The Hula Valley is a beautiful part of the country where it is also possible to see a whole host of aquatic birds.

The area can be explored using a combination of driving and walking. Start at the Hula Nature Reserve on the footpath that passes along water canals and offers great views of the mountain scenery as well as the wildlife, which includes ducks, coots, and herons. Pelicans, gulls, herons and cormorants can be seen from a large wooden deck in the middle of the lake.
