Our Safed and Golan Heights Day Tour will infuse your time in Israel with some northern beauty. From the heights of Mount Bental at the Syrian border to the winding blue alleyways of the holy city of Safed (Tzfat), this tour is filled with breathtaking mountainous nature and fascinating history, and is sure to be a day you won’t soon forget.

After being picked up in Tiberias, you’ll begin your day by touring the town of Katzrin, which is known in Israel as the “capital of the Golan”. You’ll tour the Talmudic Village, which contains archaeological finds and reconstructions from the Bronze Age Jewish village of Katzrin. Next you’ll ascend to the Gamla nature reserve, with its lush green hills and incredible history of Jewish rebellion against Roman conquerors. Continue closer to the Syrian border to the Mount Bental lookout point. Feel the mystical winds that come with the panoramic view of so much Jewish history. You’ll spend your afternoon in the one-of-a-kind ancient city of Safed, which is the birthplace of Kabbalah, or Jewish Mysticism. After lunch where you’ll sample organic, locally-made cheeses known as ‘Tzfat Cheese’, get to know the Safed Old City intimately. Learn all about the history of Kabbalah, Jewish Sages, and the countless miracles and Jewish legends that were born in Safed. Depending on the time of year, witness a spectacular sunset over Mount Meron before departing to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in the evening.

This Safed and Golan Heights day tour is perfect for travelers looking to go off the beaten path and see ancient Jewish history with their own eyes. The tour runs every Wednesday with guaranteed departures. Reserve your spot today!
