Israel - Northern Israel

The Galilee, pronounced Galil in Hebrew, stretches from the Mediterranean to the harp-shaped Sea of Galilee and River Jordan.

Here on Mount Gilboa is where King Saul and his son, Jonathan, died in battle against the Philistines and where Deborah killed Sisera.

The restoration of the Jewish homeland began in 1880, centred in Galilee, and in the subsequent 130 years, the much-neglected landscape of olive trees has been transformed into one of the most fertile areas in the world.

Discover dozens of kibbutzim and independently owned farms, feeding not only Israelis but produce is flown daily to the grocery stores and flower markets of Europe. Take time out to visit some of Israel’s famous 300 vineyards and sample award-winning wines.
