Rosh Pina Travel

Not all vacations have to be centered on the beach and a Rosh Pina travel vacation is a great example of an alternative destination. This delightful old town is full of charm, with flowers and herbs growing in every nook and cranny, family restaurants serving excellent kosher cuisine, stone houses, small businesses and a vibrant artists’ colony. Peek beneath the surface of this sleepy town, and there is a host of things to do, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to make any Rosh Pina vacation a delight.

 

Rosh Pina is one of the oldest moshavot in Israel, situated on the north eastern slopes of Mount Canaan and looking down over the Hula Valley and the Golan. It was founded in 1878 by ultra orthodox Jews who settled here with the financial backing of Baron Edmund de Rothschild.

 

Those making their own Rosh Pina travel itinerary will find this charming town has retained its cobbled streets and old houses, one of which is covered in clocks of all shapes and sizes. The town is clustered around the House of Officials where visitors can see an audio-visual presentation about the history of Rosh Pina before exploring the beautiful Baron’s Gardens on the hilltop, said to be modeled on the gardens of Versailles.

 

Rosh Pina travel invites visitors to linger in this lovely area, explore the old town with its synagogue and see the second modern Hebrew School built in Israel. Discover the house of Dr Mer where he researched malaria during the 1930s and then spend a quiet moment in the peaceful cemetery where the founders of Rosh Pina are laid to rest. At the other extreme Rosh Pina has a bustling shopping center offering all the conveniences of a modern town in its new commercial complex.

 

Due to its more rural location, Rosh Pina travel offers guided tours to the Korazim National Park, Tel Hatsor and the Nahal Rosh Pina. It is an excellent base for those wanting to take tours hiking in the mountain, horseback riding, mountain biking or go on an exciting jeep excursion. Travel to Rosh Pina is all about history, culture and its wonderful natural surroundings.

 

Those on vacation in Rosh Pina will be transported to another world, and surely enjoy a most refreshing day out.
