Now that December is upon us, we can look forward to the beautiful winter festivals that will be taking place in Israel. The fourth annual Hiking in Boots event, a colorful winter festival in the Carmel, will be taking place on the weekends in December, as well as every day during Hanukka. The festival is organized by the Carmelim Tourism Association in conjunction with Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund.

Although we haven’t had a huge amount of rainfall so far this winter, there has been enough to make the flowers blossom and the streams and lakes fill with water. During the festival, visitors can participate in guided tours that will explore hiking trails, caves and museums in the Mount Carmel area.
