Entering the Land of Israel through one of its sea ports is a truly unique experience. As you arrive in Haifa, you’ll be able to see from the deck the marvelous Baha’i Gardens, the evergreen Carmel Mountain and the gorgeous city’s bay in a way most Israelis will never be able to. As a matter of fact, for many travelers, the main reason for choosing this cruise is the goal of docking in the Land of Israel by way of its northern port city of Haifa.
It is therefore no surprise that this spot is a wonderful departure point for some of the most exciting shore excursions one can take in this country and quite possibly the very best ones that you’ll have during your entire cruise. With only a short while at your disposal, you’ll most likely want to make the most of your brief visit.
This can easily be achieved by employing the services of a private guide of Israel, who’ll make sure that you enjoy a personally fitted tour, complying with all your wants, needs, requirements and hopes. This will also provide you with the peace of mind that your time here is quite carefully planned and ideally utilized.
The most popular Christian shore excursion tends to be of the Sea of Galilee and Nazareth.
The most sought after tour with Jewish emphasis is of the cities of Acre, with a visit to the Knights Halls, and Safed, the birthplace of Kabbalah.
Another great possibility when docking in Haifa is to tour the Golan Heights.
The coastal plain of Israel can also make for a wonderful day trip from Haifa, introducing you to the cities of Caesarea, Jaffa and Tel Aviv, or the classic coastal tour of Caesarea, Haifa Akko and Rosh Hanikra (the grottos) built along the Mediterranean shore (with a more relaxed option for a coastal tour being a visit to the neighboring cities of Jaffa and Tel Aviv, combining historical sites with youthful tourism).
If the tours offered Ashdod appeal to you(like visiting Jerusalem region or the dead sea even), they can be adapted to depart from the port of Haifa by planning for a shorter day of travel.
