Israel and Lebanon are both renowned for being hot and dry, but the arrival of autumn brings cooler temperatures, meaning it is the perfect time to explore these impressive countries. A visit to these two countries will be an experience brimming with political insight and cultural immersion.
Few places on earth possess the breathtaking beauty and eerie stillness of Israel. Meet with members of the Israel Defence Force and travel to the Golan Heights to understand the intricate political dynamics of the region. In jeeps, drive off-road into the demilitarised zone and along the Syrian border and learn about the complexities of the civil war in Syria and its consequences for the wider region.
Lebanon is also renowned for the production of the oldest wines and at this time of year, the traditional grape harvest takes place. Visit the oldest commercial winery in Lebanon, Domaine des Tourelles, and sample the delights of the local wine with the guidance of a sommelier, before dining amongst the vines as the sun sets.
We believe that autumn is a season that offers many extraordinary experiences unique to other times of the year.
