Hamat is a village in Lebanon. It is located 287 meters atop the historic cape of Theoprosopon. It is home to the historic shrine and monastery of Our Lady of Nourieh. The village is also home to Saint Elias Church, which overlooks the Jawz River and the ancient Phoenician coastal town of Batroun.

The journey will start with a breakfast stop on our way.

We’ll start our hike by a visit to Deir Saidet el Nourieh in Hamat. A walk to the sanctuary located on the vertical cliff overlooking the sea is spectacular. We’ll visit as well two other convents in the area.
Then we’ll continue on foot along a partially asphalted road until we reach the bifurcation leading to Deir Saidet el Horshieh where you can admire an awesome view of the sea.
The hike will continue in the fields of Hamat and we’ll take an in-depth tour in the old rural streets of the village.

Our hike in Hamat is for fun and for culture.
The hike is of level 4+, suitable for all ages.
The hike will be guided by an ecotourism specialist and a local guide at a moderate rate.
