Life in the Arava is not an obvious thing to comprehend. The thought of a flourishing agricultural community in the middle of the dry, arid, isolated desert raises many questions to the Arava visitor, primarily being, how has Arava become a thriving area despite the extreme conditions the desert presents?
The Vidor Center - A Window to Arava Agriculture offers its visitors a multi-sensory experiential tour highlighting the special character of the Arava. Visitors are introduced to a new world of advanced agriculture and the living plants and animals in the desert, as well as the region's water, climate and soil challenges.

The tour includes

 3D film screening
 Visit in an interactive museum
 Tour in greenhouses with the best of the region's crops

Tours run every hour on the hour

The center is open 7 days a week, from 9:00 until 16:00 (with the last tour at 15:00).
