The Switzerland Forest

Is the Switzerland Forest beautiful on its own or due to the breathtaking views which are seen from it? It seems that the answer is both. From the well-kept and partly planted on a photogenic slope that is situated between the village of Poriya and the city of Tiberias (Tveria), is seen the blue landscape of the Sea of Galilee and the mountains around it. The way to the Switzerland Forest itself is an experience on its own: it winds on a narrow road up the mountain and provides wonderful views (one should drive carefully!). The Switzerland Forest provides many areas in which one can have a long and enjoyable picnic, and also several observation points- as is appropriate for a forest which hangs above the Sea of Galilee. The most impressive observation point is one which includes three covered lookout terraces which provide an almost panoramic view of the forest as well as of its surroundings. One can follow the trail that is suggested on the sign at the entrance to the Switzerland Forest, or wander around with no specific purpose and on the way discover beautiful locations. To the Switzerland Forest one can arrive from the city of Tiberias (Tveria) as well as from the village of Poriya.
