Full-Moon Hybrid Trek: Lower Galilee Adventure

Join Finjan on our seasonal hybrid hiking adventure: a moonlight, full-moon hike and a morning trek in the Lower Galilee capped off with some rope-swinging and swimming at Yardenit on the Jordan River.

Our excursion will begin at night (after taking transport from Tel Aviv) as we hike through the fields above the moonlit Yavne’el Valley until we reach Mitzpe Eilot where we will relax, nod-off and wait for the sunrise from a breathtaking vantage point above the Sea of Galilee & the Jordan River Valley.

From our high-ground at Mitzpe Eilot we will descend via the INT (Israel National Trail) through the beautiful and flowing Yavne’el Stream, with its many hidden springs.

Our next stop is Yardenit on the Jordan – the place where the Jordan River leaves the Sea of Galilee. Here we will relax by the river, enjoying the rope-swing and cooling off to get off the dust and sweat from the night before.

The bus will take us back to Tel Aviv where we should arrive around 15:00 in the afternoon.

LOGISTICS

As usual, we will meet at our pickup at Arlozorov (Tel Aviv Central Train Station) where we will board the Finjan bus and head to the north. After the hike, we will head back to Tel Aviv using our transport.
