The view is breathtaking, but that’s not the only thing that will take your breath away during a stay at Manara Lodge, the small hotel perched atop the Naftali Mountains in the Upper Galilee.
The hotel was recently acquired by the operators of the Manara Cliff extreme adventure site, and guests are granted a free pass to all the activities there. It also offers free access to the cable car that connects the three levels of the cliff attractions, and my son and I used it often during a recent two-night stay.
Posters around the site ask “Can your pulse take Manara Extreme?” From the moment we arrived, it was clear that this was a hotel with a difference. This is no luxury resort, so if you’re looking for a place for a romantic getaway, you should carry on looking. Kibbutz Kfar Blum’s Pastoral Boutique Hotel is one of several nearby excellent choices.
