LOS ANGELES (December 16, 2015) – Los Angeles-based fitness specialist and entrepreneur Jack Witt, MS, CPT, recently launched the innovative Hike the Holy Land, which gives individuals, groups, and organizations of all faiths and beliefs the unique opportunity to experience the lands of Israel, Palestine and Jordan up close and personal on foot.
An open tour to the Holy Land is scheduled for the spring of 2016 and the make-up of registered travelers to-date is shaping up to be a diverse group of people from several faiths and beliefs, as well as non-believers.
“Registration has been solid for this inaugural trip,” Witt explains. “We’re finding that people from all religions from across the United States want to express their support for harmony and peace in this part of the world where the history is so deep, rich and multidimensional. We’ll walk the nature trails together in solidarity while seeing the iconic sites of the Holy Land and experiencing the local cultures.”
With the launch of Hike the Holy Land, Witt provides customized active Holy Land walking and hiking trips in partnership with LA-based Trinity World Tours, a longtime veteran in organizing group travel to this region of the world .
Hike the Holy Land has a few final spots available and will be closing registration soon for their inaugural trip, March 28-April 5, 2016. Unique features of the itinerary include:
- hiking the ancient fortification of Masada
- an urban hike through Tel Aviv
- walking the ramparts of the walled city of Jerusalem
- hiking the Battir Trail and taking a traditional cooking class in Bethlehem
- a hike on the Jesus Trail outside of Nazareth
- full-day, optional extension tour, walking through the Nabatean ruins in Petra Jordan, plus a Wadi Ram Bedouin camping experience.
