22/11/2018 - 28/11/2018 - Hula Valley Birds Festival

 

 

The 8th Hula Valley Bird Festival

 

Our "Hula and more" fall migration Festival is definitely one of the “not to be missed” events on the International Birding calendar. The combination of great weather, fantastic birds, wildlife and memorable migration moments cannot be beaten. The Hula Valley Festival is by far THE BEST VALUE package for fall birding in Israel. With the added Negev excursions this is an incredible tour that truly catches the essence of fall migration in Israel.

The Festival offers a week birding program, based at excellent Hotels and led by the finest tour leaders in Israel. Past festivals hosted hundreds of Birdwatchers, photographers and bird lovers from all over the world. Besides spending time at the magical Hula Valley, we set out to explore all the diverse avian wonders of Northern Israel; from the alpine summits of Mt Hermon to the low lying shores of the Sea of Galilee. The final days are devoted to the magical, bird rich Negev desert. Our festival tours usually see around 200 species of birds and around 15 species of mammals!

Following the success of previous years, the festival will head down to the Negev for some added Desert spice! Following great birding in the north, the final days of the festival will focus on the Negev Desert where participants will enjoy some rare desert birds and raptors, some of the most scenic places in the country and much more!
