Attractions and Family Fun in Northern Israel

Northern Israel has always been an attraction for Israelis and tourists alike seeking to enjoy the lush greenness and beauty of this region. The North offers a wide variety of great places to visit, activities to do with the family, adventures to experience -- and outstanding eateries along the way.  Follow the links provided below to start planning your excursion and maximizing your family’s fun!

Way Up North

Canada Center

If you miss your favorite winter sports -- the feeling of cold fingers and noses and the idea of wearing mittens -- the Canada Center for sports and recreation is for you! The center offers an Olympic size skating rink, as well as an indoor pool with a hot Jacuzzi and an outdoor swimming pool with a water slide, saunas, squash courts, table tennis, workout rooms, a soccer field and a shooting club.


Hula Nature Reserve

The Hula Nature Reserve is a swampy area nature reserve that is a scheduled stop for many migrating species. You'll find a visitor's center on the reserve and many, family-focused activities where you can learn about the various species of migrating birds that Israel hosts yearly. You can tour the reserve in a camouflaged-covered wagon pulled by a tractor -- or get the whole family on a cycle and explore on your own.  If you’re planning a visit, it is worth finding out what kinds of birds visit during which seasons. Plan your trip so you can see the greatest number and widest range of birds.
