    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A perfect spot for a picnic or just to relax in the refreshing waters of the cool Jordan River.

    Located down the main road from town of Had Nes, northern point above Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee).

    Gamla Nature Reserve

    by jadedmuse Written Jun 25, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is sort of a like a little "Masada" of the Galilee area. We walked the "Ancient Trail" which is about a half a mile, and not all that difficult. There's a special observation point overlooking Gamla Hill (see photo) and then the path goes beyond it toward the ancient town of Gamla. Gamla is famous because the residents supposedly revolted under the Romans, and jumped off the hill (like Masada).

    You'll find a lot of Judas trees and almond trees along the path and the slopes of the hills here. There are also a lot of animals such as foxes and boars, porcupines and gazelles - although we didn't spot any when we were there. It makes for a nice day trip from Tiberias or anywhere in the Lake Kinneret/Galilee area.

    Tabgha

    The Church of the First Feeding of the Multitude at Tabgha.

    This is the traditional site of the miracle of the Loaves and the Fishes - where Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish. The stone upon which the Master placed the bread became an altar. The many pilgrims to this site broke off pieces of it as a cure for their ailments.

    The Yigal Alon Center - Museum & Educational Cente

    by Jackiekg Written May 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was here whilst attending a folk festival on the Kibbutz and did not have time to see too much of the museum. It is on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and out side the building are many very interesting sculptures.
    In the Museum is The Ancient Galilee Boat, which was discovered in 1986 by two brothers from Kibbutz Ginosar. Based on several criteria the Galilee Boat is firmly dated to the first centuries BCE-CE.
    There is also a hall displaying photographs from the Palmach.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jacob's Ladder is a two-day folk music festival, this year held on Kibbutz Ginosar on the shores of Lake Kinneret. This year's artists (too long a list to mention) included Black Velvet - Israel's verteran Irish Band, Orrin Star - USA-Brooklyn Bluegrass Maestro; award winning guitar, banjo and madolin player, Jug O'Punch - traditional Scottish, English, Irish and American folk songs and HaCana'anim (these guys are going to the top!) - Africa, South America, Switzerland, The Old West. A top folk singer here, Sandy Cash - sung great songs and lots were really funny.
    There were lots for kids to do - the sea, handicrafts etc. (see my travelogue).
    I recommend anybody coming here around this period next year, check this festival out.

    Sailing on the Sea of Galilee

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you come to Tiberias you simply must go for a ride on one of the 'Jesus Boats' as they're lovingly called. Generally rides are for half an hour on up and they start in cost at 30 Shekels a person.

    The Beach

    No visitor to Tiberias miss a visit to the Kinneret. The lake is about 200 metres below sea level and is surrounded by the Galilee mountains on the west and the Golan heights on the east.

    The Citadel

    It's a nice walk up the hill from the lake to the citadel. On the way you can see the old, black stone, houses and get views of the lake.
