Jerusalem Rappelling / Snappling


Are your kids climbing the walls at home or in the hotel? Then let Challenge Tours take them rappelling down…call Yaakov.

Challenge tours can offer unique “chavayot” (experiences) in Jerusalem. Rappel off the side of the Tayelet or in Gei Ben Hinom with the view of the Old City or down the actual Old City Walls. Yaakov, your guide is Israel’s Rock Climbing Champion and he knows how to make the experience enjoyable for a variety of ages.

Activity locations: Gei Ben Hinom, Tayalet, Ammunition Hill, Old City Walls

This is a great family activity and it takes 2 hours.


Want to really enjoy an adventure in one of Jerusalem’s most unique locations? The Jerusalem Ropes Course is located in Ammunition Hill and includes an Omega (zipline), rope ladder, sky swing and other great bonding activities.
