the way. (Bring along a sandwich and call it dinner!)
Then, we’ll hear about the fascinating history of Burgin Ruins, an ancient city turned hideout for Jewish Rebels. The walls and structures of this crumbling town looks incredible by the light of the full moon.
This is a moderate trail, for hikers of many skill levels. We will begin at 6:30 PM and finish at around 10:00 PM. Sign up early as spaces are limited! Contact us for special pricing for couples!
In the event of rain, this hike will be cancelled and your admission fee will be refunded.
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.
