Negev

Have you ever dreamed of camping out in the Israeli desert under the stars? Well, this is your chance. Hop down to Southern Israel for a traditional overnight Bedouin hospitality experiences. These villages and communities provide fascinating insight into the history and lifestyles of Bedouins in Israel, and most overnights include a safe and warm tent, home cooked meals, storytelling, bonfires, and more. Pro tip: Camels have been used by the Bedouin tribes and their predecessors for thousands of years as a mode of transport across the desert, and today, most of the Bedouin villages in Israel offer camel riding as an activity. While you can honor the tradition and history, we suggest that you admire the camels from the ground and avoid using them for entertainment.

Carmey Avdat Farm in the Israeli desert is exactly where you need to be, come sunset. Visit this family-run winery and pick your favorite bottle. They’ll happily arrange a bottle for you and lend you some wine glasses then send you off to the lookout point above the vineyards. On a clear evening you’ll be able to see the Mountains of Edom in Jordan. After the sun has said goodnight, retire to your cabin, the beit kerem located on the property. Your stay will come with a free wine tasting and breakfast. The cabin has its own pool made of natural rock formations. The farm trails on the property will keep you busy during non wine tasting hours.
