Location and Climate


The International Birdwatching Center of the 

Jordan Valley is located at Kibbutz Kfar Ruppin. 

Situated alongside the Jordan River, near the 

town of Beit Shean. it is ideally located near all 

of the excellent birding sites in northern Israel. 

The climate is Mediterranean and therefore 

generally mild. Very hot weather occurs late in 

June to early September when temperatures 

may reach above 40 degrees Celsius. 

During the winter months of November 

through March temperatures rarely fall below 5 c 

even at night (bananas grow here!). Rain seldom 

lasts more than one day during this time. This 

location combined with its mild climate offers 

great birdwatching opportunities all year round. 

For planning the timing of your trip see our 

review of birding highlights throughout the year.



Beit Shean may be reached from Tel Aviv via 

Afula along Route 71 or from Jerusalem by 

Route 90. There are buses (except Friday pm 

and Saturday), and service taxis operate 

between Tel Aviv, Afula and Beit Shean. Local 

transfer from Beit Shean is by bus or taxi. 

Persons intending to birdwatch farther afield 

than the kibbutz are advised to hire a car on 

arrival to Israel. Many good birding areas 

are to be found less than two hours drive from 

the kibbutz. A travel agent can usually arrange 

car hire beforehand and the vehicle made 

available for collection at the airport.

חוויה נפלאה-מומלץ בחום
בילינו סופ"ש בקיבוץ ומעבר לאירוח החוויה הגדולה היתה בטיולי הצפרות.לנכדים המצויידים במשקפות כגנרלים אמיצים, היתה החוויה נפלאה ומהנה. חן,חן למדריכה שהצליחה להביא את כל הזאטוטים לקשב והתעניינות בבעלי הכנף.מומלץ בחום.
