We’ve reached the end of February and nature is bursting out all over. With all of the blessed rainfall we’ve received, the entire country is blossoming with colorful flowers, even more so than usual – and one of the best ways to see these beautiful blooms is on a flower tour.

Some such tours take place at popular, well-known locations, others at newer destinations. But all feature gorgeous seasonal flowers growing every which way – anemones, irises, cyclamens and even lupines.
Here are a few suggestions for fun days out to see the budding hills and fields.

Shokda Forest

One of the nicest places to visit this time of year is Shokeda Forest in the northern Negev. It is full of impressive eucalyptus trees and red anemones, which blanket the forest floor everywhere you step. There are also yellow daisies and chrysanthemums, which boldly blend with the red carpets of anemones spread around the forest.
There’s a well-traveled trail that weaves through the area, which makes walking through the forest much easier and quite enjoyable.

Darom Adom

The Darom Adom (Red South) Festival, which will be taking place through March 2, offers a plethora of family activities, guided tours, agricultural fairs, cooking in nature workshops, live performances and, of course, the annual Darom Adom Run.
