Shalom everyone and welcome to Backpack Israel!
Wikipedia defines “backpacking” as “a form of low cost, independent travel. It includes the use of public transport, inexpensive lodging such as youth hostels, often a longer duration of the trip when compared with conventional vacations, and typically an interest in meeting locals as well as seeing sights.”
Backpack Israel is meant to help you travel Israel on a budget and see it a bit from a local’s point of view. I hope you’ll love it like I do!
My name is Lior and I’ve been travelling Israel and the world from a very-very young age. I’ve also been working as a travel writer for the Hebrew travel site, tiulim.net, since 2012 and I am a certified Israeli tour guide since February 2019. I opened Backpack Israel in 2016 after I understood there’s not enough info on the web for independent travelers to Israel. Hope there’s a bit more info now 🙂

I hope that my website will help you travel Israel on a budget. I am always doing my best to add quality content to the blog. When traveling Israel to create content, I fund almost all my stays in hostels and visits to attractions to get the most authentic experience and not owe anything to anyone. Your support will help me travel more and create more valuable content for travelers, and will keep my motivation high. So… If you want, you’re welcome to buy me a coffee. I will appreciate it greatly!
