Hiking and Beer: A Golan Heights Backcountry Adventure!

The Golan Heights, split between Syria and Israel, is one of Israel’s most sparsely populated areas and conversely one of the country’s most interesting – both geologically, historically and as relates to the current geopolitical situation in the region.

We will hike in the northern Golan, just hundreds of meters away from the Syrian border, surrounded by the inactive, volcanic peaks that define the region as well as the vistas of Mount Hermon further to the north. Throughout history, the Golan has been a battleground for emerging empires despite its unforgiving terrain.

The hike will cover sections of the Golan Heights trail including Mount Hozek, Mount Bani Rassan and the Quneitra Valley. We will finish the day with a visit to the Golan Heights Brewery to cleanse the veins. Time permitting, we will explore a couple of other sites along the way.

  • Early bird tickets can be purchased for 169.50 NIS (limited quantities available)
  • Regular priced tickets will be sold for 189.50 NIS
