Israel not only offers a lot of history, archeology and culture, but also beautiful nature and landscapes. The country is a real MTB and cycling paradise, the maps are perfect, the paths and marks on the way leave nothing to complain about.
As I started on to my big journey, I also dreamed about cycling in Israel and discovering it from north to south. The Holyland Challenge route is perfect for that. It leads you from the Golan hights down to Eilat at the Red Sea.
The film captures some of my impressions on the way. I followed the track from Haifa and with some modifications down to Eilat.
