Interested in exploring the parks and nature reserves that Israel has to offer as part of a holiday to the country? Israel's Nature and National Parks Protection Authority provides a valuable website to help tourists find out more about what is on offer.
From the Negev to Eilat, the site offers a comprehensive guide on what is on offer along with advice on the best time of year to visit the parks and what to do when you get there. From seeing historical ruins through to watching nature, the parks and nature reserves are a perfect opportunity to see Israel up close and personal.
Some of the sites have been restored. You can go to Corazim National Park which overlooks the Sea of Galilee and see a 2000 year old synagogue along with a reconstructured mikvah near to it.
A lot of thought has gone into this site, which provides plenty of resources into doing things that are a bit different from the usual tourist stuff involved in going to Israel.
The parks and nature reserves are a great way to discover Israel beyond its major cities and discover not just the beauty of these parks but also immerse yourself into the history of them as well.
