Tiberias, the largest city near the Sea of Galilee in Israel, is nothing spectacular in itself, but it’s there that you can take in the Tiberias Hot Springs. These ancient spring fed pools of water are home to Turkish baths, massages, mud treatments, and other spa offerings. The area also has tons of hiking and biking trails.
A hot spot in Upper Galilee is Rob Roy’s Canoes, near the Kibbutz hotel Kinneret. This oasis is super relaxing, and you can hire a canoe for the lake or just relax under in the shade. Whether you fly and drive to this area of Israel or come by other means, it’s one of the most historic and Biblically important in the world. For an extreme view of the area, you can take a Jesus Boat (a wooden boat styled like those in the time of Jesus) on the lake or see the sea from above on the Switzerland forest and driving trail.
There are several area hotels in Israel, but the Kibbutzim North of Israel are some of the best. They include Nof Ginosar, Ein Gev Holiday Village, and Lavi. All these kibbutz hotels give you an amazing place to stay surrounded by some of Israel’s most popular attractions.
