  • The Arbel offers great views (also for Sunrise) on the sea of Galilee. Is a National Park and costs according to admission. Many walks are possible and vary according to time and difficulty. The descent into the Pigeon Valley (Jesus came from Nazareth down at the sea of Galilee) requires durability. On foot, you can discover some great sites from here and meet exciting things (Crusaders, Saladin, horns of Hattin, Johannes ackee, water source Arbel, caves, etc.). Definitely a worth - visit requires but little planning and depending on the hike you should calculate enough time.
