PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR TRANSPORT
Join Finjan for a full moon, night-hike over the Sea of Galilee and a morning swim at Yardenit along the Jordan River. Beautiful moonlit landscapes over northern Israel, and the tranquil, picturesque waters of the Jordan are sure to make this the perfect summer outing.
We will hike on the Israel National Trail from above the Sea of Galilee and descend upon the pristine waters of the Jordan River. Throughout the evening, we will be blessed with stunning views of northern Israel that include the Sea of Galilee, Golan Heights and the Upper Galilee. Due to the rainy winter, the Sea of Galilee is extra plentiful.
The plan is to meet at 21:00 at the given location (self arrival or with transport from Tel Aviv). After transferring some of the cars to the end point of the trail, we will begin the hike under the moonlight of the Galilee and head through the Swiss Forest and a couple of hours to relax before sunrise. From there, we will make the descent towards the Jordan River via the Kinneret Farm and early Zionist enclaves surrounding the area.
Besides taking in the area’s natural beauty, we will get a better understanding of the region’s special history.
For those that want to continue in the area, we recommend heading to Kursi Beach for a nice quiet day on the Sea of Galilee.
*** There may be an optional meetup to see the sunset over the Sea of Galilee from a local lookout point for those that are interested prior to the hike***
