Israel National Trail
One of National Geographic s 20 most epic trails, the Israel National Trail crosses the entire country of Israel, clocking in at about 580 to 620 miles. Experienced backpackers generally spend about 45 to 60 days trekking from Israel s northern border with Lebanon to the Red Sea, through major cities like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and through the Israeli desert. The hike passes through mountains, valleys, forests, craters and orchards, varying from very easy to vary difficult, and crosses biblical sites and historic places like Nazareth, as well as archeological sites.
