Nestled among ancient olive groves on Mount Carmel, we’ll visit an artist’s village. It contains one of the biggest collections of Israeli art.

Israel occupied the Golan Heights in 1967 during the Six-Day War. It is now home to an estimated 20,000 Jewish settlers and an equally large Syrian Druze population. The Trump administration controversially recognised Israel’s sovereignty of the Golan Heights in March 2019.

Many different types of grapes grow in this environment, and it’s a noted wine producing area. Naturally, we’ll go for a wine tasting session.
