Eco tourism has been spreading all over the Middle East, with more and more professionals in the hospitality industry becoming aware of the demand for more sustainable travel. Generally eco touristic options involve sustainable facilities, seeing wildlife, or staying at accommodations situated in a remote natural location (such as a nature reserve). But sometimes eco tourism destinations mean that they encourage greener forms of transportation, such as cycling. Such is the case with HooHa Cyclists’ House in northern Israel, a hotel that specializes in catering to bikers.
Situated in Kfar Tavor, a picturesque village surrounded by beautiful landscapes, HooHa is in the center of an ideal area for undertaking some cycling outings.
HooHa really takes the needs of cyclists into consideration, and offers a variety of services that is unique. This is probably due to the fact that Hadas and Dror, the founders of the hotel, are avid cyclists themselves who personally pedaled over 2500 kilometers together in New Zealand.
Starting from the morning buffet (which is stocked with a special early breakfast for cyclists), the services also include special massages given by a professional team, a bike shed, road and off-road bikes for rental, and transport to and from course starting and end points.
The hotel offers a variety of biking/accommodation packages, based on how much cycling a guest wishes to do.
