Get to Know the Real Israel -- Visit the Upper Galilee
The Upper Galilee region makes a great base for exploring the entire northern portion of Israel. It’s a 2 hour drive from Tel-Aviv and Ben-Gurion International Airport, and boasts some of the most popular tourist spots: Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee, Safed, Nazareth and Acre.
The Hula Nature Reserve offers an abundance of cranes, storks, pelicans, cormorants and egrets. Work has been underway for some time to restore the Hula valley to its former beauty, as swamps and lakes had been drained decades ago to accommodate farming. Agamon Hauula is famous internationally as an observation site for migratory birds.
Biblical Tel Hatzor is one of the most important archeological sites in Israel and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dubrovin Farm offers a glimpse into the late 1800s, when settlers established communities in the area. Hike the Tel Dan Nature Reserve or the Banias Nature Reserve. Also, you can raft or kayak on the Jordan River, and on streams throughout the region. Mini Jeep and bicycle tours are also available.
