I invite you to enjoy the

Israel National Parks and Nature
reserves in Israel, is a virtual sightseeing of the most important nature sites
Preserving the Holy land
Since the Independence in 1948
Israel has strived to preserve this land which was given to the Jewish People
thousands of years ago.
What better way to preserve the
Promised Land than to take care of its rivers, reserves, lakes and wildlife.
The average Israeli likes to spend time visiting the parks with his children
and instill in them the love for this country.
I divided them by area. Remember
Israel is a long north to south country and therefore weather and terrain
conditions vary a lot.
