Join this year’s second annual Slow Tourism initiative, where you can leisurely walk hiking paths and float in natural springs in the Valley of Springs.
Slow tourism, like slow food, is a new and more unhurried way to travel, enabling visitors the opportunity to enjoy in-depth experiences and to interact with a location and its residents.
“This is the time to take it slow and really enjoy the Valley of Springs at its best. The valley is green, the rivers and springs are in full flow, and the wildflowers are beginning to bloom – making for gorgeous scenery,” Osnat Betzer, tourism manager of the Valley of Springs Regional Council, tells ISRAEL21c.
The Valley of Springs — bordered by the Jezreel Valley to the west, the Lower Galilee to the north, the Jordan River to the east, and the Jordan Valley to the south — holds many of Israel’s gems including more than 40 natural springs, birdwatching spots, historical sites, fabulous bridges, and beautiful flora and fauna.
