The Galilee is one of Israel’s most lush and tropical environments with incredible mountainous scenery and breathtaking views of the famous “Sea of Galilee”. Most visitors comment that it’s easy to feel as if you are in biblical times when you visit the area where Jesus spent most of his life.
The abundance of water and the fertile soil in the Galilee’s valleys have kept the region consistently populated since ancient times. Today the concentration of biblical sites and the extraordinary natural beauty with scenic landscapes are reasons why Christians from all over the world love to visit the Galilee.
