Derech Teva is active in nature, guiding hiking groups, workshops and natural photography.

Derech Teva was established by Michal Mashiach, a fully licensed tour guide and hiking Michal Mashiachinstructor (by the ministries of Education and Tourism), an authorized ODT instructor and a well known landscape and nature photographer.

She was born in a small agricultural settlement and she grew up surrounded by open fields, orchards and wildlife, and as such her love for the outdoors and nature was nurtured which remains with her until today. Her love for nature and beauty was founded here and still flourishes!

This love sent her to learn geographical photography and she worked in the nature reserves department of the Parks Authorities as a landscape and nature photographer. She also worked for various nature magazines and newspapers providing those special nature photographs we all love!
