The Green Card
A Pass to the National Parks and Reserves

The Israel Nature and National Parks Protection Authority offers a special tourist pass called the Green Card, which is valid for two weeks. There are two versions of the Green Card. For 70 NIS you can purchase a card that will afford you entry to six National Parks and Reserves. Or, for 102 NIS you can purchase a card that will provide unlimited entry. Both versions of the card are valid for two weeks and do not include the Masada cable car. Cards may be purchased at any of the parks or reserves. There are 54 National Parks and Reserves in Israel.

Park and reserve hours are as follows, winter 8 AM - 4 PM (Friday until 3 PM). Summer hours: 8 AM - 5 PM (Friday until 4 PM). Some locations are open until 6 PM during the summer. Check for holiday hours. For recorded information, you may call a toll free number in Israel, 1-800-546-666, or visit the Israel Nature and National Parks Protection Authority Web site.
