In our tiny country, even our lake is referred to as a sea. The Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee, has a rich history with many sites both ancient and modern that are well worth a visit.

You could easily spend two days exploring the eastern side of the Kinneret. Start in the northeastern corner at the Majrase–Betiha (Beit Tzaida Valley) Nature Reserve, where two of the Golan’s major streams form a delta close to their meeting with the Kinneret.
