Attractions and activities all year round

Nir Ezion Resort is situated within the Carmel Forest, next to an enchanting nature reserve and overlooking the famous Artists' Village of Ein Hod.
Thanks to its unique location, our guests can enjoy diverse activities, points of interest and attractions, within walking distance of the hotel, or just a few minutes' drive away.
The hotel is an ideal starting point for trips and tours throughout the region. As you drive away from the hotel, you’ll be able to marvel at the beautiful landscapes of the Carmel Forest that surround us on all sides.
It would be our pleasure to recommend trips and tours most suited to you, from family-oriented hiking trails and guided tours to challenging walks for advanced hikers.
We’d recommend a number of attractions a short drive away from the hotel: the cities of Haifa, Acre and Nahariya to the north, Zichron Yaakov and Hadera to the south, the Ein Hod Artist Colony, the Atlit fortress and the Mediterranean beaches to the west, and the Druze villages, Beit Shearim National Park, and the Muhraka site to the east.
