If you’re looking to spend some quality time with your bestie, why not try one of these activities around Lebanon instead of doing the usual dinner and drinks? 1. A day of apple picking and arak making at Guita Bed and Bloom
Nestled amidst the mountains of Akoura, this cozy bed and breakfast is the perfect escape from the city – where you and your friends can go apple picking and even make your very own arak. 2. Hike through a cedar forest at Al Chouf Cedar Reserve
Spend the day among the cedar trees in Chouf, where you can be guided along a cedar-ridden trail up to the summit, and back down a different route. The hike can take anywhere from 3-6 hours, so plan a day away with friends at this natural reserve. 3. Bike through Beirut
