Walk through history on the awe-inspiring Masar Ibrahim al Khalil long distance walking route through the West Bank, Palestine. Incredible walking, peerless hospitality, empty trails.
Palestine (or the Palestinian Occupied Territories) is a destination mostly associated with ‘Holy Land’ tours, the focus of which is mainly Jericho. But the West Bank is an area of unending interest, beauty, warm welcomes and delicious food. The landscape is varied from Mediterranean olive groves in the north to date palms and dry desert in the south. Between the two ends of the West Bank are mountains, canyons, cities and many thousands of years of civilisations whose marks have been left across the land.
We focus on walking trips here, as we have found that 3 miles per hour is the best pace to understand this landscape. Our hikes are usually supported and the people you’ll meet, stories you’ll hear and sights you’ll see will fire your imagination for many moons to come.
Follow your nose to the West Bank and we guarantee you will not regret it.
