Join Finjan for a Galilean hiking adventure deep into the Kziv River Gorge and above the towering Montfort crusader castle
Israel’s northwestern frontier is characterized by its deep river gorges, lush Mediterranean woodlands and the diversity of its countryside population. These elements make it the perfect destination for a year-round hiking destination and a true Galilean adventure.
Our route will combine the woodland forests of the Upper Galilee, hiking through flowing water in the perennial Kziv water-gorge, meeting the famous ‘Man in the Wall’ and of course – a panoramic view looking out on the Crusader citadel of Montfort (the mountain fortress)
Throughout the day we will delve into the area’s population composition and how the area became an integral part of Israel’s northwestern corridor – situated just south of the Lebanese border.
This is a moderately difficult hike with some sharp descents and a final climb up from the gorge to the northern ridge-line of the gorge. The hike is suited for anyone with the ability to hike for a full day who has even a bit of light-hiking experience. As long as you bring sturdy shoes and your swimming costume – you’ll be set!
(We also recommend bringing hiking sandals or water shoes if you don’t want your shoes to get wet at certain points)
Early-bird discounted tickets will be available on a first-come first-serve basis for a limited time at 169.50 NIS.
Standard-priced tickets will be sold at 189.50 NIS once the early-bird discount runs out.
(Full transport to and from Tel Aviv is provided by Finjan with pickup points along the way on Route 2 heading north)
