About Incense & Spice Route Inn

In the Arava region of Israel there is a very special place, the Incense and Spice Route Inn, where the tourist can feel the unique environment of the desert. The Arava is an extension of the Great Rift Valley. About 2000 years ago a desert people, the Nabateans created trade routes in this area which allowed the transport of precious Incense of the Arabian Peninsula to the rest of the then civilized world. The Incense and Spice Route Inn is located at the Arava, near the ancient Nabateans’ Incense & Spice Route

In 2005, UNESCO recognized this ancient route as a World Heritage site. The three mages followed the Bet – Lechem star to meet Jesus, and brought him gold, incense and mere. The Inn lies behind Moshav Zofar (an agricultural village) 130 km from Eilat. The views from the Inn consist of the magnificent mountains of Jordan on the west, and the desert dunes on the east. The Incense and Spice Route Inn offers activities and Bedouin style housing that are punctuated by the sights and smells of the old Nabate desert environment

About Us – The Incense & Spice Roue Inn was build by Ezra and Devora Ravins, as a family business. During the years our oldest daughter Netta and her husband Danny, joined us.
