Ginosar is a Kibbutz on the western banks of the Kinneret. It was founded in 1937 on the eve of the festival of Purim by a group of young socialists. Originally an agricultural community, its primary source of income is now from tourism. In 1986 there was a severe drought and when the level of the lake dropped, a frame of a fishing boat was revealed and it has been dated to 100-70 CE and is known as the Sea of Galilee Boat. It was rescued, placed in a special tank and displayed at the Beit Yigal Allon Museum.
Ginosar is home to a quaint resort village that provides a calm, country vacation and offers a variety of activities in the area. attractions include the annual Jacob’s Ladder Festival- a three-day festival of world-wide music; the Adam BaGalil Musem- a hands-on museum and educational center that explores early settlement in the Galilee; bike rental; jeeps and dune buggy trips; horseback riding; sailing on the Jordan river; extreme sport activities; spa and hot springs and much, much more.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
