You can observe the fauna, flora, landscapes, especially in the Hula National Park.
There are several areas of Isreal: the coast, mountains, and the Jordan Valley. These three areas are the most distinguished in the country.

It is also an area where the main population nucleus is concentrated, especially the Mediterranean. But also there are other seashores, on the Sea of Galilee, and the Red Sea.
In the mountains in the north, they run next to Lebanon and go all the way to Eiliat in the south. This is a totally different scenery, with peaks over 1000 metres as the Monter Meron, or Hastor. The populations here are less populated than the coast, an the extreme climates in the area have promoted the exodus to the coasts.
