In Israel, to cope with the summer heat, and in some areas the humidity, the wise thing to do is to find fresh, cool water and get yourselves soaking wet. The best way to do this is to travel north where a wide selection of rivers and pools can be found.
You may decide to take part in some water activities which could include, rafting, swimming and water hiking or just dip your toes in a stream or wade in a cool, shallow, shaded water pool.
You can stroll through the lush greenery of the Tel Dan Park enjoying the cool shade provided by the trees and bushes and wade through the small streams while you wander around the hiking trails surrounding the main river.
The lake is shaped liked a violin or in Hebrew - Kinneret. These days, due to the lower water levels, it looks more like a harp.
The source of the Senir or Hatsbani Stream is in Lebanon. It's the longest of the Jordan River's tributaries. You can clamber along rocks or walk along the path ways that run along side the cool waters. In shallower, less rapid sectons visitors walk through the refreshing water and dip into the small swimming holes scattered throughout its course.
You can enter the water and splash through parts of the Amud stream which flows all year round through shaded groves and just like the other water sources mentioned, it eventually finds its way south and trickles into the northern shores of Sea of Galilee.
