On-site quality tours
We offer a variety of professionally organized, exciting tours about the Kibbutz and its surroundings. The tours are given by Kibbutz members who are senior-level professionals in their specific fields, each very knowledgeable and with a wealth of experience. These tours are supplemented by lectures, discussions, films, and other activities, tailored to the needs, interests, and schedule of each individual visiting group. Also, we can combine several types of tours with a delicious breakfast and/or lunch, as well as quality, fun workshops. By advanced request, we offer guides in different languages.
TOURS OF OUR KIBBUTZ COMPANIES – NETIFIM AND JOJOBA
We offer a 1.5 hour interesting, up-close tour of on-site Kibbutz companies, that demonstrate and explain advanced agricultural techniques and innovative technologies created by our local businesses and used today around the world. The tour includes interesting presentations accompanied by a film about Netifim, which began as the innovator and now is a world-leader in the production of drip irrigation systems that created a global revolution in irrigation and fertilization industries. A visit to our Jojoba factory offers a glimpse at the leading company in the development of the Jojoba oil that today is used in the global cosmetic industry.
A guided tour of the factories include informational presentations of their history and practices, including the development of advanced technology, position in the global market, and sustainability. (Note: Closed shoes must be worn for this tour.)
Art Meets the Desert: A Journey Along the Sculpture Trail
This two-hour spectacular tour combines a variety of activities.
The Sculpture Trail was created by a pair of Kibbutz artists, Marga Fishstein and her husband Yisrael, in partnership with the Jewish National Fund. The top Israeli artists were invited to display their sculptures along the sides of the road and surrounding hills, creating an artistic dialogue amid the desert environment.
The trail also incorporates archeological sites, picnic grounds, a spectacular panoramic view, and a military camp from the Six Day War. This tour also includes a visit to the Jojoba fields, where you will learn about growing and producing plants as oil for the cosmetics industries. This tour also can integrate visits to other sites in the area, and we highly recommend that you extend your visit for a front-row seat of the stunning sunset.
