1 Day - Jewish orientated Galilee Walking Tour
We start the day with a visit of the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the founder of the Kabala. After visiting this site and learning about "Rashbi" in the past and present day, we begin a 2-hour-hike in Nachal Amud. Nachal Amud has many springs, fruit orchards, rare water-plants, and water-powered wool-hammers that served the Jews who settled in Safed - center of Jewish Kabbalah. We drive to Safed and visit its many Synagogues, whilst absorbing its deeply spiritual atmosphere and listening to the mystical stories and legends surrounding the town. Drive to the ancient Arbel Synagogue, dating back to the Talmudic Period. After a short drive through the modern Moshav Arbel, we reach the edge of the Arbel-Cliff, overlooking the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights. This view here is at its best towards sunset. We make our way down the Arbel Cliff, where the rebelling Galilean Jews made their stronghold against King Herod the Great. We end our tour with views of the Daher el Omar Castle in the caves of the Arbel Cliff. Back to our vehicle and return to hotel.
