Tiyul track was definitely one of the best decisions I made on Year Course. Hiking in Israel is fun, but it’s hard to get to some places, and tiyul track made getting to these places a lot easier with musch less hassle and was a really enjoyable experience.

Matt Kreitman, YC 15-16

It really took to me to places I would not have otherwise gotten to see and it encouraged me to go hiking on my weekends off. I have to say that one of the best decisions of Year Course for me was going on Tiyul Track.
