Adventure in Israel - Desert Cave Fire

Experience the practice that kept early man alive. The cave fire!

“The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.”  -  Henry David Thoreau

Take a few steps away from society, away from the noise and artificial lights. 

A 15-minute hike from the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel, this adventure will take you back in time and you will feel what early desert settlers experienced on a daily basis. This will be a traditional bonfire in a cave in the middle of the historic Judean desert.

With headlamps on our heads, we’ll venture off to the desert wilderness. Once we reach the cave, we’ll start setting up the fireplace. As the night falls, we will start our fire!

Fire, jokes, stories of the desert, the whole nine yards.There will be plenty of time to stargaze on a clear night and observe the otherworldly landscape by the glow of the moon. If we are lucky we will be serenaded by wolf calls in the distance.

After a few hours, put out our fire and turn our flashlights on… It’s time to head back to the hostel. The guide will lead us through the canyon safely back to the city of Arad.
