Explore Our Trips

Our most popular trip and most balanced itinerary. From the sun-soaked waters of the Mediterranean, to the cosmopolitan heart of Tel Aviv, under the brilliant sky of the Negev desert, and through the cobblestone alleys of Jerusalem, on Israel Quest you’ll witness an Israel alive with history, culture, and beauty.


Explore the breathtaking terrain of Israel the way it was meant to be experienced – on your feet and on the go. Israel by Foot is a more active experience that balances memorable hikes, a night of camping in the Negev desert wilderness, the bustling action of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and all the highlights you expect.


Israel by Bike is our on-the-saddle journey through the Land of Milk and Honey. If you’re the kind of person who loves to explore new places on two wheels, then we invite you to hike, bike, raft, float, and swim your way across this most ancient land, while still covering all the highlights you expect.


Campus Trips help grow your undergrad social network while expanding your horizons abroad. Travel with friends (or soon-to-be-friends) from your school and immerse yourself in the fascinating sights, sounds, flavors, and feelings that you can only get on a Birthright Israel experience.


Take your local connections global by experiencing the wonder of Israel with peers from your community (ages 22-26). From sunrise over Masada to sunset on the beaches of Tel Aviv, on a Community Trip you’ll share memories and perspectives with people you’ll stay connected with back home.


Tap into your desert roots on this extended Israel by Foot journey. On Desert Wilderness, you’ll spend four bonus days exploring the vast Negev Desert. Learn how to survive in the wilderness, hike to a lush hidden desert oasis, and experience Israel’s world-leading approach to desert agriculture and water conservation. A $250 fee applies. Winter season only


Amplify our Israel by Foot experience on this special 14-day journey. The capstone of this trip is a 3-day Sea-to-Sea Trek from the shores of the Mediterranean to the mythical Sea of Galilee. You’ll camp under the stars and explore ancient ruins, hidden springs, and picturesque Galilee villages along the way. A $250 fee applies. Summer season only


Extend your travels with four bonus days living and giving of yourself in trendy Tel Aviv – Israel’s cultural capital on the Mediterranean shores. On Service Learning in Tel Aviv, you’ll discover the city’s rich social fabric, and make a difference in the lives of the people who call Tel Aviv home. A $250 fee applies.


Travel on Pride with Israel Outdoors for an experience specially designed for LGBTQ and allies. Experience the very best of this remarkable land while gaining unique insights into Israel’s diverse and thriving gay community. And the summer version of this trip is scheduled to coincide with Tel Aviv Pride 2017!


This one-of-a-kind journey connects medical/nursing students and current healthcare practitioners with their peers in Israel for a unique professional perspective.
