As part of the Syrian-African rift, Israel stands right above a giant strip of volcanic geologic activity. Plan a weekend or a midweek outing for two or three days in the northern Golan, where many of the volcanic phenomena shows their mark in some surprising ways.

As your first stop and general base, go to the new visitors’ center at Ha’amir (Wasset) Junction where roads 978 and 959 cross. Handmade local ceramics that connect the visitor to the land and a fully stocked spice shop, as well as the restaurants, make this a spot to keep returning to while you are exploring the area.
