Finishing the ride on the coastline, we will be picked up by a special cruising ship to the hotel entrance in the city of Tiberius.

You are in for the best history lesson you've ever had. After the ride, we will drive towards the capital city, the infamous "golden made city" of Jerusalem.

Zofim to the east of Jerusalem, to enjoy all its glory, while it bathes in the morning sunlight. We will then head down towards the lowest place on earth, the geological marvel, the Sea of Galilee. A truly in captivating ride, in the heart of the Syrian Afrikan Crack, while running your tires through the scare that was created in the surface of the earth millions of years ago. At the end of the ride you will have time to enjoy some the Dead Sea's remarkable natural water and minerals.
Day 5 – Enjoying the natural beauty of the shiny white salty coasts of the Dead Sea, we will begin our ride upwards, leaving the lowest place on earth. This day contains several challenges and is suitable to provide all levels of riding with some challenging ascents. The Akrabim Ascent and Yeruham ascent will provide those who wish to test their legs with the ultimate test, in a dessert type environment. A true challenge, Israeli style.
Day 6 – The dessert cruise. The final ride for the tour will provide you the true biblical genesis experience. The awesome power of the dessert white vast is a mind altering experience. Begin by descending into one of the most peculiar geological phenomena in the world, Machtesh Ramon (Ramon Crater), and crossing it from one edge to the next, and continuing through the barren hills of the Negev. The open road will run underneath your tires, and will smoothly bring you to the end point of your journey in the city of Eilat, Israel’s number one tourism city.
