Desert Days is an eco-lodge located right in the heart of the Israeli Negev desert, in the Arava Valley. Our eco-lodge consists of nine eco-huts, built with our own hands according to eco-construction principles. Each sustainable hut was built from homemade mud bricks, straw, and a mud plaster finish. The eco-huts are well suited to desert lodging and can accommodate up to six persons each.

Every eco-hut has an uninterrupted view of the Negev desert landscape, which contributes to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Best time to visit

Early spring is a great time to visit. The weather isn't too hot, and the rainy season is just ending. You can avoid the summer rush when schools from around the world get out and family and friends come back to visit the area.
