This seven day tour will take you to the well known sites of the Galilee, mentioned in the Old and New Testament. From Mt. Carmel to the sea of Galilee; from First Kings to the Gospel of John; from Elijah & Deborah to Jesus of Nazareth. Ride through the villages of the region, some of them places of pilgrimage for the past two thousand years.​


Day 6

Old Synagogue at Capernaum
Sea of Galilee

The Eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, Kursi and Capernaum.
Approx. 40 Km.

Follow the bike path northeast which will eventually take you all around the lake. Cycle north to Kursi, with the water on your left and the mountains of the Golan on your right. Visit the ancient church marking the Miracle of the Swine (Matt. 8:32), and head north. 
Cross the river Jordan, pouring into the Sea of Galilee at Bethsaida where Jesus cured the blind (Matt 11:21). You will eventually reach Capernaum on the northern shore of the Lake. This historical location, mentioned several times in the Bible (Luke 4:31, Matt. 4:13, 8:5), is marked by several churches of different denominations commemorating the many events that took place here in the life of Jesus. 
From there, head to one of the many optional lodging sites on the north shore of the lake.
