Israel has it all - in not so much space

Although Israel is only half the size of Denmark, there is an incredible amount to experience. Here you will find everything from lively big cities to fascinating natural areas, and it can be combined quite easily.

For example, you can travel from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea.

Although Israel is not a large country, it is a good idea to allow extra time for the visit.

Firstly, there are a lot of unique experiences, and then you also have to set aside some time for transport. Many people live there, and in certain periods it is also very popular to visit the country. This applies especially to religious holidays; Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Israel - Jerusalem - travel

An extended weekend: 4 days in Israel

You fly safely into the airport in Tel Aviv, Ben Gurion International Airport. It is clearly the largest airport and the gateway to the two cities we recommend you spend your time in: Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

start i Jerusalem, which is the classic city of Israel, and it is here that you will find the great historical sights. Choose a place to live where you can walk to most things, so you can get the city under your skin. Remember to take a guided tour so you get history – and stories – of what you see, because this city has seen most of it.

After two nights here, you take the train for another half hour Tel Aviv. It is Jerusalem's handsome little brother, where there is life, beach and food experiences ad libitum. Here you can get an impression of the city with two overnight stays, where you can, for example, stay by the city beach along Middelhavet, if you are into beach life.

The Dead Sea The Red Sea Israel travels

A week in Israel: The Red Sea or the Dead Sea

Once you've experienced the two cultural cities, it's time to get out into nature, and why not head south to Eilat. The city lies at the very bottom of the Gulf of Aqaba, which is connected to the Red Sea itself. Eilat is a neighboring city to Aqaba Jordan, which is quite close to Eilat. There are airports in both cities, which, however, are primarily used by charter and domestic flights.

In Eilat there is warmth, sun and beach life all year round and fantastic nature parks outside such as Timna and Red Canyon in the Negev desert.

If you want to dip, but don't want to travel the 300 kilometers down to Eilat, you can also go to the Dead Sea, which is somewhat closer to Jerusalem. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth's surface, 431 meters below havets surface, and here the water is so salty that you can float on it.

10 days in Israel: Head north

After a few days in the cities and by the water, it is obvious to head north. Haifa, Akko and Nazareth are some of the pearls in the north about 150 kilometers from Jerusalem.

In this area you will find, among other things, the Bahai Gardens and the 'Jesus route', which is a walking route in the footsteps of Jesus. Inland, there are plenty of opportunities for other forms of active holiday such as cycling holidays and ATV safaris in the beautiful countryside.

Akko is also known by its old name of Acre, and here there is plenty of history and experiences, because the city goes all the way back to 3000 years before Christ.

Off the beaten track: The hidden gems

If you've already been to the cities, or if you have more time, there are a number of hidden gems. You can look at Magdala, Chorazin, Gamla, Sebastia National Park and Mount Ebal, which are all places that are not overrun and where you get closer to the locals and the culture.

There are also good opportunities to visit a kibbutz, a farm or a winery, e.g. Tura Winery and Givot Olam.

Israel is to that extent a foodie destination with tons of gastronomic possibilities, so it is obvious to try it out throughout the country, regardless of whether you travel from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea, or if you choose another route.
