DETAILS

See how Israel has turned the desert into an oasis on our flagship travel program, Israel Journey. This transformative experience starts in the Old City of Jerusalem, where you’ll explore thousands of years of Jewish history. In between, you’ll see the natural beauty of the land in the northern Galilee region, soak up the sunshine in the southern Negev desert, and feel the vibrant energy of urban Tel Aviv as you forge a personal connection with the Jewish homeland.

Then, teens will extend their adventure by flying into the United Arab Emirates for an additional four days of exploration. We’re calling it the Abraham Accords Extension! Pretty neat, right?

Cross these trip highlights off your UAE bucket list:

  • Watch the Dubai Dancing Water Fountains, a choreographed water show with music and lights that will dazzle and captivate you
  • Enjoy a moment of pure bliss as you take in the stunning view of the Persian Gulf from Atlantis The Palm, a luxury hotel sitting on the edge of the world-famous Palm Island
  • Go on a shopping spree at Dubai Mall, the most visited retail and lifestyle destination in the world situated in the heart of Downtown Dubai
NOTE: The Abraham Accords Extension is only available with our Israel Journey June 27 program (traveling from June 27–July 18, 2023). This trip is not available with any other Israel Journey departure dates.
