Now that the temperature outside is pretty high, it’s time to search out all the amazing hike options that include water. In the Golan Heights there are lots of options for getting wet during hikes. This week, I’m going to describe a fun, easy hike in Jordan Park that’s perfect for the whole family. You can even add on an overnight stay in a local bed-and-breakfast to enhance the trip.

This hike through the 121-hectare park is great for people looking to walk through water and also view interesting historical remains. There are plenty of wild and natural areas within the nature park, with lots of walking trails to pick from. The Jordan River flows through the park, and there’s also a spring called Ein Mashafa. You can pick from a variety of hikes that range between 20 minutes and two hours, during which you might catch a glimpse of local fauna, such as wild boars, otters, mongooses and fish. There’s also an overnight camping site on location, a playground, a place to rent Tomcars or go kayaking on the river. During the hot summer months, there will also be a few nights when the park is open to visitors.
