Day 1

 
Katzrin
Gamla
Bethsaida
Sea of Galilee

Beginning your tour in the north, visit the Talmudic Village of Katsrin on the Golan Heights and an organic farm, using age old traditional methods of farming and livestock management. (To visit the farm, please call 04-696-2434).  

 

Drive to Israel’s eastern frontier, Alonei Habashan, to view the wind turbines used as an alternative source of energy.  

 

Continue to Gamla Nature Reserve, with its host of animals and many well-preserved and dramatic remnants of the city among the first to revolt against Rome. The ruins are at the end of a hearty hour’s hike, and also visible from a lookout, nearby which are also the ruins of a Byzantine village. The reserve boasts a phenomenal concentration of vultures and a beautiful waterfall. 

 

Proceed to the Yehudiya Forest Nature Reserve's rivers, natural pools, and waterfalls. The 16,500-acre reserve is shaped like an outstretched hand: the palm is the Bethsaida Valley, and each finger represents a river with rushing water and waterfalls. The reserve is 400 meters above sea level at its highest point and gently slopes down toward the Sea of Galilee.
