• Avdat and Akev desert canyons: A relatively tough hike in the Negev Desert. Starting in the ancient Nabatean town of Avdat, walking to the upper Akev spring and the lower Akev spring, with its surprising ice-cold pool. Camping in the Tzin valley, and walking in the second day on the Avdat Plateau, with beautiful views from the Tzin Cliffs. Concluding in the wildlife-rich Avdat Canyon.
