Anything from a half day hike to a full week trek, through the beautiful Negev landscapes of the Zin Valley or the Ramon Crater, private or with a group. On these trips we'll be camping under the stars and cooking outdoors on a bonfire. (Negev hiking)
Here's what we do best - Take Your Pick!
With over 15 years of experience we take pride in our selection of desert activities, all of which are carried out by expertly qualified guides and instructors who have made the desert their home.
Here are some examples of things to do in Mitzpe Ramon and the Negev. Any variation and combination can be arranged to give you the desert experience you're looking for. Feel free to contact us any time and we'll start planning your Negev adventure! (things to do in Mitzpe Ramon)
Practically in the middle of nowhere - under a lone Acacia tree, on a sand dune, or in a dry river bed - we'll be stretching your body, relaxing your soul and challenging your creativity, either as an independent workshop or as a part of any other activity you choose.
Beginning from Sde-Boker or the Ramon Crater, you can cover a large distance in a short time, or undertake an expedition of several days: camping out or returning to your urban accomodation for the night. Simple picnics or outdoor gourmet meals may be included. (Negev jeep tours Mitzpe Ramon)
Experience the thrill of hanging off a cliff with the Ramon Crater at your back and beneath your feet... This is something that words could never describe. (Rappelling in Mitzpe Ramon)
In case you were wondering - camping in Israel, and especially in the desert is safe and simple. The desert offers us a dramatic wilderness experience which deepens in the emptiness of the silent night. Words can not describe this - you'll have to try!
Ramon Crater Sunrise Jeep Tours
Leaving with the jeep from Mitzpe Ramon, we'll drive directly to the highest vista point inside the crater and while waiting for the sunrise we'll brew hot tea made from local desert herbs. Nothing beats this exciting experience of watching the sunrise in the crisp desert morning.
Get as close as you can to outer space in a way which is only possible in the dark desert night. Just around sunset, our "star man" will set up the gear, adjust the telescope's lens and brew the tea over the campfire. When you get to the spot everything will be ready for your stargazing experience in Mitzpe Ramon. Beam me up Scottie!

Out of our belief that supporting those in need is of major importance to our society, as of January 2015 Deep Desert Israel will donate 10% of its annual profit to Etgarim ("challenge") - an Israeli nonprofit organisation whose goal is to empower the special needs population in Israel (children and adults with physical, sensory, cognitive and mental disabilities) through sports and outdoor activities - programs also known as adventure therapy.
