Trip Type:Hiking and Wine

TRIP OVERVIEW

Come hike and drink wine with Finjan in the heart of ancient Judea. The Judean Foothills are rich in important, biblical archeological sites, sprawling vineyards and beautiful valleys where the views from hill to hill bring you back in time to the days of David and Goliath, the ancient Israelites and the Philistines.

For thousands of years, the Judean Foothills and surrounding valleys have witnessed a captivating history of regional conquerors, trade across the Levant between the great empires and the growth of a booming viticulture industry (wine production).

We will hike from some of the most recognizable, biblical archeological sites in the area including Tel Azeka and Khirbet Qeyafa and finish the day at a local, boutique winery whose wines can only be found at the source!

By the end of the day, we will have a clearer picture of how the history of the holy land was shaped through through these rolling hills and wide, fertile and lush valleys.

The hike will be a light, intermediate-level trek of about 10KM and suitable for anyone with a bit of hiking experience. It’s the perfect way to get some exercise with some delicious wine before the weekend begins! We will have pickups en route from Tel Aviv via Rehovot and around Beit Shemesh (for those coming from Jerusalem).
