Hike & Wine Tour - Ain Zebde Hike & Wine Tour - West Bekaa Kefraya

  • There is no good or bad time to taste wine, it is always the right time! What if the wine was produced in the fertile vineyards of the beautiful West Bekaa region!

    To complement the journey, we will start with a moderate hike in one of the most beautiful villages of the area, Ain Zebde. This small village stands on a hill overlooking a panoramic view from Zahle to Jabal el Sheikh (or Hermon Mountain) amazingly mirrored by the Qaroun Lake. We will see very old oak trees with a lot of old stories to tell. These oak trees date back to the Roman era. The hike will be a moderate one with some, not too steep ascents.

    Alternatively, and if you do not wish to hike or make an easy level, you can take the bus to the northern frontiers of the village where you can enjoy a panoramic view in a wonderful setting next to a wooden house on the top of the hill. You will spend some time contemplating the views until the moderate level reaches the top.

    We will then go all as one group to an award winning family-owned boutique winery, “Chateau Qanafar” where we will taste an extraordinary wine. The winery tour and tasting will be led by the owner Mr. Naim,

    Once done, we will come back to Ain Zebde for a delicious traditional lunch prepared by local focusing on authentic food of the region.
