The Galilee is not a large region; in fact a mere 80 miles separate its northern border-the peak of Mount Hermon from its southern most boundaries along the Jezreel Plain, the site of biblical Armageddon! Its eastern reaches the far edge of the Golan plateau, lie only 50 miles from the Mediterranean Sea in the west. It is only a one hour drive from one end of the Galilee to the other and it is also a short hop from major attractions all around Israel: a two hour drive to Tel Aviv, under three hours to Jerusalem or the Dead Sea.
Imagine taking in the lush green environment around you as you sit in the shade of an ancient olive tree, the rolling mountains, the beautiful sea and the relaxing spa’s, a place to bask in the sun on a quite beach, or walk along a cobblestone lane still echoing with footsteps of history. Its mystical atmosphere takes the visitor far away from the frantic world we live in today.
