Being that Adventure Israel's roots are in USA adventure travel, we are stoked to announce our 2016 USA Extreme Road
Trip. This is the only USA adventure program that will be running its entire itinerary with an IDF commander!
This program will offer three weeks of non-stop adventuring designed to take natural leaders and develop the tools they need to maximize their goals and become
passionate ambassadors for Israel.
With a heavy focus on deep personal growth, Israel hasbara, and commited teamwork, our adventure staff will build off of over twenty years of experience and showcase
some of the very best adventure sites from New York to Maine. While getting a true taste of the life of an Israeli soldier, our participants will learn and implement IDF skills and
Our team will be led by Ariel Fishman, founder of Adventure Israel, together with **Natan Rannels who was an IDF commander for the Givati sniper unit, and served
in Gaza during the past war.
We will be working with a maximium of ten hand-picked participants. By keeping our group small, we will provide unbeatable attention to
detail, intense outdoor challenges, and a focus on results-based leadership.
This is designed for the motivated and adventure-focused teen who is looking for an experience that will be at once action-packed and challenging yet also
meaningful and inspirational.
This non-coed program will be strictly Shomer Shabbat and Kashrut.
Ages 16-19 only.
Some of the highlights include:
Rock Climbing and Rappelling in the White Mountains
Multi-day paddling in the Adirondacks
Intense survival training and backpacking in the Catskills
Peak-bagging in the Presidential Range of New Hampshire
IDF-style training, night-time navigation, Krav Maga, and team-building challenges
Mountain biking in the Gunks
Baxter Mountain in Maine via the famous Knife-edge Ridge
This program is being run through Ramote Expeditions, LLC which was founded in 2001 by Adventure Israel's founder Ariel Fishman.
** Natan's availability for this year's program is subject to the security situation in Israel at the start of the summer. In the event of any staff changes, all
participants will be notified immediately. Adventure Israel has multiple post-army commanders available for this position if necessary.
