Camping at Northern Israel- glamping and free camping
The north of Israel is an ideal destination for hiking and freecamping. Mountains, streams, green hills and one famous lake-Kinneret. Mountain heights increase as you head further north.
Tiberias rises up from the shores of Lake Kineret (~200m below sea level)
Lower Galilee- Nazareth & Mt Tavor (~560m above sea level)
Upper Galilee- Safed & Meron. The top of Mt Meron is 1208 m high!
Mount Hermon- The northernmost point in Israel is also the highest one, reaching 2,200m in Israeli territory. Perfect for summer hiking and winter skiing.

Camping at the Sea of Galilee-Kineret
The Sea of Galilee is the lowest sweet water lake in the world. Dozens of beaches with breathtaking mountain views dot the lake. The most popular destination for Israeli campers, offering swimming, fishing, kite surfing, kyaking and other water sports.
Many beaches around the lake offer shaded camping areas with running water. Some charge per camper, but in most of them you pay only for parking (approx 70 NIS per 24H).
So carless backpackers  can camp here for free 🙂
When to go? All year round.

Winter can be rainy and most of the beaches are closed.

Summer is the high season so it can get really hot and full of Israeli campers.

Yet, it’s really worth it!!
