Children in The Galilee & Golan

A Family Day out with Jonathan in the Golan
Days Out in the Galilee & Golan

Bental View IsraelI am a big fan of the Golan - because of the history, the views, a feeling of open space and a (somewhat) more European terrain. It can be very hot here during the summer, but it is often more clement than other parts of the country and can get cooler towards the evening. The Golan is relatively unexplored by many foreign tourists being (relatively) far from the center of the country - even though you can drive from either Jerusalem or Tel Aviv in around 2 hours.


Here are a few ideas for a family orientated day out in central and northern Golan Heights.

 Arbel,  a moshav, has stunning views over the Kinneret from this sheer cliff face. It is also the site of an ancient synagogue.

Avnei Eitan - Indian Village
Where to stay in the Galilee & Golan

A unique camping experience - family size Indian wigwams in the heart of the Golan Heights. Children will love it here.

The camp is worth a visit - literally on the trail for the Black & White Waterfalls  (Nahal El Al), you just role out of the wigwam and start walking!


Belvoir or Kochav HaYarden

Belvoir or Kochav HaYarden (Star of the Jordan) is a massive and very impressive Crusader castle perched high above the Jordan valley – which provided strategic control of the area and a stunning view to match.

Belvoir Castle - Jordan Valley Israel

This is a real castle, well preserved, with thick walls and lots of places to explore. A children's paradise with lots of interest for adults.

Distances from Summit of Mt Bental Golan Heights Israel Towards the northern part of the Golan there are two quite dramatic hills – not incredibly high but very prominent and standing out in the terrain. Mount Avital is closed to the public, however, Mount Bental is accessible.
