Haifa Shore Excursion

Discover the beautiful North of Israel from the Haifa Port


Haifa Shore Excursions

The most popular itinerary from the port of Haifa is the full day tour to the Biblical Galilee.


There are 2 main routes to consider:  The Christian focused itinerary and the Jewish oriented route.  You can travel with your own private party or you can join the semi-private or small group tours.  Regardless of which option you choose, you will be picked up right from the port and safely returned back to the port in time for departure.



On the Christian Northern Israel tour you can experience for yourself the historic locations and stunning scenery of the places where Jesus lived, preached and performed his miracles. 


Enjoy a picturesque drive from Haifa to the top of Mount Carmel for a panoramic view over the Haifa bay and the famous Baha'i Gardens. Next, travel along the plains of Armageddon to Nazareth - the place where Jesus spent his early years.

In Nazareth, explore the amazing Basilica of the Annunciation, one of Christianity's most revered shrines and largest church in the Middle East.  A remarkable 170-foot- high cupola that rises high above the upper church adds to the Basilica's grandeur and allows the interior to be illuminated with natural light.

Next, travel through Cana, the place where Jesus performed his first miracle of turning water into wine. Then onwards to Tabgha, the site of the miracle of loaves and fish. Visit the beautiful Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus preached the famous Sermon on the Mount. Traveling on, visit Capernaum, located on the beautiful shores of the Sea of Galilee, considered the center of Jesus' ministry while he was living in this area. During your visit, you will see the ruins of an ancient synagogue where an impressive mosaic floor was recently discovered.

Continuing along the panoramic seashore you will arrive to the Yardenit baptismal site where the River Jordan separates from the Sea of Galilee. In this naturally scenic and symbolic setting, pilgrims from around the world come to perform baptismal ceremonies. On your relaxing ride back to the pier in Haifa, you will view Mount Tabor, the traditional site of the Transfiguration where Jesus appeared to his disciples in radiant light while speaking with Moses and Elijah.


On this day trip you will see Nazareth, Cana, Tabgha, Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum, Sea of Galilee, Yardenit Baptismal Site, and the Haifa Bay and Baha'i Gardens.


On the Jewish focused itinerary, you will start with a visit to the Roman city of Acre (Akko) for a walk in the Crusader conquered old town.  Walk within the old city walls and browse the stalls in the Arab souk.  Next its onwards to the Jewish city of Safed (Tsfat in Hebrew) to visit historical synagogues, cobblestone streets, and the famous Artists' colony located in this mystic town at the top of the mountain.  Safed is the world center to the mystic Kabala.  From Safed it is downwards towards Rosh Pina to visit modern Art Galleries in the narrow cobblestone alleyways (time permitting).  You will drive via the Sea of Galilee with its fantastic views to the Golan Heights to visit a Kibbutz and learn about the communal lifestyle and traditions of this Israeli concept. You will end the day at Mount Carmel to see the sunset over the Haifa Bay and the Baha'i Gardens.


It is also possible to visit Jerusalem from the port of Haifa but if you will also be docking in Ashdod it is recommended to visit Jerusalem from Ashdod to reduce the drive times to and from the port.
