If you prefer to hike in the more secured environment of a regulated national park, “Israel By Foot” presents you with the best options.
A very special feature of Israel’s landscape is the richness and variety of its flora, especially wildflowers. Despite Israel’s tiny area, it has about 2500 species, compared with only 1500 species in the British Isles that are more than ten times larger in area. In the period between mid-January and mid-April, wildflowers bloom in a variety of shapes and colors that will amaze and overwhelm your senses. But also, before this period, starting in September and after it up to May you can find wildflowers if you know where to look for them.
