Hula Nature Reserve, Galilee

4.6
#3 of 9 in Wildlife in Northern District
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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. Using our international travel planner, Capernaum attractions like Hula Nature Reserve can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We were here in June to the Birden (bird watching) and have received a private tour by a local ornithologist, which enabled us, already around 6: 00 in the Park to go and all the many bird watching - that was really great! Even after the private tour, we were still on the road - the place is definitely recommended!

Where to stay in Capernaum

Capernaum itself offers no accommodations, with the ruins of the village thankfully left undisturbed by modern developments. Visitors usually stay in the large town of Tiberias, itself a fascinating place with Biblical history. Look along the shoreline of Tiberias for some of the more upscale resorts and hotels, with many offering their own tours of the Sea of Galilee and Capernaum. For more budget-friendly options, go farther inland and look along the side streets that run off Highway 77.
