Welcome to The Arava

The Arava has a great deal to offer outdoor enthusiasts. For desert hiking, Timna Park is the best place to go. A popular 33km bike trail runs along a wadi between Tzofar and Paran (Faran) – it forms part of the Israel National Bike Trail.

The Arava is part of the Great Rift Valley (Syrian-African Rift), which runs for some 6000km from Lebanon's Bekaa Valley to central Mozambique. To the east is the majestic, multi-hued Jordanian mountain range known in Israel as the Edom Mountains.
