Viker Lookout Point

The Viker Lookout Point ( in hebrew מצפה ויקר) is a large shaded terrace that overlooks the Mishmar Hasharon Reservoir. This location is a great place for viewing the bird migration that happens in Israel in the months of October and November. Thousands of Pelicans stop here on their way from Europe to Africa to find fish in the reservior. Around the reservoir is an ornamental garden with flowers and lots of grassy areas. From the garden there is a paved path that leads upwards to the lookout point. The Vikor Lookout Point can be combined with Agmon Hefer to make a full day of bird viewing

Note: The road to the lookout point can be bumpy and quite muddy in the winter after rain. It is generally suitable for all vehicles
