Tips

The Israel National Trail, (Hebrew: שביל ישראל‎, Shvil Yisra'el) is a hiking path that was inaugurated in 1995. The trail crosses the entire country of Israel. Its northern end is at Dan, near the Lebanese border in the far north of the country, and it extends to Eilat at the southernmost tip of Israel on the Red Sea, a length of 1,015 km (631 mi). The trail is marked with three stripes: white, blue, and orange, signifying the white snow of the Hermon mountain, the blue of the Mediterranean sea, and the orange of the desert sand. The trail takes an average of 45-60 days to complete.

This trail takes time! Budget around a month or two for the whole trail just to be safe. Don't forget to pack a bathing suit!

It's an amazing trail. You pass through so many different types of terrain and areas. You go from desert to beach, city to hills, forests to mountains. It's incredibly well-marked and the upkeep is excellent. Trail angels can provide beds to sleep if you wash some dishes, and people are very friendly on the trail. The highlights are definitely Makhtesh Ramon and the Sea of Galilee. It will take you time. Budget around a month or two just to be safe. Don't forget to pack a bathing suit!
