Israel offers a variety of SUP locations, each with its own unique conditions, scenery, history, and vibe. While SUP’ing you will pass by sites with religious, cultural and historical significance, marine nature reserves, unique natural geographical phenomena and more.. You can easily combine in the trip some dry land sightseeing such as walking around Jerusalem, climbing Masada, nightlife in Tel Aviv and lots more.
The Sea of Galilee
Although called a “sea” it is really a lake, surrounded by the Golan mountains – which are a luscious green in winter while in summer they are dry and yellow . The look & feel of the beaches that surround the entire lake change according the local geography, creating different landscapes in every location. SUPing on the Sea of Galilee is a great way to explore this lake, enjoy the view, paddle by where Jesus walked on water and held his last SUPper :>
The Jordan River
If you are into whitewater SUP, you can also explore the Jordan river which in winter time can be up to grade 5 rapid and gets lower through summer time- when it can just be a cruise down the stream. You can also visit the spot where Jesus was baptized.
The Dead sea
One of Nature’s best kept secrets, 400 meters below Sea Level, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth. Nestled in the mountainous terrene of the Judean Desert; it is an oasis of beauty, relaxation, calmness and excitement.
