What’s There to do in Gedera?

June 23rd 2017

When you’ve been to Israel a few times already, you start to tire of doing the same standard tours and attractions every year. Gedera is a tiny hole in the wall city in the central district of Israel, just south of Rehovot. And if you blink, you just might miss it! If you’re looking for some enjoyable day trips that aren’t the typical Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, or Eilat scenes, then check out all the fun that’s happening around Gedera right now!

Kahanov Winery

A family-run vineyard, the Kahanov Vineyard and Winery is as charming an experience as you would expect from a century-old business that was handed down lovingly from father to son and then grandson. Each bottle of Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Verdot comes from carefully hand-picked grapes grown right there in the vineyard, aged in oak barrels for years to give it the unique and delightful flavor Kahanov wines are known for. Guided tours are available, and come complete with a complimentary luncheon.

Fruit Picking at Agron

With the drier climate and the wide open space, Gedera has become the ideal setting for several fruit fields. This is a great day trip that you and the kids will have loads of fun doing. Walk through the acres of fruits growing all around you, marvel at the wonders of nature, and, of course, grab a basket and dig in. Enjoy delicious strawberries, raspberries, plums, and more for reasonable prices and lots of fun.

Nahmany Art Gallery

If you enjoy a good art gallery, then this is the perfect location for you. Nestled just near Ashdod in the quiet city of Gedera, the Nahmany Art Gallery is a hidden treasure not to be missed. It is situated in lush garden surroundings, and the artwork is beautiful to behold. What’s more, the gallery offers workshops for kids to help them learn from a young age how to express their inner artist. What a great way to spend the day!

These are just a few of the gems you’ll find when you start looking outside the box of Israeli tourism. Like the idea of visiting off the beaten path sites in Israel? Then check out what you can do all over Israel today!
