The Jordan River is not only the most famous river in the Bible, but is also a prime kayaking and canoeing destination for Israelis and visitors.

The Jordan River is formed from several streams of waters from snowy Mt Hermon. It becomes a single river near kibbutz Kfar Blum in the Hula Valley.

Canada Center Metula

Canada Centre is situated in Northern Israel, in the town of Metula, in the Upper Galilee. It is one of the foremost and striking tourist attractions in Israel.

It sits on a mountainside observant to cylindrical charming scenery and offers an abundance of possibilities such as sport activities, pastime, culture, and seclusion. The activities provided by the center are programmed for all ages, families, and groups in every season of the year.

Mt Hermon

The highest point in Israel is an inviting place to hike all year round. Skiers, of course, will head straight for Mt Hermon in winter, but those who prefer to walk can also have a ball there.

When summer has already set in over the rest of the country, Mount Hermon is still bursting with the vitality of an extended springtime.

In the months of July and August, take a break from the beach and the steaming city and cool off on the Golan. Don't forget to bring warm clothing with you because the nights are cool. On a clear day, which is the norm in summer, you'll have a superb view of the mountains of the Galil, the Golan, and southern Lebanon.

Zoological Center Tel Aviv

Also called the Ramat Gan Safari, the Zoological Center Tel Aviv in Ramat Gan opened to the general public in 1974 as an African animal park. In 1981, a modern zoo was established in the middle of the park, populated with animals brought from the former Tel Aviv Zoo, which had closed.

The combined African Park and zoo are popularly known as the "Safari". The African Park and the zoo within occupy 250 acres and include 1,600 animals of different species: 68 species of mammals, 130 species of fowl, and 25 species of reptiles.

The Safari is the largest animal collection in the Middle East and is unique in the world, because of the large herds of mixed species of African animals that roam the spacious African Park. The zoo contains a variety of animals from around the world.

Dolphin Reef Eilat

Located on the shores of the Red Sea, is an ecological site unique in Israel and throughout the world where visitors can enjoy a natural atmosphere, magical views, secluded beach, together with the unusual opportunity of meeting and observing dolphins in their natural habitat.

A group of “bottlenose” dolphins, including babies born at the site, maintain their daily routine of hunting, playing, courting and socializing. They are free to choose between human companies or to continue their daily routine in the group. The fact that the dolphins choose to be with us reinforces, in our opinion, the true bond created between them and us.
