Millions of pilgrims visited the holy places of the ‘Promised Land’ and millions of sun-worshippers lay their head to rest in the warm sand of the Israeli Riviera, where the sun shines the whole year through.
This young country, with a past as old as human civilization, has been the home country for the Jews for 54 years now. Firmly rooted in the ‘Law of Return’ every Jew has a right to settle in Israel. More than 2,5 million exiles from all over the world returned and made Israel into a melting pot of all kinds of cultures. But besides history, culture and sun, the diversity of the landscape - from mountains to fertile valleys to desert - offers many adventurers an unforgettable vacation.
