Ahlan Wa Sahlan!

Since 2005, Siraj has been achieving its vision of becoming one of the most prominent and innovative organizations driving the development of responsible tourism, and re-branding Palestine as a destination for experiential travel and human connection. We are pioneers in Palestine. Our diverse responsible tourism programs include local community tours, home stays, interfaith programs, pilgrimages, and cultural and fact-finding missions, as well as other special interest programs. We are committing to making our tourism packages environmentally friendly, and offer an extensive array of outdoor programs, including walking/hiking (www.walkpalestine.com) and cycling tours (www.bikepalestine.com) along the Nativity Trail, Sufi Trail, Jerusalem Wilderness and Abraham Path, the first long distance walking route through the West Bank (www.masaribrahim.ps).

Cycling Programs

Bike Palestine is a unique program - the only long-distance cycle tour through the country. Participants are invited to explore the landscapes, villages, cities, refugee camps, culture, and cuisine of Palestine in one memorable journey.
The ride starts by cycling from Jenin along rural roads to Sabastiya, a Roman town north of Nablus. Here riders share a traditional lunch, explore archaeological sites dating back six thousand years, wander the streets of the old city, and enjoy a traditional Turkish bath. The following day’s ride is through the Christian village of Taybeh, then descends down into the Jordan River Valley and explore Jericho, the oldest continuously inhabited city on earth. Here, first class hotel accommodations are enjoyed and a ride is taken along the shores of the Dead Sea. Another day’s ride (or, optionally, hike) leads across the desert and up to Bethlehem, taking in the Medieval Islamic shrine of Nabi Musa and the early Christian monastery of Mar Saba along the way. After a day’s sightseeing around Bethlehem, the ride continues south to Hebron, where riders explore the old city and the Ibrahim Mosque.
All accommodation will be in three star hotels, guesthouses, or with local families (if requested). All in all, Bike Palestine offers an extraordinary way to experience the beauty and meet the people of Palestine.
