The Tour Plan

Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel. It is recommended to begin this tour at one of the hotels in Northern Israel to avoid  the long drive.

Our first stop will be Safed. During the 16 century, Safed grew to become an important Jewish and KABALA center (Jewish Mysticism). Its importance grew until it became one of the four holy cities for Jewish around the world.

With its dramatic setting, little alleys and streets, small yet significant synagogues, artists workshops and more, Safed today is a cultural and spiritual center that attracts religious and secular travelers from Israel and around the world. In fact it offers some unique B&Bs you may want to consider. 

Safed deserves at least 2-3 hours. We will explore ancient Synagogues including the Caro and Ari. Embrace the enchanting atmosphere of this city with its cobbled streets, iconic blue doors that connect the city with heaven above, and its dynamic artists colony.

We may decide to lunch at one of the local restaurants and next we will drive down to the Hula Valley on our way to the Golan Heights.

The Hula valley is one of the most fertile areas in Israel. It is full of Kibbutzes agricultural settlements (We may visit one on the way). Before the Jewish/Zionist settlement of the area it was mostly a swampland. Today, after a massive drying operation, at the beginning of the 20th century, only a small lake remains which is a nature reserve an a home to thousands of birds who nest here on their way from and back to Africa. 

The Golan Heights, which we will head next, stretches from Hamat Gader, next to the border with Jordan all the way up to the Hermon Mountain which is the highest mountain in our region. These volcanic heights, offers dramatic views extraordinary history. Here we will need to choose between a visit to Gamla - the ancient city that was the scene of an epic battle between the Jewish rabbles and the Roman army or a visit to the Hermon mountain. Other actives are also available - a 4X4 tour, water raffling in the upper Jordan River and more. 

You may also like to visit the sites of the 1967 and 1973 battles and learn about the current political and security situation in the area. 

An overnight stay in the area is more than recommended.
