Tel Dan is one of the special places in Israel. It is a place of incomparable beauty – where you can get close to (but not go in) a relatively fast flowing (in Israeli terms) stream that is one of the sources of the Jordan
It is really outstanding. A photographer’s dream.
The main trail is fairly short and entirely wheel chair and stroller accessible. (There are also some branch routes that go further that are only foot paths.) There are some Canaanite remains further up the trail.
Tel Dan is perfect for an hour’s relaxation – enjoy the shade on a hot summer’s day. Definitely finish off with an ice-cream.
There are several restaurants in the area serving fish fresh from the streams in the area.
This is one of my personal favourite spots in Israel – I visit Tel Dan almost every time I am in the area (Jonathan).
