Israel

Your luxury holiday through Israel guarantees history, culture, adventure, and an unforgettable experience.

A country held sacred by three faiths, Israel is steeped in history dating back to the dawn of human civilization. Travellers are often taken by Israel’s stark contrast: one day you’re meandering the charming Crusader city of Akko--one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world--and the next you are seated in one of Tel Aviv’s ultra-modern, darling cafes.

Our Abercrombie & Kent guides make it a priority to design luxury holidays that immerse you in Israel’s vibrant past and resplendent landscapes. We’ll escort you to the Golan Heights, one of Israel’s most scenic, mountainous regions; there, you’ll take in views of the Dead Sea, a hypersaline lake and one of the earth’s most unique natural displays.

With so much to offer, it’s no surprise Israel attracts travellers from around the world. Whether you’re in the market for a religious pilgrimage or you’d like to treat yourself to an indulgent, restorative getaway, Israel’s many scenic, historic, and archaeological treasures provide the ingredients necessary for the trip of a lifetime.

Award-winning luxury holidays in Israel

Brimming with ancient wonders, Israel truly is an all-ages adventure. Our carefully curated selection of luxury tours are designed to accommodate a broad range of interests. Whether you are traveling alone or with loved ones, you can rest easy knowing your Abercrombie & Kent holiday is backed by our promise of comfort, safety, and satisfaction.

From the ancient cities of Bethlehem and Jerusalem to the modern vibrancy of Tel Aviv, discover for yourself why millions of Israelis proudly call this country home. Explore the Holy Land’s many famous sights, from the hilltop fortress of Massada to the Wailing Wall, Via Dolorosa, and Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

No trip to Israel would be complete without a float along the Dead Sea, earth’s lowest point. Whether you are pampering yourself with a full day of unique spa treatments or popping in for a simple, restorative soak, you’ll leave feeling refreshed and reenergized.

Luxurious hotels for discerning travellers

To elevate your travel experience, we select only those accommodations that meet our exacting standards of luxury and hospitality.

Consistently rated among the top 100 hotels in the world, the hotel offers tremendous views of the Old City’s four quarters, the Western Wall, the Dome of the Rock, and more.

During your stay in Tel Aviv, sip a cocktail as you look out at the Mediterranean sea and the city’s famous seafront promenade at Dan Tel Aviv. This hotel is beautifully appointed and centrally located, providing easy access to commercial centers, shops, and fine dining.
