A quick stop on our tour of Western Galilee. Although the views are nice, the cable car seemed relatively expensive at 45 shekels & the grottoes themselves are only mildly interesting, so it's not worth an overly long visit. Just past the entrance to the...More

Perfect for families, groups, kids and of course dates. Rosh Haniqra is located on the border with Lebanon and is basically s military-controlled zone but visitors are allowed to take a tour, including on bikes or small electric cars. I don't personally believe that the...More

This place is a MUST if you visit Israel. Don't leave Israel before you visit the Grottos at Rosh Hanikra.

Definitely worth the short detour. Ride the Cable Car down and enjoy the Water Caves. Interesting Railroad Tunnels from the British Occupation Era. The Buoy Line that is the Lebonese Border is really cool. Skip the Golf Carts, that was lame.

Pounding Mediterranean waters creat an incredible system of grottoes in the mountains of the farthest northern point of Israel along the shoreline. The "Cliff Restaurant" at the end of the visit is highly recommended for the view as well as the food. A bit pricey,...More

Seeing the land formations, erosion, and caves are worth the visit. Right off shore you can see the territorial water boundary between Israel and Lebanon.

Highly recommended. The main attraction is a path in nature tunnels ("grottos") punched in the rock by water. Best access way is by funicular which is also impressive. Be prepared to get sometimes wet - there are huge waves hit the rock. When storming, they...More

The tour goes out from the Kibutz near by. Their number is +972-52-379-8610. You need to book in advance. The price for up to 3 is 290 NIS. After that each additional person is 85 NIS. Age range is 10-70 years old. Oddly... More
