Israel in the Winter

No reviews, be the first!

The weather does not usually get as cold during the Israeli winter as it does in the West, but that doesn’t mean that there is not a winter. Once in a blue moon a sliver of white snow comes down and blankets the ancient cities, creating what is for certain a rare experience.

No, Israel is not known for its winter splendor, but when the temperature drops, there is still a lot to do. Because the cold moves north during the winter and creates some rain patterns, it can create a beautiful mist. Head over to the pine forests either near Jerusalem or Galilee for a romantic stroll.

Speaking of nature, flora enthusiasts will be pleased to know that the winter in Israel is also the time when wildflowers and other greenery are in blossom so take it slow if you happen to be going through the countryside, you are going to get the nicest views of the year.
