Sea of Galilee, Tiberias

4.5
#1 of 98 in Nature in Israel
A large freshwater lake situated on a northern part of the Israeli-Jordanian border, Sea of Galilee offers visitors scenic hiking, swimming, and boating opportunities. Featured prominently in ancient Jewish and Christian scripture, the sea served as the site of much of Jesus Christ's ministry in the Gospels. Today the lake provides a source of fresh water to Israeli homes and attracts flocks of visitors to its shores. Taste fresh fish at restaurants on the lake's edge, walk along the pier in Tiberias, or board a boat for a tour from the water. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Tiberias trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Magnificent and mesmerizing to go on boat and rounding it. Sometimes you can see or greet by the local volunteers gathering there. The views are awesome and groups of pilgrims and tourists from many countries visiting and conversation might started with drinks as well.
  • See the Sea of Galilee. And try to board a boat to float along the sea and dance with your friends with Jewish Christian songs. Reminisce how Jesus walk there to save one of His Apostle Peter drowning because his faith is not enough to make him float on the sea of Galilee.
  • And absolutely moving experience sailing on the Waters of Galilee. A must start for any church group to put into their schedule whenever they're making a trip to Israel. To look upon the shoreline and think of all the amazing things that have happened is indescribable and you must experienced it once in your life. It is worth dealing with the all kosher food and cheap hotels.
  • Wonderful atmosphere for walking or cycling, very scenic. Be sure to take some picnic to enjoy by the water.
  • I experienced an emotional peak as I contemplated all the biblical happenings on and around this lake. Most beautiful and inspiring scenery. Deeply touched and inspired.
