Kyaking with Kfar Blum Kayaks

This is not white-water rafting - just 1 to 2 hours of lazy floating with the current down the Hazbani, Banias and then Jordan River in inflatable kayaks holding up to 2 or 6 people rented from Kfar Blum Kayaking adjacent to Kfar Blum. Children have to be 5 years or older. A longer 2½-hour ride is also available. This is faster at its beginning and there are coves and beaches to stop at. There are no rapids on either trip, except for a very small one at the end (which was deliberately put there to provide the experience). Other companies provide similar and also more challenging experiences.

Lockers are available. For the longer trip they will take you on an additional bus to the starting point. You can also rent a bike, cycle along the river and then kayak back. The water is clean and shallow.

Other nearby kayaking facilities are HaGoshrim Kayaks from Kibbutz HaGoshrim. This offers a similar family route for 1-1½ hours and a challenging route without an instructor for 1¼ -2 hours. The phone number is 077 996 9248. This is the website.


There is also Jordan River Rafting Attractions adjacent to Kibbutz Gadot for a standard ¾ to 1½-hour family trip. They also offer accompanied, much longer, challenging white-water rafting for groups. Their phone number is 072 372 6527. This is their website.
