Tiberias is a city unlike any other in Israel. Nestled on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, this ancient city offers visitors to Northern Israel a breathtaking journey through time and culture, making it a perfect destination for travelers of all needs and speeds. 

Here are some of our top recommendations for things to do in Tiberias.

Hamat Tiberias National Park

The park is not just a site for history buffs but also a must-see for nature lovers! The 17 mineral hot springs at Hamat Tiberias, renowned for their therapeutic qualities, are suitable for visitors of all ages. While the park is open year-round, the best time to visit is during the spring and autumn when the weather is mild. In addition to the hot springs, you should explore the remains of ancient baths dating back to the Roman period and admire the stunning mosaics in Severus’ synagogue, a testament to the artistic heritage of the region.

Kever Rambam and the Tombs of Great Jewish Sages

These sacred sites are ideal for visitors interested in spiritual and historical exploration, and are the final resting places of the Great Jewish sages, including the Rambam. It’s a suitable experience for all ages, the tombs (“keverim”) provide a solemn and reflective experience. It's important to note that these sites are places of reverence and require appropriate behavior. Visitors are welcome throughout the year, with no seasonal closures. This is one of the most popular attractions in Northern Israel.

Sea of Galilee

This iconic lake offers a range of activities suitable for different age groups. Families with children can enjoy swimming and gentle boat rides, while adventure-seekers can enjoy water sports including kite surfing and wakeboarding. The Sea of Galilee is particularly fun during the summer months, but many activities are also available throughout the year, weather permitting! It’s best to check the weather on the day you’re planning your visit.

Switzerland Forest

A hidden gem for nature lovers, the forest provides a serene escape with trails suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It's a perfect spot for picnics, hikes, or leisurely walks, offering breathtaking views and tranquil surroundings. The forest is accessible year-round, but it’s at its most beautiful in the spring when the wildflowers bloom. We think it’s one of the top, if overlooked, things to do in Tiberias.

Gai Beach Water Park

A paradise for families and thrill-seekers, the water park features a range of attractions from gentle wave pools for young children to more challenging water slides for older kids and adults. The park usually opens from late spring to early autumn and has a range of non-water facilities, including dining options and relaxation areas.
