Golan Heights - Israel Tours

Israel’s northern section, the Golan Heights attract visitors worldwide with their beauty and scenic pleasures

It’s no wonder that the Golan Heights are one of the most popular destinations on Israel tours. Israel’s northern section, the Golan Heights attract visitors worldwide with their beauty and scenic pleasures. The varying sights and terrain keep visitors busy for hours-the eastern portion of this area is speckled with volcanic hills while the southern and western areas feature the Basalt Cliffs that lead down to the Jordan Valley Rift, Yarmuk River and Lake Kineret. The changes that occur over the course of the seasons add to the splendor of the Golan Heights. In the winter skiers can take advantage of the snow-topped Hermon Mountain while swimmers and hikers can enjoy the lush beauty that surrounds them in the summer. Spring and fall also offer pleasurable natural attractions and temperate climates. If you’re looking for a truly unique experience while on your trip to Israel, you can have an authentic cowboy ranch experience that includes both cattle and horses!

The natural wonders of Golan Heights are endless. If you’d like a breathtaking view of the entire surrounding area, make sure you get to the summit of Mount Bental. Odem Forest, another great Israel tour site, is located in the northern Golan region and is the location of a deer reserve that includes a wide variety of different species. Nearby, you can see Rujum al-Hiri (Circle of Ghosts), a colossal structure that is around 5,000 years old. Researchers believe that this structure may have been used for burial purposes, rituals or possibly as an astronomy observatory. You may wish to plan to stop overnight during your Israel trip to Golan Heights as there are hundreds of quaint little guest houses nearby, giving you more time to experience Golan Height’s natural splendor and archeological wealth.
