Nestled in the heart of the Arava Valley . . .

There are regular buses from Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem and Beer Sheva. Kibbutz Lotan is about 300 kilometers away from either Tel-Aviv or Jerusalem.
The bus ride lasts approximately 4 hours from Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem, and 2 1/2 hours from Be’er Sheva. The bus route to Eilat is via the Arava Valley road, servicing mostly kibbutzim and moshavim.
There are two breaks along the way for refreshments and toilets. Tickets can be purchased from Egged.
When booking your ticket to Lotan, ask to depart the bus at Kibbutz Lotan Junction.
We recommend an alternative road (#40) via the Ramon Crater. The circuit is one of Israel's nicest, offering dramatic desert sceneries. The road is new and comfortable.
Fly to Eilat from Tel Aviv and then take a bus or taxi to Lotan. There are two airline companies flying to Eilat: Arkia and Isra-Air. Needless to say, competition has made flights to Eilat more affordable. When booking your flight from outside Israel, check for connecting flights to Eilat from Ben Gurion Airport.
