This is an Israel National Parks site. I would highly recommend going here first to orient yourself to the area. On a clear day, you can see Mount Hermon, and the Golan and all of the sites where Jesus taught. You can even hike to...More

Going up here gives an unparalleled view of the whole of the Sea of Galilee. Great point for giving an overview of the area that was the focal point for Jesus's ministry. There's good interpretation and signage; restrooms and refreshments at the car park.

It is something of a trek to the top; not good for anyone who has difficulty walking or climbing. But, for those who do walk up, the reward of the site is great.

Looking over the Sea of Galilee at Kinneret Lookout, it’s a must visit if you’re in Tiberias, I personally don’t think it’s as dangerous as what some reviewers made it up to be; children aplenty from 4 make it up and down the slopes. Hike...More

I had heard about this park from previous visitors, but you have to see it to believe it. The views from the top of the cliffs of Arbel are some of the most fantastic in Israel. This is particularly true when one considers the significance...More

Our guide took us up to the park. It was an uphill climb but worth it. From the top of the cliff we saw the magnificent view of the valley and the Sea of Galilee. Although we didn’t stay long because the sun was setting,...More
