Take lots of water and wear good hiking shoes! Did this hike (Zavitan) the day after I hiked the Gilbon Stream Nature Reserve. This hike, the Zavitan Stream is a much easier hike than Gilbon Nature Reserve! Easy walk from Katzrin and back.

I have been here a couple of times in my life already and loved it each time. There is a variety of different treks to do and each has it's own level so there is something for everyone! Beautiful place with lots to see, and plenty of lakes and waterfalls to have a swim in! Highly recommended if you love... More

There is a variety of hikes suitable for different 'abilities'. The walk to the Hexagonal Pool is quite easy and therefore it gets rather busy there - as anywhere in Israel where there is water you can splash around in. The duration of walks indicated on the reserve's leaflet are pretty accurate, so don't underestimate the duration/lenghts of the walks.

We stayed at a hotel at the northern part of the lake of Galilee and had an extra day to enjoy the region due to an Israeli hotel policy. Usually you have to leave your hotel by about 11 am or noon but if you are schedule to leave your hotel on Saturday you can, at most places we have... More

We have just returned from another excursion to the north. This was our second stop and our main stop of the day. The heat was a setback, and our original plan was altered to just the short trail. This was advised by the staff. It took us 50 minutes to reach our destination. The reason it took so long was... More

Great wet field trip for the hot days. The full route is not suitable for little children, but a short stroll to the first natural pool and back is available.

Spent 6 month is Israel in 2001 when I heard about this gorgeous park, so decided to check it out. I was so impressed I had to visit it a few more times after that. The walk down the path to the pool is fairly easy compared to the return trip back up but pictures don't really do it justice.... More

Get there early to take full advantage of the park. We were there on a very hot day so we chose to take a couple of short hikes rather than one of the many longer hikes that take in multiple sites. We'd love to go back in the cooler seasons to spend more time there. The Yehudia falls hike is... More

If you're visiting the Golan region, and fancy a short but worthwhile stop and walk, you MUST visit the Hexagon Pools (brichot haMeshushim/בריכת המשושים). There's a few options for walks, but the easiest one is pretty great! 20 min walk down to the pool, and then an opportunity to swim in the cool water. It's not clear, but it's perfectly... More
