Adventure Travel in Israel – the ultimate challenge
Feb. 2012 Miami, FL
Now, the leaders in Homeland Security Training, SSI – a Miami based company that has taken hundreds of Homeland Security professionals from the military, police, reserves and more to Israel for training – is now giving men and women who are fit to enjoy the travel adventure of a lifetime. They will find out why Israeli’s are tough by taking the Israel Warrior challenge. Those taking part, and SSI is already inundated with bookings, will experience some of the most beautiful parts of Israel, off the beaten track and at the same time learn about the spirit that enables Israeli’s to love their country so much and be so good at defending it. “ I came back from this trip with a whole new sense of confidence about myself and awe for the people of Israel and the beauty of that country”, states a participant that went on the trip (You can see reviews and testimonials on the company website www.homelandsecurityssi.com
After arriving in Israel, the group will be transferred from Ben Gurion Airport straight to the Northern City of Haifa. Even before they get over their jet-lag from the 7 hour time difference, they will have a full day of Training – on Sunday – the first day of the week in Israel. The day is dedicated to Krav Maga, the Israeli art of self defense.
The following days are spent on the Northern border hiking in areas that are special permit only, like the Black Canyon, and learning about everything to do with tracking in that area. On the way to these “missions” participants will visit some of the most beautiful places of interest and learn about the conflict in the Middle East by being at places like the Golan Heights and the Northern Border – where across the border, they will see Hezbollah forces always motivated to attack Israel at any time. Day after day of excitement follows the participants including visits to the Stone Arch, a spectacular rappelling natural arch. As they rappel down, they will see some of the most spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Galilee.
Not to forget that this is about Warriors. Participants will get to train with former Israeli commandos from elite units that will show them their stuff. And after witnessing the beauty of Jerusalem, and the night life of Tel Aviv, known far and wide for its liveliness and for being one of Europe’s best party towns. Participants will embark on the adventure of their lives rope swinging down the Salt Cavern’s of the Dead Sea named Fox’s Chimney and scaling Masada on the way back up – the Israeli fortress of resistance against the Romans where everyone committed suicide rather than surrender in the year 74 AD.
SSI President, Henry Morgenstern, himself an Israeli, who has accompanied more than 20 groups to Israel over the last few years says, “For the young and young at heart that are reasonably fit, this will be the adventure of a lifetime. All activities are optional for all participants so that if someone does not want to go rappelling down the mountain, they can lay back and enjoy the views. We are experts at safety having been entrusted with the US Homeland Security professionals so we know what we are doing there.”
