Visitors can truly experience the variety of natural phenomena that characterize the Land of Israel, those which have always been, and continue to be a critical element in the legacy of the Jewish people. Neot Kedumim provides all of this to its visitors through guided tours and a range of activities for students and adults from around Israel and all across the world.
