      Travel north through the Lower Galilee to the mountainous Upper Galilee to visit the picturesque city of Safed, the highest city in Israel, with warm summers and cold, often snowy, winters.

       

      Safed is one of the four holy cities in Israel and has been a spiritual and kabala center since the 17th century. Visit the city's thriving and scenic artist's quarter dotted with galleries and artists studios, and wander through the ancient alleyways of the Jewish quarter with its hidden corners and beautiful ancient synagogues.

       
      Continue to the Tel Dan Nature Reserve - a wonderland of streams, a wild river and tall shady trees. The Dan river is the largest and most important source of the Jordan river, fed by the snow and rain of Mt. Hermon. Walk along the trail, crossing the stream and through the laurel, ash and buckthorne trees to a flour mill, that operated until 1948, and the ruins of a Canaanite city with the earliest constructed arch ever discovered.

       

      Proceed to the Banias, fed by a spring from Mt. Hermon and a second source of the Jordan River, and to the archeological site of Caesarea Philippi, associated with one of the miracles of Christ and his ministry. Walk along the trail that passes Roman and Crusader period sites, up to the waterfall - the most impressive cascade in Israel.

      After the Banias we proceed to Tel Faher (or Golani Lookout) a former Syrian outpost on the Golan Heights and the site of an intense battle during the Six Day War. Conquest of this outpost led to the liberation of the entire Golan heights. Visit the park commemorating the fallen of that battle.

      18;00- ends at a Kibbutz Guest House for dinner and overnight.

       

      Day 2 - Jeep Tour, Mt. Bental, Sea of Galilee holy sites, Nazareth

      Continue to Mt. Bental, at just over 1,000 meters above sea level, a remnant of the long extinct volcanoes which were the source of the grey basalt stone that characterizes the region, and now the site of a former army out-post. From the mountain top there is an amazing view of Syria, Mt. Hermon and the Valley of Tears - site of one of the fiercest battles waged during the Yom Kippur War. 
       

      Proceed to the Sea of Galilee - the largest freshwater lake in Israel and visit Capernaum which served as Jesus' home base during his ministry in the Galilee. Continue to Tabgha on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, site of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes, and where Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection and the Mt. of Beatitudes, the traditional site of the Sermon on the Mount.

       

      Our final stop is Nazareth the childhood home of Jesus, as
