The pearl of the Israeli desert, Arad is one these places that you wouldn't put on your travel map purposely, but once you visit it you realise that there are so many things to do in this city. It is situated in the middle of the desert, just 30 minutes drive from the Dead sea and offers many hiking and mountain biking trails, Tel Arad historical site, a visit to the Massada, and possibility to get acquainted with the life of the desert locals - the beduins.
This is the place where nature remains untouched, where wild life is preserved, and locals are far away from the stress of big, vibrant cities living their lives in harmony, in a calm and yet so exciting environment.
