Panoramic Galilee & Golan Heights

DETAILS

    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Meal

Explore the heart of ethnically rich Galilee, enjoying many of its holiest, and most ancient sites, including a visit to Capernaum where Jesus spent his youth teaching the gentiles.


Starting off from the pier, you will begin driving inland through the Galilee, whose fertile valleys have been populated since ancient times. Today, the Galilee supports the greatest variety of ethnic communities in Israel, and this all-encompassing tour presents a wonderful look at its diversity and history.


While ascending the southern Golan Heights, you will pass Hamat Gader, an area known for its curative hot springs. Perched upon the border where Syria, Jordan and Israel meet, Hamat Gader offers breathtaking vistas of the beautiful surrounding valleys and the Sea of Galilee. You will then follow its shoreline north to Capernaum, which was the center of Jesus' ministry while he lived in the area. Here, you will see the remains of a 4th-century synagogue and enjoy a buffet lunch.


The early afternoon is devoted to driving through Tiberias, one of Judaism's holiest cities, and driving through a kibbutz, during which your guide will delve into their fascinating histories. Later, visit Yardenit, a sacred baptism site on the Jordan River.


Before returning to Haifa, you will drive through Cana, enjoying sweeping views over Nazareth, whose modern Basilica of the Annunciation rises prominently above the city. Cana holds its own special place in history as being the location where Jesus is thought to have turned water into wine.
