Hula Nature Reserve
The Hula Nature Reserve is a wetland home to tens of thousands aquatic birds. The Hula Valley was once an important rest-stop for migrating birds that were making their annual trip from Europe to Africa and back. After the State of Israel was established it was decided to drain the Hula swamp and to turn it in to arable land. Part of the waterscape was preserved with a 3200 dunam lake kept as a nature reserve. Thousands of birds of other 200 species stay in the reserve as they know that there is an abundance of food here. Rare aquatic plants are also sheltered here and species that have become extinct in the wild have been reintroduced in the reserve. The reserve has paths, a floating bridge over the swamp and areas from which the birds can be observed. The paths are wheelchair accessible. The Oforia Visitors Center shows visitors a model of the Hula Valley, dioramas and a multimedia presentation of a flock of migrating birds with exciting special effects. How to get there: On road 90 turn east 3km after the Yesud Hama’ala junction.
Open Hours: 8:00-16:00

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
