Ride along the beaches of the Sea of Galilee

Riding in nature along the Sea of Galilee is a very special experience.

Maaganiyim is a family business, founded 3 years ago in Kibbutz Maagan on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. We specialize in bike trips for groups, families and individuals.

With Maaganaim a family bike ride is an experience that combines bonding, nature, sports and the Sea of Galilee landscape. We have bikes in all sizes suitable for adults and children, baby seats and trailers for toddlers (from age 1.5 years old). We offer a wide variety of beautiful, challenging and unique trails around the Sea of Galilee.

Every cyclist receives a map, helmet, professional bike and broad smile.

Along the trails you will find hidden beaches, breathtaking lookouts and places to take a dip in our sweet water lake.

During the variety of trails we offer you can enjoy picking fruits and vegetables in the agricultural plots of the Jordan Valley, riding to additional attractions in the area and swimming in the Sea of Galilee and Lower Jordan River.

Maaganaim operates every day of the week, including Saturdays and holidays.
