Sea of Galilee, Tiberias

(4.6/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Sea of Galilee part of your personalized Tiberias itinerary using our Tiberias trip generator.

  • Take one of the many "Jesus Boats" for a ride on the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus walked on water and made Simon called Peter and Andrew Fishers of Men. Really inspirational.  more »
  • When I first saw the Lake, I understood not that the Apostles have been sitting here in agony in a small boat, as it stormed. A day later with a boat on the Lake and Yes, it can be a lot of ghosts. Really hard winds coming from the hills around it. A beautiful Lake with an impressive history of faith.
