A wintry night in the Golan
Deep winter puddles, fog is covering mountain tops, falling leaves are everywhere, black basalt rocks, winter that has come early and aroused hopes in the hearts of farmers and in ours and it's cold in the Golan Heights in winter.
Because of that and only now, when nature is grey and beautiful, the air is clear and clean and rain washes the land , the safe option is to climb into bed with a hot beverage and a warm blanket. But there is in fact another option: to go out for an excursion in the car or on foot and watch the marvelous flowing of streams. Just don't forget the thermos.
And this time we have a special offer for sleeping in tents. Yes, this isn't a mistake the Golan is offeringgreat camping sites in winter of all seasons with Indian Tipi tents, Mongolian Yurts, delightful huts etc. Every site has its exclusivity and special location and what is common to all is the heating.
Members of the Golan club will get special benefits upon showing their valid membership card.
