What To Expect
Stop at Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in the Judean Desert and situated on top of an isolated rock plateau overlooking the Dead Sea. Walk along the famous Snake Path to the summit just in time for a beautiful sunrise view. Aside from the breathtaking view, spend some time exploring the archaeological ruins here. It was built as a palace complex in the style of the early Roman Empire by Herod the Great, King of Judaea.
Travel back down the mountain on foot or by cable car and continue on to the beautiful Ein Gedi Nature Reserve. This is one of Israel’s premier hiking spots with a wide variety of landscapes, waterfalls, and botanical gardens. Take a short hike along the springs, stopping to relax by the refreshing pools along the way. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase here as well.
Finally, spend some time relaxing on the beach at the Dead Sea. Feel years younger after applying mineral-rich black mud and floating or swimming in the ultra-salty lake water. It’s an experience unlike any other in the world.
The tour concludes here, where you'll board the minivan for a return trip to Jerusalem.
