The Jordan River or River Jordan is a 156 mile long river flowing to the Dead Sea. Yardenit is perhaps one of the most important places during a Holy Land Israel tour for pilgrims. The Jordan River is where Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist and the Holy Spirit descended from heaven in shape of a dove.
The region of the Galilee is a powerful and uplifting place to visit on a tour to the holy land for Christian pilgrims. It is where the slopes and hills of the Galilee reach down to the most famous lake in the Bible, the Sea of Galilee the largest fresh water lake in Israel.
On your tour to the Holy Land you will have the opportunity to visit one of the new Seven Wonders of the World in the lowest place on earth (417 meters below sea level) The Dead Sea. Due to the quantity of water that evaporates from the lake being greater than the water that flows into it on a daily basis, the Dead Sea has the highest concentration of salt in the world (340 grams per liter of water).
