From Capernaum to the Arik Bridge

Walking Tour
From Capernaum to the Arik Bridge
  • A route that begins around the Sea of Galilee and continues along the banks of the Jordan River as it joins the lake.
Route: 

From the entrance gateway to the Capernaum National Park we shall descend towards the floating jetty, which adapts itself to the changing water levels of the lake, and we will begin walking along the Sea of Galilee Trail marked in purple, direction east. After around 400 meters the path crosses the dry riverbed of the Korazim Stream and joins a dirt road, south of which lies the Sea of Galilee and north of which is a shady thicket of eucalyptus trees.

We will pass the Sapirit Shore and around 2 kms after beginning the trail the shoreline curves forming the beautifully scenic Amnon Bay. It is at this point that the Sea of Galilee Trail recorded one of its first successes in opening up the shores of the Sea of Galilee to the public.

The trail leads us along a promenade that separates the vacation resort from the lake and departs this area through eucalyptus and jujube tress towards the Arik Bridge which is less than 2 kms away. Without noticing we are no longer walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee but on the bank of the Jordan Lagoon.
