Going on an Israel vacation is ideal whole year round depending on the kind of activity or festivity you are looking for. Check out some of the Israel vacation ideas below.

Summer Israel Vacation

Summer in Israel starts from March to October of the year. An Israel vacation during summer would be a good time to visit its bodies of water, except for the Dead Sea since it would be too hot to bathe in there given that it is located on the Negev Desert. There are two popular beach destinations in Israel, the beachfront in Tel Aviv and in Eilat, both littered with resorts and hotels. The Sea of Galilee is also a popular destination during summer which is also a biblical site. Kayaking and rafting are a popular activity at the Sea of Galilee. Climbing Mount Hermon for a hike on its nature reserves is also a cool vacation idea during Israel’s summer wherein temperatures average around 84°F (29°C).

Winter Israel Vacation

Winter in Israel starts in late October up to March. Touring around Israel during winter is even more fun and festive as the temperature drops to a more comfortable level wherein hiking along the Israel National Trail across the Jerusalem, Sea of Galilee and Negev Desert is ideal. Waters in the Jordan River are cold at around 15 to 17°C during the winter season which is also open for baptisms. One unique destination for an Israel vacation during the winter would be the ski resorts at Mount Hermon. During winter season, the mountain would be covered with snow making it ideal for skiing and snowboarding.

Joining festivities when visiting Israel is also a popular vacation ideal. Hanukkah is one of the most festive and widely celebrated holidays in Israel that usually runs in December. Plan your Israel vacation with us, contact us today to get assistance for a memorable trip and vacation in Israel!
