Vacation at the Negev Highlands!

Welcome to the Negev Highlands – Israel's desert tourism center.

The Negev Highlands area offers a tremendous abundance of breathtaking, pristine landscapes, and its crown jewel is the Land of the Makhteshim – a region encompassing five of the world's seven erosion craters, or Maktheshim – a unique and fascinating geologic phenomenon. Here you will encounter nature in all its full glory: a fascinating variety of wildlife and rare desert vegetation in Israel's largest nature reserves.

The Negev Highlands area offers a bounty of hiking trails, cycling paths and 4X4 roads. Around the Negev Mountain, you will find a variety of different boutique tourist services: galleries, restaurants, health centers, spas, unique B&Bs and more.

These come in addition to the dozens of tourist attractions the region has to offer such as the Spice Routes, desert springs, Mt. Karkom, the Nabatean cities and many other archeological sites and interesting and fun heritage sites as well as plenty of farms, vineyards and wineries, goat dairy farms and herds of sheep.

The unique climate is perfect for travelling all year round. The dry, clear desert climate and few clouds also make this area ideal for stargazing and astronomical tours.

We are looking forward to host you in the best desert tradition, and wish you a wonderful vacation!
