There’s no need to go far to enjoy the desert… when adventure is just around the corner!
No cars

This adventure will take you the the beautiful Kidod canyon, just outside the city of Arad and under the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel! Amazing views, caves, a beautiful hiking trail and a cliff for rappelling. Desert at its best.

We will depart from the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel and hike towards the canyon. After some walking among the streets of Arad, we’ll reach the desert wilderness. We will reach a cliff and set up a rappelling spot, and make a small break to enjoy a rappelling activity in this awesome canyon. Coffee, cookies, rappelling, the whole nine yards.

After the activity we’ll wrap up and continue down to the canyon, where we’ll cross the caves and reach the awesome view points overlooking the Dead Sea and the beautiful Judean desert. We’ll finish the trail in Arad’s abandoned hotel, where we’ll enjoy a warm cup of desert herbal tea made together from natural herbs.

To wrap up, we’ll make our way back to the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel through the Moav boardwalk in a relaxed “end of day” kinda walk, enjoying the great desert views all the way back to the hostel.

This tour is a budget-friendly, simple and fun. You’re more than welcome to join us once a week to discover the desert right around the corner, with the best companions in the middle east!
