Bicycle Paths


Bicycling has become an international trend which has also found a growing public in Israel . Bicycling is popular in several different aspects: road riding, off-road bicycling, extreme bicycling, individual and family riding.


The main objectives of the project are:

  • The remoteness of the Eilot Region prevents the possibility of access to the bicycle touring experience in the center of the country.
  • Tourism in the Eilot region is based on domestic tourists who visit Eilat and foreign visitors. It suffers from a definite disadvantage when compared to all of the resources and initiatives invested in the city of Eilat by the government of Israel .
  • In order to bring visitors and income to the Arava settlements, such as country lodging and regional tourism, one must be able to offer a range of possibilities that are undiscovered, yet inherent to the region.
  • To increase the income of the regional settlements by developing “Biking in the Eilot Region”..
