What users say about Israel Hiking Maps

Our trip planning website and app

"Bottom line,
it is the best OpenStreetMap site in the world in terms of capabilities."

Ronen Bitan

"A great useful site,
all my outings out of the comfort zone start here, chapeau!"


Dror Levanon

"A killer site!
It serves me almost every time I go off-road
(on bike or foot)."


Eli Green

"As someone who has been dealing with maps and hiking routes, dirt bikes and jeeps for many years, your site is excellent and I have moved to use it almost exclusively. Thank you and the staff"

Tamid Sameyach

"It’s “the” site. I work with it on a daily basis – the most convenient and accurate there is – the only site you can upload several tracks to and sew them together."

Eyal Haver

"You are amazing. Waiting for you to issue this version for other countries...
I guide trips on a weekly basis and I plan mainly with your map. Thanks!"
