Kibbutz Lodging Forum Upper Galilee

Kibbutz Lodging Forum  Upper Galilee

 

 

Kibbutz lodging is a delightful experience that combines peace and tranquility with relaxing simplicity. A vacation in the Galilee – a beautiful region that encompasses spectacular panoramas and a magical atmosphere not be found anywhere else in the world – is always recommended. Combining the two – kibbutz lodging at one of the ‘Kibbutz Lodging Forum’ kibbutzim – assures a unique experience: perfect relaxation for the body and mind; breathtaking forests, mountains and streams; wonderfully satisfying Israeli breakfasts; meticulous well-appointed hospitality units; and an affordable price range.

The Kibbutz Lodging Forum is an organization of a number of kibbutzim in the Galilee. Its goal is to promote country lodging in the Galilee kibbutzim, and includes the following: Dafna, Farod, Gadot, Gonen, Inbar, Kadarim, Kfar Blum, Kfar Hanassi, Kfar Szold, Mahanayim, Malkiya, Manara, Misgav Am, Moran, Snir, and Yiron. Each kibbutz has its own unique qualities, and all share the inherent advantages of first-rate kibbutz hospitality: spacious well-tended lawns, modern swimming pools, enjoyable playgrounds, ease of access to a variety of attractions – nature reserves, museums, kayaking, rafting and more, direct contact with the kibbutz and its teeming agricultural activities, and of course fascinating acquaintances with kibbutz members, justly nicknamed “the salt of the earth”.

For example, at Kibbutz Gadot you will find double and family rooms, an active pub on Tuesday and Friday nights, a petting zoo for the children and an impressive art gallery of kibbutz members’ work. At Gonen you will find a holiday village with a range of one- to three-room units, as well as luxurious wood cabins – the crowning glory of the resort – with Jacuzzi and balcony. At Dafna you can enjoy the unique attraction of bubbling streams flowing in between the cabins, and Kfar Blum offers lodgings specially suited to groups or a number of families vacationing together. At Kfar Hanassi you can enjoy a holistic treatment center, an art gallery selling unique work by kibbutz members, and proximity to Ziv Park with its panoramic view of the Golan Heights. Kfar Szold offers pampering family lodgings and a fascinating sculpture garden for adults and children to enjoy. The Mahanayim guest house provides a wide range of vacation units, and in Malkiya you will find a horse riding ranch and a lovely petting zoo. Manara is situated in a charming spot – about 880 meters above sea level – and within walking distance of the exciting Manara Cliff cable cars. Farod offers the visitor holiday units situated in a magical grove, along with its miniature golf course, olive press and cheerful pub. In nearby Moran you will enjoy a true sense of freedom, a plastic arts gallery and a swimming pool with the loveliest view in Israel. Kadarim provides holiday units and wood cabins, an ideal convention or lecture hall, basketball courts, tennis courts and children’s playgrounds, and Snir offers pampering suites within walking distance of the Banias Nature Reserve.
