As you sit, with your mouth slightly agape, as you watch the sun set behind the magical crater, your mind may drift towards your plans for the night. You’ve come to Mitzpe Ramon for the crazy nightlife after all, so let’s make you a plan.
Just as the day begins to dip into night, all you nature-lovers can hop into a jeep as it makes its way into the crater for an incredible expedition into the real night life. Follow along as your expert guide takes you through a natural world that has since been a secret.
Fall in love with everything celestial as you get a crash course in constellations. Brush off your night vision and see how many desert animals you can spot as you move to sit around a bonfire with your new adventurous friends.
As the jeep tour draws to a close, you can head over to Hahavit, the local’s favorite restaurant, for a well-deserved meal. Nestled comfortably in the center of town, indulge in a mix of local and western creations or go for what has been rumored to be the best burger in the world. Wash it all down with some local beer and you’ve got your night started off right.
Next up, stroll on over to the artist’s quarter for a burst of music. Hit up the local bar, Haberech, for an authentically Mitzpe experience, enjoy conversation over the eclectic music taste of the barman.
Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to pass through our town on a Saturday night to watch a live show performed by musicians from all over the country,
Maybe even luckier to pass through on a Thursday to participate in the beloved Thursday-night jam session at The Jazz Club. Get up on stage and become a part of the band or just sit back and enjoy the music drifting through the air.
Your inner party-animal now satisfied from an unforgettable night, wander away from the town’s light and see for yourself why Mitzpe Ramon is considered to be Israel’s stargazing capital. You’ll find yourself
reconsidering your existence beneath the impossibly full sky, wondering why this is not the sky you fall asleep under every night. August takes something perfect and stretches it even more by filling the sky with meteor showers renowned the world over.
For a more in depth experience, you could set yourself up with Ira the star man the guy who knows everything there is to know about stars. Get lost in the sky as you learn everything you’ve always wanted to know about the night sky.
You’ll then find your way back to the hostel, prepare yourself for bed and tuck yourself in wondering how lucky you are to have had a chance to be a part of what makes this town so amazing, wondering how soon you can come back.
