Galilee, Israel

Covering one-third of Israel, Galilee is one of Israel's most beautiful regions. Characterized by Tuscan-like rolling hills, lush landscapes, quaint rural villages, incredible wildlife, and impressive historic and religious sites, Lightfoot Travel’s experts can arrange a luxury holiday to show you another side of this fascinating country.

At its heart is the Sea of Galilee, Israel’s largest freshwater lake, where Jesus is believed to have walked on water. Sail on a traditional boat, explore the ruins of ancient settlements around its shores, and stop at Tiberias to bathe in natural hot springs.

Nazareth in Lower Galilee, the birthplace of Jesus, is brimming with biblical history, home to one of Israel’s most sophisticated dining scenes, and surrounded by beautiful hiking routes. In Upper Galilee, the ancient city of Safed is steeped in Kabbalah mysticism, while the Hula Valley is a birdwatcher’s paradise.

Western Galilee stretches to the Mediterranean coastline and includes the beautiful city of Haifa and Crusader port of Akko.
