Itinerary

 

DAY 1: The Ride to "Everest", the top of the Ramon Crater rim

 

Day 1 of our ride takes us to astonishing viewpoints of the "volcanic" area of the crater and the high Negev Mountains region. We’ll also discover wells that were built 3000 years ago, and enjoy some truly amazing riding on the Tzin stream plateaus.

Day 2 : "Down the Rim " day

Day 2 of our ride will take us down into the crater along the Ramon stream route. At sunset we'll climb the crater's rim, some of it by foot, and arrive back at the Alpaca farm.

Day 3: The Scenic Eastern Crater

Day 3 sees some serious riding fun! We’ll start the day by driving the horses to the eastern side of the crater, before heading out to some of the most well-known scenic paths in Israel. We will be climbing Gvanim Mountain, then riding through the Gvanim stream, Ein Saharonim, Maale Dkalim, the Ardon stream, the Spice Route and the Ramon Colors path.
