Israel is a unique adventure and sports destination where travelers can rappel in one of the world's oldest natural craters, Mitspe Ramon, go horseback riding through the lush Golan Heights; play a round of golf at the Peter Dye-designed course in Caesarea; hike the route of Jesus along the Galilee's 40-mile Gospel Trail; snorkel and go scuba diving in the Red Sea and surf and swim in the Mediterranean.

 And for bicycle enthusiasts, the Israel Trail offers countrywide biking routes, from the Golan Heights in the north through the Negev Desert to the seaside city of Eilat.
