When it's time to see, feel and learn

Four wheels moves the body but two wheels moves the soul. It may explain why Israel is the perfect destination for a bike tour. Dan Active takes you on a cycling adventure and a uniquely dynamic way to experience Israel at its best: breathtaking scenery, fascinating history, iconic sites, phenomenal food and wine – with the comfort, luxury and attention to detail of the renowned Dan Hotels.
 
With wheels on the ground, we will guide you on a bike trip through Israel with an utterly unique perspective. Feel the warmth on your back as you pedal under cloudless Mediterranean skies through changing sceneries of scenic and natural diversity in one of the most liberating and invigorating activities you can do. 
 
For seven or eight nights, your cycling adventure will combine exciting routes with the pampering and well-earned luxury of Dan Hotels. You will enjoy unforgettable moments in front of world famous sites, be fascinated by the off-the-beaten-track jewels, entranced by ancient history and captivated by the archeology which has made this incredible country what it is today. 
 
Whatever your age or skill, the Dan Active vacations are specifically planned, giving you two riding options (from 30-80km each day) and perfectly timed water and snack breaks. You are led by certified and experienced tour guides and accompanied by a support van at all times. With the comfort and reassurance of high quality and fully equipped hybrid bikes, you need only to focus on enjoying this extraordinary journey. 
 
At the end of an exhilarating day, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the luxurious accommodation in the finest tradition of Dan Hotels, and wake up in the mornings to our delicious, nutritious and healthy breakfasts and take in the view. Whether it is the cool turquoise waters of the Med or the Red Seas, the stunning views of the Carmel or the towering walls and exotic markets of Old Jerusalem, you will be changed by this unique experience. 
Dan Active is a joint venture between Dan Hotels and Gordon Active, providing inclusive packages, catering to all your needs (bike maintenance and equipment, luggage, meals, transportation, security and more) to combine the cycling experience of a lifetime with the pleasure of luxury hotels.

From sacred Jerusalem through to the beautiful Negev scenery to the shores of the breathtaking Red Sea, the Dan Active Winter Escape will take you from Jerusalem to Eilat. We will kick off with two wonderful days spent in Jerusalem, including bike tours through the four quarters of the Old City and other fascinating cultural and historic sites. A third day will take us from the pine forests surrounding the city to the incredible natural landscape of the rolling hills and Judean desert, exploring ancient caves dating back over 2,000 years.

Then we’ll bid farewell to Jerusalem after three delightful nights spent at the wonderful King David / Dan Panorama Hotel. Next, we’ll spend an extraordinary day at Masada, and then take a refreshing and healthy (yet salty) swim in one of the world’s wonders - the Dead Sea, the lowest natural point on Earth. Afterwards, we’ll set off for Eilat, where we’ll check into the pampering Dan Eilat / Dan Panorama Eilat Hotel and enjoy a relaxing evening.

Then, we'll board the bus back to the airport.

“You have shown us so much of Israel”

We arrived on saturday evening from Germany with lots of impressions and great feelings. You have shown us so much of Israel, the society and the different problems in and around the country. If someone else wants to travel to Israel, I will recomend you!. You  gave us a feeling of safety and we had the whole time, that we were no tourists but pilgrims on the bike.
And visit again at one of our next trips.
