Are you ready for an adventure? Then buckle up and get ready to explore one of the most fascinating places in Israel – the Golan Heights.
So, what exactly is the Golan Heights? Well, it’s a rocky plateau located in the northeastern part of Israel, bordering Syria and Jordan. The region is known for its gorgeous landscapes, picturesque villages, and ancient ruins.
Israel day tours are our specialty, and our Golan tour is no exception. This one day Golan Heights tour starts with a drive along the scenic coastal road, stopping at an overlook of Megiddo along the way. The journey continues through the Jordan Valley and stops at the baptismal site on the Jordan river, where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. It’s an incredible place to visit, and you’ll have the chance to dip your toes in the water and take some fantastic photos.
After that, we ascend the Golan Heights, and from Hammat Gader, you’ll get an overview of the triangular border with Syria, Jordan, and Israel. It’s a breathtaking view that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world. From there, we continue to the city of Katzrin, the Talmudic capital of the Golan. The town has a rich history, and you’ll have the opportunity to visit the ancient synagogue of Katzrin, which dates back to the 4th century.
Next, we ascend Mt. Bental, where you’ll have an incredible view of the Kuneitra valley and stop at a former Syrian fortification. It’s a great chance to see some remnants of the region’s troubled past and learn about the ongoing geopolitical situation in the area.
Finally, we head back to the hotels, but not before we stop at an excavation site of an ancient village. It’s a unique opportunity to see some of the history of the area firsthand and learn about the lives of the people who lived there.
