Cycling through the Negev is one of these once-in-a-lifetime experiences....and you should definitely do it with Asaf! He knows the Negev desert and its biking routes perfectly well, has great gear (we got brandnew full supsensions MTBs) and is a nice and relaxed guy with a great sense of humor. If you are fit and eager to spend a great... More

The shop allows to rent a bicycle to ride into the desert. It's an amazing experience and I can highly recommend it. Don't forget to bring water and a good mood. You can take a map with the routes when renting a bike (there are a few around Sde Boker), it was also possible to hire a guide when we... More

For my 50th birthday I invited 20 girlfriends from israel, Toronto, London, Boca raton and Johannesburg to mountain bike through the Ramon crater. None of us had ever mountain biked before. The trip guided by Assaf was transformational. We had so much fun flying over rocks through the desert on single tracks. Miraculously no one was injured and we are... More

I went on a cycling trip with my 12 year old son. Our guide Tamir made the trip educational, meaningful and physically challenging. We spent two days, one is sde boker and one in mitzpeh ramon. I highly recommend guided desert trek to get some mountain biking in when in Israel.

They maintain several beautiful trails around the area. We enjoyed The Halookim Trail, which includes a fun terrace single trail, finishing with splendid views along Tzin Cliff. Their bikes could...

Nothing spatial, nice organize place. Did not know enough places around that are not bike related, like a place to ate or sleep. Eventually I found a grate farm named Naot farm, offering both.
