Tel Dan, Galilee

(130+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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. Make Tel Dan part of your personalized She_ar Yashuv itinerary using our She_ar Yashuv travel itinerary planner.

  • Beautiful nature reserve. We hiked it with young children and everyone had a great time.
  • One of the nicest nature spots in the north. Has a small pond for young kids to get in. Trees, water, ruins and more. Mostly recommended at the end of winter/beginning of spring
  • Fantastic nature, cold springs and the world's oldest arch gate from 18BCE
  • If you have a few hours to spare spend them here, amazing place to walk and discover the ancient city ruins of Dan in the Kingdom of Israel.
  • interesting nature reservation, along the dan stream, wild, clean, well mantained
