Yam l’Yam Hiking

Yam l’Yam is the most beautiful trek in Israel. It crosses the whole width of the country, starting in the western Galilee, climbing through Nahal K’ziv to the peak of Mt. Meron, the second-highest mountain in Israel from Achziv Beach on the Mediterranean Sea across Israel to Chof (beach) Kinneret – the Sea of Galilee. As you walk around the summit, you have a 360o view of northern Israel, Lebanon, and Jordan. The trail then goes down Nahal Amud past Mt. Arbel to Ginnosar and the beach of Yam Kinneret – the Sea of Galilee.

Since 1948 this has been a traditional hike for all the Israeli Youth Movements. It passes through pools and streams and encompasses the full spectrum of Israeli wildlife, flora, and fauna. It also passes historical and archeological sites. This 70-kilometer (44-mile) hike can be done over three to five days, with the option of camping out or staying in hotels or B&Bs each night.

"Great outing in the North We did a family hike in the North with Extreme Israel during December 2015 and we had a fantastic time! Our guides were great at lead our group and pointing out interesting plant life, views and historic facts throughout the day. We were a large group , with kids ranging from 10-24 and they were able to provide content and fun for everyone. Date of experience: December 2015"

Frequently asked questions

Hiking boots are recommended, if you don’t own them, other sturdy closed shoes (sneakers) will be acceptable. Water shoes and sandals are not sturdy enough.
Once you have booked your tour with us, we will send you a confirmation and supply list email. It will have everything you should bring with you and we will let you know where the hike starts.
The Yam L’Yam hike will take between 3-5 days. Usually, people who are active and young and want to do the hike will do it in 3 days. Most people do the hike in 4 days. People who want to take it easy can do it in 5 days.
Either in the spring or in the autumn. In the winter, it could be raining and in the summer it could be too hot. Spring is the best as there is a lot of water.
It depends on which style you would choose. If you would like to do the backpacker style then you should carry everything on you (the tent, water, sleeping bags, etc.) At the end of every day you can fill up your water and you can buy stuff along the way. There is another option where you can carry just your day bag and then in the evening, your stuff will be waiting for you where you will be camping.
You have 2 options. Option 1: Camp out with us or without us at the end of the day. Option 2: You can stay at a hotel/cabin and be transported to and from the hike.
No, if you would like you can start at the starting point and you can skip some parts and end at the ending point.
