Tourist Tip #124 Amirim, a Vegetarian Garden of Eden

Overlooking the Galilee and a short hop from Safed, the vegetarian moshav Amirim offers a number of cozy lodgings and fine meat-free dining.

Tucked into a mountainside in lush northern Israel, the vegetarian moshav Amirim is one of those places that seem to exist in a bubble where the air is cleaner and your worries are left behind. And it's not just the altitude (650 meters above sea level) that leaves you feeling lighter: The cozy community of bed and breakfasts, log cabins and stone cottages exudes a calming vibe.
