Northern Israel Package (4-Day Tour)

The north of Israel offers a completely different experience than the rest of the country: lush green forests, quiet villages, mountains and beaches, ancient ruins, and holy sites of at least five different religions. There are so many great places to visit, which is why we’re offering a four-day Northern Israel Package, so you can make the most of the Galilee, the Golan Heights and the rest of the north.

Our four days of adventure begin and end in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, and you can choose to start in one city and finish in the other if you wish. We drive up along the Mediterranean coast for a couple of hours before arriving in Nazareth, the heart of the Galilee and the North, famous both for its association with Jesus, and for its vibrant and colorful marketplaces and food stalls today. You’ll join a great guided tour of Nazareth on the final day of your package, but for now it’s time to explore the beautiful Inn, and the nearby markets and sites. You’ll spend the next three nights in this beautiful city, with an interesting nightlife and a variety of eating options.

Spend each of your nights in the magical Fauzi Azar Inn, where you will enjoy a delicious and rich Middle Eastern breakfast daily before embarking on your tours. Relax in the beautiful Arab mansion, tasting wonderful local cakes, whilst you can spend time in the large common areas under the magnificent ceiling artwork.

On the second day, we’ll go up to the Golan Heights, an area overlooking the Galilee and bordering on Syria. We leave Nazareth in the morning and move on towards Capernaum, a village on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus preached his famous Sermon on the Mount. We move on to the Banias nature park, where waterfalls gush from a fantastic spring. Next up is a visit to a local winery, one of Israel’s finest, where we’ll taste their latest wines. We carry on towards the frontier, going up Mount Bental and looking out over the Israeli and Syrian landscapes, with time for a quick bite to eat. We’ll stop by the Sea of Galilee again on the way back to Nazareth.

For those that choose to, there is also an option on Tuesday to take a Kayaking tour on the Sea of Galilee instead. This is a full-day tour visiting the important religious sites in the area such as Capernaum and Tabgha and includes a day of kayaking, full guiding, as well as breakfast and lunch.

The third day consists of the western side of the Galilee, including Haifa, Acre and Rosh Hanikra. We leave Nazareth and stop nearby at Mount Precipice, with beautiful panoramic views of the region. We’ll drive through beautiful Mediterranean landscapes filled with both wineries and olive groves, as we head over to Haifa. Haifa is Israel’s third largest town, and the holy city of the Baha’i faith. We will visit the Baha’i temple at the top of Mount Carmel, and explore the striking gardens planted along the hillside. Next, we’ll visit the beautiful old city of Acre, with its crusader fortresses, 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.

The final day is back to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. After spending the morning on a guided tour of Nazareth, we’ll leave for the last time in the afternoon, and head west towards the coast. We arrive back in the early evening to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
