DETAILS

See how Israel has turned the desert into an oasis on our flagship travel program. This transformative experience starts and ends 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.

Cross these trip highlights off your bucket list:

  • Climb Masada for a breathtaking view of the sunrise, stargaze and ride a camel in the desert, and slide down massive sand dunes
  • Surf on the Mediterranean, float effortlessly in the Dead Sea, and raft down the Jordan River
  • Try authentic Israeli foods like falafel, shawarma, and hummus
NOTE: This Israel Journey experience is for seniors. Each bus will only have teens who are currently in 12th grade. If you’re currently in grades 9–11, click here for the trip details applicable to you.
