Ahlan Wa Sahlan!

Since 2005, Siraj has been achieving its vision of becoming one of the most prominent and innovative organizations driving the development of responsible tourism, and re-branding Palestine as a destination for experiential travel and human connection. We are pioneers in Palestine. Our diverse responsible tourism programs include local community tours, home stays, interfaith programs, pilgrimages, and cultural and fact-finding missions, as well as other special interest programs. We are committing to making our tourism packages environmentally friendly, and offer an extensive array of outdoor programs, including walking/hiking (www.walkpalestine.com) and cycling tours (www.bikepalestine.com) along the Nativity Trail, Sufi Trail, Jerusalem Wilderness and Abraham Path, the first long distance walking route through the West Bank (www.masaribrahim.ps).

Local Community Trainings

Siraj has brought attention to the issues of addressing and implementing responsible tourism policies by local tourism providers.  Therefore, we have organized community trainings, where locals are being empowered by inclusion in the decision-making process to take ownership of the project which has resulted in achieving economic, social and environmental aspirations of both local residents and visitors. 

Our trainings of local guides lead to job creation opportunities which are improving their livelihoods and overall the welfare of rural villages.More women are becoming involved in our trainings, increasing their capacity to lead their own initiatives in their local communities and councils.
