AUTUMN 2019

COME AND ENJOY THE AUTUMN SPIRIT IN THE WESTERN GALILEE

The Northern winds are coming in, whispering Autumn is coming and the winter is soon to follow.
This is the same wind every year that reminds us that these are times of change. It is a reminder to make peace before the winter comes, to ask for forgiveness, bring more light and love into our world and pray for all we wish for this upcoming year.
For all you travelers it is an opportunity to go deeper into the Western Galilee experience.
You can enjoy workshops, tours and art work with that special touch of meeting the people behind each and every business. Winter tourism is a very interesting aspect of tourism, And we would love to have you here and love the Western Galilee in the winter, as we do.
Among locals- Winter has the Galilee at it’s best.

We have a great winter planned out for you and we do hope you will join us.
For those of you celebrating Rosh Hashana - we wish you and yours a wonderful new year!

PLACES TO GO

We know sometimes the independent travelers like to stay independent, but we do warmly recommend to visit unknown places in the area. So we have created various day tours, which you can use to plan a day’s trip on your own.

IN THE FORTRESS’S NEIGHBORHOOD - DAY TOUR

We have set up a route throughout the Western Galilee suitable for the whole family.

1. YEHIAM FORTRESS IN KIBBUTZ YEHIAM

A tour of an ancient fortress in the mountains promises a special experience and amazing views, a wonderful viewpoint from the ancient guard tower. The foundations of Yehiam fortress were built 1000 years ago! The fortress was a farm initially, during the Crusades. Later, it was sold to a German Crusade order that fortified it into a fortress guarding the city of Akko, the main Crusaders city at that time. After the Crusaders were defeated by the Muslims (1291), the fortress was destroyed and remained in ruins for hundreds of years.
