The Golan is a unique strip of land that is full of some of the most beautiful nature sites in Israel. It has a rich history, archaeological treasures, fascinating personal stories, and infinite vistas.
Come discover what happens when nature, history, and quality goods all come together; enjoy the diverse tastes, smells, and views that are all…Golan.
The Golan offers you an unforgettable vacation experience in unlimited sites, throughout the year. See and experience blooming wildflowers, flowing riverbeds, meaningful heritage sites, challenging sporting and fitness events, breathtaking attractions, and great nature hiking.
Enjoy the culinary treats and quality agricultural produce in restaurants, wineries, olive oil presses, honey farms, and dairies. And at the end of your day, the Golan also offers many diverse options for lodgings.
In addition to the changing of nature in the Golan, there are also various attractions and unique activities that the area offers you: wineries, olive oil presses, visitor centers, pick-your-own orchards, jeep tours, drive-your-own ATVs, horseback and donkey riding, biking, Segway tours, lantern tours, galleries, workshops, spas, and more.
The parks and nature reserves have many hidden secrets. You can visit the unique antiquities of Gamla, the water trail in the Majraseh, the Jordan River in Park Hayarden, or the breathtaking view from Mt. Bental. You can go for an easy family walk, or a challenging hike. And of course, you have the Golan Trail, with its green-blue-white trail markers.
The Golan is home to rare volcanic phenomena, like the Great Juba, the Geomagnetic Reversal Point, several ash cones, and many dormant volcanoes.
Thousands of years of history and Jewish presence in the Golan have left their indelible mark here. Magnificent synagogues can be found in Gamla, Park Katzrin (the Talmudic Park), Dir Aziz, Kanaf, and Ein Keshatot, to name a few.
In 1967, the Golan returned to Jewish hands, but at a heavy price. The Jewish presence in the Golan was threatened again in 1973, but only temporarily. Over 166 memorials can be found throughout the Golan, and they tell the stories of bravery and courage. Some of the more well-known battle sites are Tel Saki, Mitzpe Gadot, Tel Faher, and the Valley of Tears, to name a few.
The topography of the Golan allows for extensive sport-related activities. There are many sporting events and competitions, such as the Volcano Race, and the Mt. Hermon Ascent Challenge.
