Not to be mistaken with The Hula Nature Reserve close by. These two sights compliment each other. at the Agammon Lake Reserve tours are available to take the public right into the fields where thousands of cranes stop off as they migrate from Europe to Africa. It is an amazing sight. Other birds are also to be seen and we... More

The Agamon Hahula is located just north of the Hula Nature Preserve in the Galilee region of Israel. It is a major stopover for migrating birds both in fall and spring and has become the home of thousands of grey cranes. Entrance to the small lake is free. Many people walk around the area, while others rent bikes or golf... More

When travelling is Israel one can become overwhelmed by antiquities and religious sites. Take a trip to Agmon Hahula to commune with nature and observe all the birds. Particularly interesting, if you are travelling in the spring or fall, during the bird migration from Europe to the Great Rift valley in Africa. We saw thousands of cranes, pelicans and storks...

This is separate from the Hula Nature Preserve a few miles south. We saw hundreds of birds while circling the lake in a golf cart ($49) for 45 minutes. It was a nice contrast to our focus on archeology sites.

The ideal time to visit this area is from an hour before sunset until the park closes around 90 minutes later because it is at that time that the migrating birds descend and nest for the night before setting off the next day. We rented an electric cart for the 8km+ trip around the wetland area, although on much of... More

Forget the rented bikes and golf cart (I found it the hard way). Take a stroll on the north path via the small botanic garden to the pelican lookout (Mitzpor Saknaim). You can see many birds there including thousandths of noisy cranes. That were you want to spend time and take some good pictures (bring good camera). on the opposite... More

Worthwhile to visit especially in the fall months. See loads of migrating birds at a nice (not too hot) weather. It is possible to rent bikes on site.

Many great pictures and bird watching. You can have a bike ride or hike in the park or just sit and watch the birds. there is an organized tour that allows you to be closed to the birds - haven't done it but looks nice.

Fine nature reserve oriented mainly toward bird watching. Best times during migration season- like now. A lot of birds but if you intend more than watching, bring very big zoom camera and patience. The investment in the reserve tourism is nil in the last decade, except the new shop. Approach is comfortable but unpleasant under the Israeli sun (come early).... More
