Nature And Animals
The Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) is Israel's largest fresh-water lake - a prime tourist attraction as well as a vital water source. Its beaches offer water parks, campgrounds and accommodations, including hotels in the lakeside city of Tiberias. Birdwatchers love the Jordan Park (where the Jordan River runs into the lake) where you can also rent kayaks. The new Kinneret Trail for hikers surrounds the lake. For Christians, the lake is memorable for its pilgrimage sites like Capernaum and Tabgha, and the famed ancient Galilee boat is on display at lakeside Kibbutz Ginnosar.
