Israel Trail 9th Segment: Arbel Mountain to Tiberias
Sunday, November 27th: Join us on our epic journey along the Israel Trail. This full day adventure will cover the 9th section, iconic Arbel Mountain and Tiberias.
We’ll begin the 12 kilometer journey with a walk towards the bottom of the Arbel Cliff, where we’ll stop for a cup of hot coffee before we begin the climb. The view from Arbel mountain is known as one of the most beautiful in the entire Galilee region. We’ll tackle the steep climb slowly, climbing the last couple of meters on hand holds to the very top. Then, we’ll stop to take in the gorgeous views of the Sea of Galilee before continuing on our way, past the town of Masada and towards the city of Tiberias. The last couple of kilometers will take us through the seaside city of Tiberias. We’ll end the day on the edge of a beautiful forest, with a glass of wine and some snacks to celebrate our completion of the 9th segment of the Israel Trail!

My name is Ben Zaltzman, I’m a tour guide and a hiker in Israel who leads people on trails around the country.
I fell in love with nature at a young age.
While exploring the wide open spaces of nature, I came to know that it was the place where I belong.
A question I ask during our journeys is, “What happens to me in nature?”
I found secret hiking trails, discovered magical corners in the country, and have been guiding others through my experiences.
The trips I lead are about nature connection, the power of being in nature, and the changing environment.
I’m an expert at long-distance hikes. I hiked for 6 month along the Pacific Crest Trail in the US, and have gone on lots of other journeys in Israel and abroad.
