ExtremeCalling all outdoor lovers! Interested in discovering Israel by hiking it, climbing it and crawling through it?  Don’t mind getting your hands dirty?  Then this is the trip for you! The Extreme Outdoor Adventure program will take the core components of the CIE original program and add an extreme twist.  On top of touring the mystical city of Tzfat, spending Shabbat in Jerusalem and meeting some incredible Israeli soldiers, you will hike through the river valleys of the Western Galilee, climb the volcanic rock of the Golan Heights, explore ancient tunnels in the Judean Hills and orienteer through the Negev desert after spending a night under the stars.  This trip is all about getting off the bus, out of the city and discovering the land by feeling it under your feet. This is a very physically demanding trip. Applicants will be subject to further questioning upon application.
