Discover Galilee, Jerusalem by bike

Travellers and sport enthusiasts traveling to Israel can now experience the Christian holy sites in the Galilee and Jerusalem by taking one of the new “Biking the Path of Jesus” tours. The 12-mile biking routes are available in two-day or week-long tours and depart from destinations in northern Israel, including Nazareth, the town of Jesus’ birth, and travel through Mt. Carmel, Mt. Gilboa and Mt. Tabor to the rolling hills and olive groves surrounding Kibbutz Lavi. The two-day tour will leave from Kibbutz Lavi and travel through the Horns of Hattin fort to the Druze pilgrimage sight of Nebi Swe’be, and onto the Arbel Valley, Sea of Galilee and Capernaum. And for advanced cyclists, the week-long tour travels from Mt. Hermon in the north to Mt. Carmel near Haifa and through Caesarea, Jerusalem and Masada. Oded Grofman, consul for tourism, Israel Government Tourist Office – Canada, said: “The new bike tours around the Galilee are a new and innovative way to experience Christian holy sites in Israel and will provide some additional excitement for travellers arriving in the Holy Land this year.” The tours are available for beginner to mid-level riders and suitable for children, ages 13 and above.
