It’s hard to imagine something more magical than hiking and horse riding through the Biblical back-country of the Galilee in Northern Israel. Our unique and unimaginably memorable one day tour follows a dramatic segment of the Jesus Trail at the breathtaking descent towards the Sea of Galilee. Split into two parts, this day will be half a day on horseback, and half a day on foot.
