Kibbutz Merom Golan on the northern Golan Heights is our starting point, and as we exit through the back gate of the kibbutz we cross the Quneitra Valley on a winding road that passes through lush apple and cherry orchards.
We then climb to one of the close-by volcanic peaks for a panoramic view of Syria
, including Quneitra
, the capital city of the Syrian part of the Golan. With a relaxing hot drink in hand, we learn of the geopolitical nature of the region, as well as the pressing issues of water and the Golan
settlements, after which we descend to a border post where Israeli soldiers face Syrian soldiers on the other side.
At this point we end the tour with the return to your car or bus. This jeep tour, with its focus on the history and flora and fauna of the region is suitable for the whole family.
Kibbutz Merom Golan (Golan Heights).
All the jeep routes are feasible throughout the year. However, at the peak of the winter season (November-January) we may encounter foggy days in the northern Golan Heights.
Should this occur, we will recommend switching the route to the western slopes of the Golan Heights
Our jeeps carry 7-8 passengers depending on the jeep model plus the driver. 8 adults will not fit in 1 jeep! If you have a mix of adults and children, 1 jeep will be suitable, otherwise, you will need to book 2 jeeps.
Should there be more passengers, another jeep will be required.
