Jordan River

jordan riverThe Jordan river is one of the most famous riverd in the world for its mentions and use in the Bible. Next to Jericho the Israelites crossed the Jordan river to reclaim the Holy Land, and in the first century CE, perhaps at the same spot, Jesus of Nazareth was baptised by John the Baptist.

Baptism ceremonies still take place at several sites on the Jordan River (namely Yardenit  and Qasr el-Yahud ), as well as fun activities like Kayaking , or riding a canoe (“Rob Roy” ).
