Owner description: The Hay-Bar on the Carmel is devoted to the raising of endangered and extinct animals of the region and possible re-introduction to the wild. The park maintains breeding cells of Persian fallow deer (Dama dama mesopotamica), roe deer (capreolus capreolus), as well as various types of vultures and other raptors, which are also part of the re-introduction and re-acclimatization program.

10 minutes by car away from Haifa city you find the big national park CARMEL FOREST. Ok, it is not as big like the USA parks, or as dense in trees as European forests, but it has a great number of attractions that can be combined in one long day tour. If you are a biker, the tour can be done by bike (rental bike is possible if done in advance). You can start the tour (if by car) at Haifa University, where many lookout points can be found. the landscape is 360 degrees and you can see up to the Lebanese border. Many marked walking routes can be found all over the national park, from easy/family walks up to the fitted for a 8 hours walk. Picnic areas and camping night places can be found as well. A visit to the druze villages is a must. Typical dressing can be seen and authentic food (oriental type) can be tasted. All the time the landscape will escort you during the trip. After tasting the food at the druze villages (Osfyia and Dalyat el Karmel), you continue with the car to reach the Muhraka monastery (closed on Sunday) that belongs to the Carmelite court. From the lookout terrace of the monastery, again a breathtaking landscape will finish our tour.
