  • Duration: 13 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5209JERGOLAN
  • Details
Discover the beauty of Israel’s Golan Heights in all its rugged, mountainous glory, on a full-day tour from Jerusalem! On the journey to the national park, enjoy several photo stops including one at the sacred baptismal site of Yarendit, and then explore Golan Heights’ ancient capital, the village of Katzrin, on a walking tour. In the afternoon, visit the summit of Mount Bental to soak up soul-stirring views over Syria’s Quneitra Valley before returning to Jerusalem.
Leave your Jerusalem hotel and travel north to Golan Heights, the stunning mountainous region in northern Israel. Golan Heights lies some 118 miles (190km) away from Jerusalem, so – to break up your journey – enjoy a couple of photo stops along the way.

Ogle the views from the vantage point of Megiddo, where successive ancient settlements were built on top of each other, and then stretch your legs at Yarendit, the sacred baptismal site on the banks of the Jordan River.

Your first stop is Hammat Gader, a hot springs on the edge of the Syrian and Jordanian border, where you’ll stop for photos. Then, continue to the village of Katzrin to admire its sights on a walking tour. Though it's considered as the capital of Golan Heights, Katzrin is actually a Talmudic (ancient Jewish) village with incredible ruins scattered all around. Visit Katzrin’s synagogue, and admire the remains of the 6th-century building that still features some original decorative details. Look out for ancient Hebrew inscriptions on the ruins of the synagogue’s original walls and columns as you walk around.

After a break for lunch (own expense), travel by coach to the top of nearby Mount Bental – one of Golan Height’s extinct volcanoes. Towering above the Golan plateau, the mountain lends itself to breathtaking views over Quneitra Valley in Syria. Pose for photos against the valley backdrop, and then start your journey back to Jerusalem.

Your day trip finishes with a hotel drop-off in central Jerusalem in the early evening.
