Jeep tours, abseiling and activities in Mitzpe Ramon and Southern Israel
The Negev Desert, covering approximately sixty percents of Israel's area, is one of the most beautiful regions of the world, offering a breathtaking mix of stunning nature and diverse desert landscapes. Makhtesh Ramon (Ramon Crater) is one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in Israel and in the entire world. This area offers many routes, both short and long, that present us with the desert's rare beauty. The view from the crater's rim in Mitzpe Ramon and a visit to the town's various attraction offer a wonderful holiday, whether just one weekend or a longer stay.
Jeep tours in Makhtesh Ramon are your ticket into the many attractions of the Negev Mount region. Makhtesh Ramon is a diverse geological phenomenon – it is 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) wide and over 40 kilometers (25 miles) long, and is the largest of the Negev's makhteshim –the region's unique erosion craters or cirques. It is the largest makhtesh in the world, its ancient rocks shedding a light on the earth's early history, dating back to geological eras of more than 250 million years ago.
The purpose of our jeep tours is to allow each traveler to discover the desert's secrets and experience up-close the rare beauty of this unknown piece of land and to pass on our love of this special region. Makhtesh Ramon is a unique geological formation and the best way to experience its striking landscapes is a jeep tour.
All of our guides are Mitzpe Ramon residents who eat, drink and breathe the desert all year round.
See you in the desert,
Ramon Desert Tours's Team.
