The Ein Afek Nature Reserve is the last remnant of the Na’aman Stream wetlands. It contains a gorgeous pastoral route which passes by water pools, bank flora and wooden bridges.
The En Afek Nature Reserve preserves swampland and waterway sources the majority of which have been lost in Israel. Along the swamp pathway in the Reserve, visitors “float” over a swamp surrounded by rich riverbank vegetation and colorful water birds. From the top of the ancient flour mill they can see views of the Akko valley, and in the Garden Shelter they can get an impression of rare plants from the coastal plain.
En Afek nature reserves also is ancheological site. You get to explore history, surround yourself by nature, and enjoy scenic calming views, strolling around an easy walking path. What more can you ask for?
The surrounding landscape includes a swamp, springs, a flowing stream and a meadow.
There is a Visitor’s Center on site in a picturesque structure of a gristmill and inside one can watch a film about the reserve. There is also an impressive structure from the Crusaders period which stands untouched in the center of the reserve. There is a spectacular view of the reserve and the surrounding valley to be enjoyed from the roof of the gristmill. The Ein Afek Nature Reserve is a romantic location as well as an excellent place to visit as a family.
Ein Afek Nature Reserve is located on Kibbutz Afek in the north of Israel.

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.
