Less than an hours drive from Jerusalem you have access to amazing adventure options from hiking and rappelling to rock climbing and caving.
We reccomend that you combine this adventure with our famous primitive pita making workshop which is a perfect way to have lunch in the hills. We create fire using
survival techniques (bow and drill or flint and steel) amd our hands get to work on the dough to bake tasty and fresh Bedouin-style pitas, grilled vegetables, and Israeli dips.
Locations near Jerusalem include Shilat Cliffs, Zanoach Cliffs, Bar Kochba Tunnels, Judean Hills Bell Caves, and more.
See Below for a sample description of one of these sites:
Location: Shilat Cliffs in the Judean Mountains
Activities: Rappelling and Rock Climbing. Option for Team Building Games, BBQ, Pita-making.

Family friendly adventure, children 6 and older can rappel.
Our day starts at a meeting place in the Ben Shemen forest which is less than an hour from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
From our cars there is a short walk to a cliff-top viewpoint of the Israeli village of Chashmonaim, named for the famous empire that was founded by the Macabees.
After learning about the region and a brief safety introduction to rappelling/abseiling we set up our ropes on the 30 meter cliff face (this can be adjusted to a smaller height for groups unsure of
their abilities) and begin with the action-packed rappelling.
For those who are scared, we are proud to say that our guides are devoted to helping you get past the fear and learn to enjoy the challenge and beauty of
rappelling. Once we are wrapped up with the rappelling, we head over to a nearby picnic area beneath a canopy of pine trees to set up our fire-pit and lunch preparation. This lunch is truly something
to remember as we do the process from scratch, from the kneading of the dough to using only friction to light our fire, we discover the primitive skills in making a tasty a nutritious array of foods
including fresh baked pitas, grilled eggplant, and roasted garlic accompanied by a selection of dips and salads and of course Turkish coffee for the adults and marshmallows over the fire for the
After our ethnic lunch we head back to the cliff for a thrilling taste of rock climbing. Rock climbing challenges the mind as much as the body and with some simple
climbing technique and determination, we get to climb up that 30 meter face that we only a short wile earlier scaled down. This day is truly packed-solid with action and fun and can be catered to
meet the requests of a wide array of abilities and intensity.
