Negev & Mitzpe Ramon Holidays

Ramon Crater

Introduction to Israels Negev region

The Negev desert accounts for most of Southern Israel and covers half of Israel’s total land area. This vast and arid region contains a surprising wealth of sights - historical, cultural and natural, and ideally should be included on the holiday itinerary of anyone wanting to experience the real Israel.

Nabateans, Byzantines, Ottomans, Canaanites and many more have inhabited the Negev throughout history, and the remnants of these societies are integral to the desert’s unique identity. In ancient times the famed Spice Road passed through the Negev; today tourists travel from afar to discover the region’s hidden gems.

One of the most dramatic and impressive sights in the Negev is the Ramon Crater. The largest of the three craters found in the Negev, the Ramon Crater is 40k long and was created millions of years ago by ancient rivers changing course after the formation of the Arava Rift Valley. Located in the Ramon Nature Reserve and surrounded by the Negev Mountains, Mitzpe Ramon is the only settlement in the area and is perched on the very edge of the crater. It’s here that the Beresheet Hotel, one of the most unique hotels in our programme, is located.
