Galilee Vacation Packages by TrueTrips

The ancient and holy lands of Galilee and the now famed Sea of Galillee extend from Mount Carmel all the way to Mount Hermo. Holding the title of the lowest freshwater lake on Earth at 215 meters (705 ft) below sea level, the Sea of Galilee is nourished from the River Jordan and various underground fresh water springs. Known by many names throughout history, the Sea of Galilee is where – according to the New Testament - Jesus first encountered two of his disciples Peter and Andrew, and where he performed several miracles, such as walking on water, calming the storm and the feeding of the 5,000 with five loaves and two fish. The Sea of Galilee has not only become a place of pilgrimage for Christians of all denominations, but it has also become a place to relax and wind down from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
