It may be smaller in size than Lake Michigan, but Israel is unforgettable. From Eilat and the Red Sea in the country’s south, to the awe-inspiring Negev desert, and on to the beaches of the Mediterranean, the verdant hills of the Galilee, and to both ancient and modern cities, this is a country bursting with life and diversity.

To honor the country’s 68th Independence Day, we take you on a breathtaking tour across one of the most fascinating nations in the world. Relax and enjoy.
