Tel Dan is an amazing archeological discovery (1979) identified with the stories of Abraham (Genesis 14) and the Northern Kingdom of Israel (1 Kings 12:25-33). The setting is beautiful and offers an opportunity for a lovely hike.

What beautiful walking paths through northern Israel. We were surprised (ignorant!) to learn the northern areas were so green and hilly. The ancient ruins were amazing, and gave us a new perspective on the stories of events in the Northern Kingdom.

Nice to stroll through some actual forest and see origins of Jordan River. View at high point across border to Lebanon. Take a few hours to relax and walk and soak in some history.

This is a beautiful walk and there is a lot of history. Having a good guide will be critical. You will look over into Lebanon. The arch that is 4000 years old is very interesting. It can be hot so wear the right clothes.

Tel Dan was great place to be outside for walking/hiking and educational on archeology and history. A lot of shade so even good on a hot day. Fun paths and walkways. There were lots of children. Signs and information to explain the many areas.
