Holiday in Hurfeish

Gushing streams and impressive mountains are just part of what makes the Galilee such an amazing part of the country. In addition to the area’s unique natural surroundings, it’s also home to populations hailing from a variety of cultures who live side by side in peaceful coexistence. Every time I go hiking in northern Israel, I meet new people who have fascinating stories to tell. In the past, I would feel like I’d had a unique cultural experience if I stopped for hummus in a Druze village. But recently, I’ve discovered heritage sites and heard delightful tales by people from a variety of communities from whom I’ve learned a tremendous amount.
