Spring Classic Israel Tour May 2023
May is a wonderful time to cycle in Israel. Spring Classic Israel 2023 offers riders the chance to enjoy Israel’s spring weather, while experiencing the country in a way you never could on four wheels.
During this spring classic, we spend time in the glorious north of Israel, the
Jordan Valley, and spend our final days in and around the Judaean mountains. As with every KCT tour, we’ll have SAG support throughout.
Every night we’ll stay in a luxury hotel – details in the What’s Included tab.
