The Low-Down
What could be more inspiring than walking in the footsteps of Jesus? Imagine spending 4 or 5 days wandering from Nazareth to Capernaum along a trail that provides historical and biblical points of interest along the entire route. The trail is 38 miles long with no appreciable elevation to worry about. It can be done as a village to village trek or a tent-as-you-go expedition: plenty of exercise for the body, mind, and spirit on this trail. All the information you need to include travel, accommodations, and a guide book can be found online at JesusTrail.com.

Cable car ride up to Manara Cliffs for an amazing view over Northern Israel. Try kayaking in the cool & refreshing Snir River (Hatzbani Stream). Take a walk in the Dan Nature Reserve(2 hours - easy walk). Book an excursion via horseback or ATV, many companies offer them.
