Extreme-sports nation

Great weather and awesome natural surroundings – plus Israelis’ penchant for an adrenaline high – make for an extreme sports mecca.

Come bouldering with ISRAEL21c! It’s an extreme form of rock climbing without ropes – just one of many extreme sports you’ll see in this video on a wilder side of Israel.

Try scuba diving in the Dead Sea, mountain biking at Masada, kitesurfing, stand-up paddle boarding and skydiving. Israel has it all.

“We’re definitely a nation looking for adventure and we find it,” says Yuval Hamburg of Performance Rock Gym.
