Full Description

Start off exploring Israel on our Coastal & Northern Israel 5 Day Experience Package, by immersing yourself in a unique coastal village which is truly off the beaten track, as well as a tour of an Israeli Kibbutz, and tours of the top sights in Israel’s north.

Israel’s north has much to offer to all travelers, and truly has a unique atmosphere and beauty. From forests, streams, small coastal villages, ancient ruins, mountains and beaches, through to holy sites for Muslims, Christians, Jews, Baha’i and Druze, your experience here will be truly memorable.

This great value package departs from both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. We travel along the coast to Kibbutz Maagan Michael, where we will tour the beautiful Kibbutz, where you will see fish pools, a small zoo, and the various facilities which keep this large communal society functioning, as well as hearing about the stories and lifestyles of those living there, directly from one of the local Kibbutz members. Following the tour, we’ll join the community for lunch in the Kibbutz communal dining room, before heading to Jisr az-Zarqa, a coastal village hosting the Juha Guesthouse.

After checking in, we will take a guided tour around the village, before you enjoy some free time at the beach or exploring yourself. In the evening we’ll enjoy a Bonfire and dinner at the beach, or a local home in the winter.

The next morning following breakfast, we will travel to the ancient ruins of Caesarea, now contained and preserved within a small National Park. Caesarea is an astoundingly well preserved and rebuilt Roman city, once a prosperous and significant administrative center. The former glory of this once great city can be felt by walking through the various ruins such as the amphitheater, Roman baths and port. We’ll have time to wander around the site, before departing for Nazareth.

Nazareth, in the heart of the Galilee, is famous both for its association with Jesus, and for its vibrant and colorful marketplaces and food stalls today. Spend your night in the magical Fauzi Azar Inn, where you can relax in the beautiful Arab mansion, tasting wonderful local cakes, or spend time in the large common areas under the magnificent ceiling artwork.

On Day 3, we’ll head to the Galilee and Golan regions. We will visit Capernaum, the town of Jesus childhood and the site of an ancient synagogue and a number of beautiful churches located on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Then it’s just a short drive to the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus once preached his Sermon on the Mount, and boasting almost 260 degree views of the Sea of Galilee and surround.

Our next stop will be the Banias Reserve, a national park holding both historical significant and extensive natural beauty. Will crystal clean streams from Mount Hermon running through the park, our hike in this Reserve will leave you with no doubt about why the region is arguable Israel’s most scenic.

The rest of the day will be spent tasting wine in a local winery, eating a delicious Arab-style lunch in a Druze village, and looking out from Mount Bental over the Israeli borders.

The following day our adventure continues, as we head to Haifa, Israel’s third largest city with a mixed Arabs and Jews population. With a peaceful atmosphere and streets lining the coastal hills, you’ll leave be left with a lasting impression. Not only does Haifa have a large Jewish and Arab population, but is also the Holy City of the Baha’i Faith, and hosts many of the important Bahai institutions and sites, including the beautiful Baha’i Gardens on Mount Carmel. We’ll have a great view of the Bahai Gardens before we leave for the crusader city of Acre, with its Templer fortress, ancient walls and beautiful mosques and marketplaces. Lastly, we’ll drive up to Rosh Hanikra, where the sea water has carved incredible caves into the cliffs, accessible only by cable car.
