Israel's Best Promenades

This is a place holder image for bridge blog posts without an image selected.

Israel is scenic wonder, and some of the best ways to take in her unique beauty are by bike or foot. There are many trails throughout the Holy Land designed just for bicyclists or walkers – and a recent Times of Israel article highlights some of the best:

Schaniya Scenic Promenade

The first scent to hit your nostrils as you stroll along the Jewish National Fund’s Schaniya Scenic Promenade (tayelet nof schaniya) is the heady aroma of lavender. But that’s only at the beginning of this perfectly delightful jaunt. For the promenade, which stretches 800 meters from Schaniya to Manof in the lower Galilee, is lined with other fragrant herbal plants as well: rosemary, sage and thyme.

Worth a special trip to the area, the promenade is located in the middle of the Mount Schaniya Ridge and offers a fabulous view of Haifa Bay, the Carmel Mountains as they drop into the Sea and the Beit Netufa and Zebulun Valleys. Your walk also features beautiful Mediterranean rosebud, terebinth, fir, canary pine and strawberry trees. Scattered among the trees, bushes, and natural boulders are tables and chairs cleverly designed to make them almost indistinguishable from the rest of the stunning landscape.
