Hula Nature Reserve, Galilee
(4.6/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
Spreading over the wetlands, Hula Nature Reserve supports water buffaloes, nutrias, otters, and swamp turtles, plus numerous indigenous plants and 200 species of migrating birds. The project of creating Israel's first nature reserve started in the 1950s, when swamps around the lake were drained. Follow the main swamp trail, dotted by bird-watching posts, and look out for kingfishers, pelicans, storks, cormorants, cranes, and waterfowl. The visitors' center features dioramas and 3D films on wildlife and bird migration. Remember to take binoculars with you.

  • It is a small nature reserve, where you can see the birds, fish, turtles and other animals and lots of water plants. The Park passes loop walking trail with a length of about 1.5 km, some of it is located on the covered footbridge directly over the water. The trail is flat, easy walk is not tedious. There are build for bird-watching.
