Descripción

Revitalize yourself at the incredible "forest reserve" of the Forest of the Cedars of God and explore traditional Lebanese villages, all in one day!

  1. Visit the Forest of the Cedars of God

You'll be picked up from your hotel in Beirut before heading to the famous Forest of the Cedars of God. You will go up to the very top of the hill and stroll amongst hundreds of trees there. Your guide will tell you all about the history of the wood that was once so coveted all over the world that entire forests were destroyed.

  1. Tour of Besharreh & Lunch

You will then continue north of the forest to the welcoming little village of Besharreh, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. You will be able to take a stroll around the ancient town where the famous Lebanese poet Khalil Gibran was born. You can then visit the Gibran Museum as well as the town's many churches and monasteries.

You will then take a pleasant break for lunch in a local restaurant where you can sample delicious mezze (an assortment of small Lebanese dishes) and a glass of Arak (a traditional beverage).

  1. Tour of Kozhaya and the Monastery of Saint Anthony

Your tour will end in the charming village of Kozhaya, which was once a refuge for the Maronites (Lebanese Christians) during the Ottoman Empire. You will visit the Monastery of Saint Anthony, one of the biggest in the Holy Valley, accompanied by your guide. The monastery, which is partially built into the mountainside, offers magnificent panoramic views over the forest and valley.

You will then be taken back to Beirut after a discovery-filled day.
