The Israel Nature and Parks Authority is making it easier for travelers to visit the country’s nature reserves and national parks with its new Israel Pass.
Created in conjunction with the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Transport and Road Safety, the Israel Pass combines public transportation with national parks and nature reserves, and includes up to a 20 percent discount on entry fees and public transportation. National parks and nature reserves included with the pass are among some of the most popular in Israel such as Masada, Ein Gedi, Caesarea, Qumran, and Eilat Coral Beach. The full list of inclusions, however, has more than 20 options for travelers to explore.
Currently sold in Terminal 3 of the Ben Gurion airport, the Israel Pass will soon be available for purchase at all major tourist sites. Money on the Israel Pass is interchangeable between buses and trains, and will also offer travel discounts on accommodations, restaurants and cafes. In addition, the cards offer a daily or weekly option and can be reloaded online.
