Ahlan wa sahlan!

Since 2005, Siraj has managed to achieve its vision of becoming one of the most prominent and innovative organizations which has driven the development of responsible tourism, re-branding Palestine as a destination for experiential travel and human connection.

As part of the Palestinian Center for Rapprochement between People (, and the sole non-profit organization licensed by the Ministry of Tourism, our vision continues to be to welcome international visitors to immerse themselves in Palestine, experiencing our hospitality, cultural heritage and unspoiled nature, bringing about a life-enriching exchange and understanding between Palestinians and visitors from other cultural, religious and social backgrounds. Siraj has been instrumental in creating NEPTO as well as the Palestinian Responsible Tourism initiative (

We are pioneers in the field of developing diverse responsible tourism programs in Palestine, such as local community tourism, home stays, interfaith, pilgrimages, cultural and fact-finding, as well as other special interest programs, such as environmentally friendly tour packages, including, the Nativity Trail, Sufi Trail, Jerusalem Wilderness and the internationally recognized Abraham's Path/Masar Al Khalil - the first long distance walking route through the West Bank (, walking/hiking ( and cycling tours (

We create unique tourism products, which maximize the contribution of the local community. We train locals within rural and Bedouin communities to be empowered, becoming the decision makers and owners of the packages which we offer to visitors, thus increasing local engagement, economic benefits through job creation, and chances for improved social development. We advocate and implement best practices resulting in positive impacts, while minimizing adverse effects on our cultural heritage and ecosystem.
