Anisa that is giving me both good memories and a queasy feeling in my stomach as I chose to do this hike after a huge tapas and sangria session the night before.
Actually it was more a sangria session and I felt terrible but the views were incredible! Haha Katy. I can see how that can happen. We were just stuffed so it felt good to work it off. Tipsy is a whole separate thing.

Here you will stay for the night in their large modern hotel, complete with swimming pool, tennis courts, and a kosher buffet for dinner.
You will leave the hotel, and trail through the Kibbutz farm, being greeted along the way with moos and cock-a-doodle-doos from the gregarious livestock. Awe-inspiring degree panoramic views greet you from atop this extinct volcano.
