This is light adventure touring mostly routed on paved roads with some unpaved sections. This unique journey is perfectly suited for singles and couples with non-riding family and friends invited to join us in the support vehicle. As usual, we will be following the MotoDiscovery focus on blending great riding with intense cultural and historical interests. While in the neighborhood we will take an excursion across the border into Jordan to visit the remarkable 3rd century BC rose colored rock city known as Petra.
Jerusalem is a holy place venerated by the three major religions of the world; Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We will walk its ancient streets and have a private guided tour.
The Sea of Galilee figures heavily in biblical history. At only 13 miles long and about 8 miles wide, it is fed by the River Jordan and fresh water springs. It sits at the lowest altitude lake in the world.
Masada is an ancient fortress high on a mountain overlooking the Dead Sea. Within Jewish tradition, it is a venerated place. The 1st century BC Roman siege and determined Jewish resistance is part of the rich folklore of the region. An impressive sight, consider this a real highlight.
Petra is one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. We will cross into Jordan for two nights to explore this remarkable place as well as well as be among Bedouin tribesmen and explore the Wadi Rum Valley, a desert area accented by stunning mountains and canyons, rich with ancient history.
The Dead Sea is nearly 10 times as salty as the ocean, a harsh environment yet the waters and natural products in the area are known for curative properties. While in the area we’ll also visit King Solomon’s Mines and Timna Park.
The cuisine. You won’t be disappointed and we intend to try it all. Fresh is the rule, from traditional peasant dishes to fusion inspired styles, be prepared to let a notch out of your belt!
