Rather than spend 4 hours in a car travelling from Jerusalem to Eilat during the Passover holidays with 3 teenagers we decided to charter a helicopter. Israel Helicopter Tours organised a great trip with a stop at the dead sea, a spectacular low flight over the ancient fortress of Massada, and a 4 hour stopover at the Ramon crater. While we were there we had a SVU tour of the crater, went rapelling down the sheer cliffs of the crater, had lunch at the brand new luxury hotel and had a course in desert archery. We were accompanied by a very knowledgebale and entertaining guide and the pilots were fantatstic. We arrived in Eilat late that afternoon safely, exhausted and enchanted by the experience of a lifetime. Needless to say the family had a blast!
