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.
Store and Coffee Shop
At the center, there is a coffee shop and an operated store that sells unique Arava products, such as fruits and vegetables (varied depending on season), and art work from the bests artists in the area. The seating area for visitors is either in our spacious lobby or beautiful big balcony, making our center an ideal resting spot for those coming from near and far.
