The “Incense Route”

incense route jeep tourThe “Incense Route” of antiquity was a network of ancient roads linking the Mediterranean world with Eastern and Southern sources of incense, spices and other luxury goods. One of the major routes passed across the southern part of Israel (The “Negev”).

Except for Avdat , all other sites can only be reached by 4X4 vehicles, but in cooporation with a Jeep tours company, I can now offer a day tour along the The “Incense Route” , from Moa  to Avdat  and Remaliah Cisterns .
