Itinerary Overview

Two days of nature and travel in Emek Harod. First day we arrived early in the morning to our cabins in Kibbutz Ein Harod Ihud, and there we already got a glimpse of the beautiful view of the Harod Valley from the cabins terrace. We spent some time in the Kibbutz, walked around and met many lovely people and felt the peaceful energy of this area. After we got a little more familiar with the Kibbutz we went drown for a swim in the Olympic pool that the cabins offer access to, it was well maintained and also had a beautiful view. Later that afternoon went to a stunning lookout point on Mount Gilboa. The next day we went for a wet trail in the waters of Nahal Hakibutzim, and stayed at the cabins of the stunning Kibbutz Nir David. All in all it was a great weekend, full of activities and nature.

  • 1 Night: Ein Harod
  • 1 Night: Nir David
    The beautiful nature around, and the peaceful place.
