Alongside its fascinating religious history, Israel packs in cosmopolitan cities, rolling hills, multi-coloured canyons and year-round sunny beaches.

With holy sites and sacred stories oozing from its ancient landscapes, most travellers flock to Israel to walk through the pages of history. But with a coastline bordering the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee, plus liberal and vibrant cities, there’s more to this beautiful land than first meets the eye. Here, you can float in the salty waters of the Dead Sea, walk through multi-coloured wave-like walls at Red Canyon, and party by the Med in Tel Aviv – all within a country around the size of Wales.
