Tel Dan, Galilee

4.8
#12 of 42 in Sightseeing in Galilee
Landmark Tourist Spot
A lush nature reserve on the Israeli border with Syria and Lebanon, Tel Dan offers a mixture of hiking trails and archeological sites. Trek through the green vegetation along a river past rushing cold-water springs, and visit pagan altars where the ancient Tribe of Dan offered animal sacrifices to their gods (look behind the biggest for the bunkers used by Israelis in the Six-Day War). The site also features an Arabic stone grain mill and two ancient city gates--one of them mentioned in a biblical story about Abraham rescuing Lot. Archeological findings from the ancient city of Dan include a broken 9th-century stone with an inscription referring to King David.

  • Great place with multiple opportunities to hike. Very nice to go all the way, not a bad track, equipped the truth sometimes stones, but water with PURLs beneath them. Very nice place

  • Instead of several hiking trails. The shortest route for about an hour, and two and a half long. If the Rangers without children, i.e. at a rate faster, shorter times. Should you take the long route, which is mostly shaded and meet a lot of gushing streams along the way. A guided tour. A network of streams that, wrapped in lush greenery. One of the diamonds in the Crown.

  • No matter where you go in Tel Dan reserve prepare to be accompanied by relaxing sound of flowing water. In Tel Dan you'll find river and streams, also remnants of ancient city. Lush vegetation and butterflies will make you feel in jungle. It's recommended to walk towards ancient city first. Because you will likely be very much impressed by a river. And it's better to leave it to an end. Don't miss water mills, Winnie the Pooh tree and Paradise circle. There's a shop selling ice cream, coffee and souvenirs.
  • One of the most beautiful sites we visited in Israel. Serene. Historical. Be sure to include this on your visit!
  • Very nice nature reserve, cool even in hot weather and the best thing is you can bring you dog
  • One of the best and more exciting natural and historical reserves in Israel. Don't miss the huge Oak and the some 3000 yrs old "Gate of Abraham"
  • Beautiful nature reserve. We hiked it with young children and everyone had a great time.
