Mount Hermon, located on the Israeli-Lebanese border, has a great deal of historical importance for the region. While learning about the rich history of the mountain, visitors can explore its charming villages and even go skiing during the winter months. The Banias waterfall, a natural spring that feeds the Jordan River, is also located on Mount Hermon.
The rich soil of the Golan Heights is perfect for growing berries. During berry season, which usually runs from May to September, visitors can readily pick raspberries, blueberries, cherries, and blackberries. The region is also known for its wine, and tourists can try several varieties at the Golan Heights Winery in the historic town of Katzrin.
More adventurous visitors can book whitewater-rafting adventures along the Jordan River.
