The Qadisha Valley is fantastic for walking, with options for both light strolls and more demanding treks. You'll explore the region on foot today, at your own pace.

Ideal for first-timers in this part of the world, this classic Lebanon tour ticks off many of the country’s best highlights. From the hectic streets of Beirut to staggering views across the Qadisha Valley, ancients ruins and sun-soaked vineyards in Bekaa, history and cedar forests of the Chouf region, and seaside havens in the south, you’ll really get to know many sides of this gem of a country across just 10 days.

You’ll have a driver and guide with for most of the trip so you can make sure you pack in as much as possible and be able to speak to a local about their personal experience.
