Vidor Visitor's Center

A Window to ARAVA Agriculture

Almost every visitor who arrives in the Arava asks himself: who are these "crazy" people that have built their homes in the middle of the desert? What is growing in the hundreds of greenhouses? How could there be so much water in the Arava?

Here at the Vidor Center, you will learn and experience in a unique interactive way what the Arava is all about!

The Vidor Center introduces you to the Arava in all its variety, covering topics such as the region's uniquely advanced agriculture alongside its water and soil challenges, the history of the Arava communities, geology, aquaculture, the local fascinating colorful crops and much more!

You are invited to a multi-sensory tour that includes viewing a three-dimensional film screening, a visit in our greenhouses showcasing the best of the region's crops, and a journey into our interactive museum, in which you'll be able to induce rainfall, become farmers for a moment…and get a peek into the lives of families living in the Arava.

The tour takes about an hour long

Restrooms and a snack bar are available

The center is open daily, 7 days a week, from 9:00 until 16:00, with tours beginning every hour on the hour, with the last tour at 15:00

Admission fees:

Adults – 28 NIS

Seniors, students and children (4-12) - 22 NIS

The Visitor Center is located on the Arava Highway close to the Hatzeva intersection, in the "Yair" Research & Development Center

  • Very impressive display of innovation in agriculture. The Arava is a barren land that grows 60+% of Israel agriculture export. This is a great place to stop and check see what this is all about. Perfect place to break to monotony of the way South.
