The Sea of Galilee is one of the most beautiful spots in Israel and is of historical and spiritual significance both to Judaism and Christianity. The city of Tiberias was the center of Jewish study in the Land of Israel for many years, and the Galilee was the primary location of Jesus’ ministry. An excellent way to see these important sites on your trip to Israel – and to enjoy some sunny recreation – is with a cruise on the Sea of Galilee.

Mount Bental was formed in a volcanic eruption which formed a scoria volcanic cone, the magma which tried to erupt from Mount Avital’s top could not do so and the pressure lead to an eruption of the western side of Mount Avital and of Mount Bental.
Mount Bental is covered with Quercus calliprinos trees and on its top there is an IDF stronghold which was built on an older Syrian stronghold which is an attraction point for visitors. The mountain top has a good view of the Syrian lands, Mount Hermon and the Golan Heights.
