Writers at Israel21c tell us why you should visit Israel’s national lake while nature is in full bloom:

Springtime is perfect in the Kinneret region, not only temperature-wise but also scenery-wise, with wildflowers in full bloom and greenery at its greenest. What better way to admire it than by foot?

One top option for a spring nature hike is the Jesus Trail, a 40-mile trek from Nazareth to Capernaum on Lake Kinneret’s shores. Rather than schlepping the whole trail, you can focus on its lakeside parts.

The path takes you through stunning scenery on Mount Tabor, the beautiful Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes, peaceful greenery on Mount of the Beatitudes and the ancient village of Capernaum, which served as Jesus’ home base in northern Israel.

Whatever parts of the trail you end up hiking, you’re guaranteed to enjoy some of Israel’s most breathtaking natural beauty spots and views, all at their freshest, colorful best.
