About Myself:
My name is Erez Speiser. I was born in Israel in 1966, living now in Rakefet (Lower Galilee). By education I am a mechanical engineer. For the last decade I hold a marketing position in a multi-national metal-cutting tools company.
However, my true Passion had always been nature and outdoors. I Enjoy Hiking, Mountain biking, Wind Surfing & Stand-Up Paddling.
I Love Israel and its nature and since 2018 I started to put my skills, passion and knowledge into promoting Hiking tourism in the country through this website.
The website is “solo built” gradually by myself without any assistance.  (writing, Mapping, Graphics and Web design).
