Create an itinerary including Sea of Galilee
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.

  • Peaceful place. Clean water with true history. The restaurants around will sell you fried tilapia. It is 25$ minimum just for the fish and fries. Drinks and desserts are separate.
  • An experience that is unique and the feeling of holiness going into your soul that’s coming from the sea. A magical one.
