Ascend the Golan Heights and stop for an overview of Gamla, a Jewish stronghold nearly 2,000 years ago, and also a bird sanctuary where Griffon’s vultures soar overhead.
Proceed to Katsrin, the central town of the Golan, and visit its Talmudic Village, featuring a restored home and synagogue. Then meet the locals over a falafel or pizza at the commercial center at Katsrin, where you can also visit the Golan Antiquities Museum, displaying the impressive archaeological finds discovered through the region.
Drive to the northern Golan through the Druze villages of Buq’ata and Mas’ade, stop at the lovely pool of Birket Ram and visit the fascinating Druze shrine of Nebi Yafouri, nestled among apple orchards.
Descend from the Golan along the tributaries of the Jordan River and settle down for the night in one of Israel’s most beautiful regions - the Hula Valley.
