Meeting Time:6:00

Completion Time: 20:00

Difficulty Level: Intermediate

Trip Type:Hiking


Join Finjan for a summer hike in Galilee through the green shaded forests and cool refreshing pools of the Kziv gorge.

Israel’s northwestern frontier is characterized by its deep river gorges, lush Mediterranean woodlands and the diversity of its countryside population. These elements make it the perfect destination for a year-round hiking destination and an authentic Galilean adventure.

Our route will combine the woodland forests of the Upper Galilee,  hiking through flowing water in the perennial, Kziv water-gorge,  and of course – a panoramic view looking out on the Crusader citadel of Montfort (the mountain fortress)

Throughout the day we will delve into the area’s population composition and how the area became an integral part of Israel’s northwestern corridor – situated just south of the Lebanese border.

This is a moderately difficult hike with some sharp descents and a final climb up from the gorge to the northern ridge-line of the gorge.

The hike is suited for anyone with the ability to hike for a full day who has even a bit of light-hiking experience. As long as you bring sturdy shoes and your swimming costume – you’ll be set!

(We also recommend bringing hiking sandals or water shoes if you don’t want your shoes to get wet at certain points)
