The Green North – Traveling with Children in Northern Israel
One of the most beautiful regions in Israel is the green and picturesque north. This region offers a variety of tracks and trails with abundant streams, mountains and forests. It awaits you, so just bring plenty of water and high spirits. To connect first-hand to the region’s wondrous nature visit the Golan Heights, the Upper Galilee, the Western Galilee, the northern coastal region and the distant border areas.
Rosh Hanikra is one of most northern spots of our small country, located near Nahariya and overlooking Israel’s Mediterranean coastline, where the sea meets the cliffs. The site offers one of the spectacular observation points in Israel, with a cable car that takes you down to the sea grottoes as you enjoy the breathtaking view while traveling up and down. When traveling with children the accompanying history of a location, a testament to its uniqueness, is not less importance. Rosh Hanikra, located on an ancient coastal route, offers a fascinating and rich history, along with marine attractions and adventures for the entire family.
Traveling with Children to the Red South
