The popular Peace Vista

The Peace Vista contains a lookout point and a several-kilometer concrete path providing wonderful views over Lake Kinneret and south of the lake. It is also stroller and wheelchair-friendly.

     Do you find my website interesting and helpful?

Then you are sure to love my two new books "In and Around Jerusalem for Everyone - The Best Walks, Hikes and Outdoor Pools" and "The Struggle for Utopia - A History of Jewish, Christian and Islamic Messianism". Both books are available on Amazon and in Jerusalem bookstores. Click on each of the titles for information, reviews and purchase information.



Time: About 1 hour there and back.

Distance: 3¾ Km there and back.

Type of walk: The same trail there and back.

Difficulty: This is a very easy trail along a concrete path with no incline. It is stroller and wheelchair-friendly.

Directions: Enter “Peace Vista” into Waze, and click on

"בקתות נופש מצפה לשלום ורוח על המים." This will bring you to a large parking lot. 

Facilities: There are restrooms, a kiosk for drinks and snacks, and a gift shop by the beginning of the path.

Public transport: Enter "Kfar Haruv" into Moovit. The bus stop is a short distance from the Peace Vista. There are buses from Degania, Katzrin and Mevo Hama.

  • Take the path from the parking lot to the lookout, passing by a roundabout. There is a helpful recording in Hebrew or English explaining the significance of this site and the view.


From the lookout can be seen the entire expanse of Lake Kinneret. Below you is Kibbutz Ein Gev. Across the lake you can make out the city of Tiberias. Mount Tabor is the highest mountain in the distance on your left. To your right can be seen Mount Meron and Mount Canaan in the Upper Galilee.


  • For the walk, go around the gift shop on a gravel path and you will soon come to the concrete path. For strollers and wheelchairs, there is an entrance to the path closer to the parking lot.

  • Continue along the path until you come to Mevo Hama.


  • From here, retrace your steps back to the parking lot.
