  • 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.
