Nazareth and Tiberias are the popular base areas to start a multi day tour or Pilgrimage into Northern Israel and if you are coming from Tiberias, Kinneret is just a 20 kilometer and 25 minute drive south and if coming from Nazareth, the drive is about 46 kilometers and 50 minutes away (but you would pass by other pilgrimage sites like Mount Carmel, Mount Tabor or Kafr Kana before going to Yardenit in Kinneret as after your Jordan River Baptism, you would then proceed to the Northern Part of Sea o Galilee into Capernaum, Tabgha and Mount of Beatitudes and finally ride a Jesus Boat along the Sea of Galilee.
Yardenit is located at the bank of the Jordan River near Kibbutz Kinneret on the southwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee (Or the Kinneret Lake). It is located in the north of the Jordan Valley, 6 kilometers southern of Tiberias and 28 km from Nazareth. We got to Yardenit by bus. It took us half an hour.
