Situated amongst the hills of northern Israel, the Galilee has preserved much of its pastoral beauty since biblical times. This mountainous region is divided into two parts — Upper Galilee to the north and Lower Galilee to the south.
The Galilee region is one of Israel’s predominant tourism centers. Tiberias, in the Lower Galilee, offers richly-textured cultural interests, awesome attractions, and vibrant excursions. From natural hot springs and alligator farms, to meditative spa retreats that welcome visitors from throughout the world, there is a variety of accommodations, diverse eating options, and water sports.
Make sure you traverse nature trails, visit historical sites, and enjoy warm and inviting Israeli hospitality on the Sea of Galilee.
Ancient cities in this region including Capernaum, Magdala, Cana, Nazareth, and others are closely linked with Jesus and early Christians.
The Upper Galilee is the perfect spot for outdoor adventure: horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, rappelling, birdwatching, fishing, and skiing. The culture scene here is also plentiful with museums, music festivals, art galleries, sculpture parks, and folk dancing.
With a vast array of sites, natural beauty, and breathtaking landscapes, The Galilee is truly one-of-a-kind in one-of-the-oldest tourism capitals in the world!
