IDF Lebanon Border Jeep Tour

IDF Lebanon Border Jeep Tour

This tour takes you along the Lebanese border in the eastern Galilee. This is a tour not found in any visitors guide or tour book of Israel! This is a very special tour where your guide is a local resident with many personal stories to share of life along the border of Lebanon and Israel.

This is a journey behind the scenes, a look at life on the Lebanese border, “living an ordinary life under threat.”. You also will have the unique and rare opportunity to meet with IDF combat soldiers, who are guarding the nearby Lebanese border.  We will spend time getting to know the combat soldiers and watch them in action up close and personal. Depending on the circumstances, we will see some combat vehicles, such as tanks, D9 (huge army bulldozer), hummers and ATMOS vehicles. Sometimes we could get invited by the soldiers to climb on!

This unique and amazing tour will give you a better understanding of the conflict, the lives of the soldiers protecting our land, and everyday life at the border from an up close and personal perspective.

While riding you will experience exhilarating steep ascents and descents through the mountains. Along the way we will drive through breath-taking panoramic views of the Golan Heights, Hula Valley, and Mount Hermon (covered in snow during the winter months). Throughout your adventure you will hear about the history, geology, flora and fauna of this unique ecosystem.

We will also review the geopolitical situation while enjoying great views at the observation points, tour the local agricultural orchards, and depending on the season, we will plant fruit trees near the border fence, and/or taste the seasonal fruit (in the summer and autumn).
