The Ultimate Family-Friendly Activities to do in Israel

There are plenty of things one can do or places one can visit while in Israel, but not all are fun for kids. And let’s be honest, there’s only so much walking kids can handle before they start complaining.

So, if you want to do something super interesting in Israel other than visiting all the famous historical landmarks and making your typical tourism trip. Here are several activities for all the family, keeping your children entertained and interested in your trip:

Jerusalem Biblical Zoo

One of Israel’s top family-friendly attractions is the 62-acre Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, situated in the city’s southern part.

The park is surrounded by lush nature, has a large artificial lake, and is filled with free-roaming wildlife.

One of the attractions at the Biblical Zoo is a train that circles the property and stops at various locations so guests can tour the whole place.

Over 170 species of animals coexist in the park, many of which are referenced in the Hebrew Bible. It also has a petting zoo, play area, playground, and many hands-on and engaging activities for younger children.

Superland& The Island

If you want something that’s outside the box and for all ages, these are your best options:


Travel for 30 minutes outside Tel Aviv to Superland. This amusement park includes thrilling roller coasters, fun carousels and Ferris wheels, and a variety of carnival-style activities for both young and young-at-heart visitors.

While you take a magical swan boat ride on the river or bungee jump from a pirate ship, ignore the silly Tel Aviv residents who claim that everything you need is in the White City.

The Island

The Island is a theme park on the roof of Azrieli Mall for kids between the ages of 4 and 12.

It’s a fantastic alternative to spending another day at the beach because it has water attractions like a large pool, water slides, and fountains.

On The Island, you can find a trampoline, a survival ropes course, climbing walls, video games, an electric train, a haunted tunnel, and other entertaining features.

While your kids are on the roller coaster, jumping, climbing, dancing, or on the water slides, you can unwind in the pool area while keeping an eye on your kids.

Timna Park

Timna Park, located in the Negev Desert close to the city of Eilat in the south, offers a breathtaking view of the area’s geological past.

Timna Park’s 15,000 acres are situated in a valley that is in the shape of a horseshoe. Families are invited to explore this desert park and enjoy sights like the world’s first copper mine and a lake in the middle of the desert!

Families can take the Timna Park and Desert Agriculture Tour from Eilat to enjoy an all-inclusive park tour that offers the chance to create sand art, and sample recently picked vegetables from a desert greenhouse.

Naama Farm

A trip to the Naama Farm in Western Negev is a beautiful opportunity for families with young children to spend the day outside and interact with animals.

The Naama Farm is one of Israel’s biggest goat and sheep farming operations, providing the majority of the goat and sheep milk consumed in the nation.

Families can walk through the stables and interact with the animals, feeding baby goats, and milking lambs, among other activities.

Additionally, the farm offers a variety of classes where kids may learn how goat cheese is created and participate in other arts and crafts projects.

Ramat Gan Safari

The Ramat Gan Safari is one of Israel’s most well-liked family-friendly activities!

The Ramat Gan Safari, one of the largest zoos in the Middle East, is the ideal location for families seeking an authentic African safari experience in Israel.

The 250-acre park is home to African creatures that are allowed to roam about freely. Visitors can take a safari ride through the area, which houses a zoo with over 1600 species.

Negev Desert

Camel Rides

Riding camels and learning about these unique desert creatures is a fun and unforgettable experience for families.

Additionally, it is among the best ways to explore the desert. There are several ways to take camel rides safely and ensure that the animals are treated and cared for appropriately around the Negev desert.

A fun and unforgettable family outing is a trip to the Negev Camel Ranch. There are many hiking paths, mountain bike trails, jeep trip opportunities, and camel tours in the Negev Camel Rach.

Another type of activity in the desert everyone can enjoy is the more acrobatic and athletic type, like this one.


Head to the desert if you’re looking for more unique, family-friendly activities in Israel!

Sandboarding in the Negev Desert is a memorable and enjoyable experience for the whole family that is suitable for both children and adults.

Families can enjoy the breathtaking desert scenery and a thrilling and unforgettable experience.

More Daring Activities

These are some of your best options if you are looking for activities that are a little more extreme or for the ages above 12.

Jerusalem Ropes Course

Ropes courses are a great way to challenge your physical and mental strength.

The Jerusalem Ropes Course includes an 80-meter zip line, a rope ladder, swings, and an acrobatic rope walk. It is the ideal team-building activity that requires both physical and mental strength.

The challenging tasks provided will give visitors a sense of confidence and accomplishment. It’s great for people of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, and the whole family will enjoy it!

Jerusalem Rappelling/Snapping

Not your ordinary Jerusalem sightseeing trip.

Rappelling off the Tayelet or Gei Ben Hinnom with a view of the Old City is a wonderful way to explore Jerusalem.
