Tour Details

Head for the Ramon Nature Reserve, home to the world’s largest natural formation of its kind, the Makhtesh Ramon. Though its shape is much like a normal crater, the Makhtesh is not the product of meteor. Instead, it is the remnants of resistant rock that surround a wadi, or dried valley that will collect rain. During your guided tour, you'll learn more about its fascinating geology including the hills, ridges, sands & colorful rock formations that call the crater home. In addition to enjoying awe-inspiring scenic views of the crater while inside the park, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in exciting activities, including 4x4 vehicle tours & rappelling.
