Masada & Dead sea tour

The Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth (1,415 ft/ 430 meters below sea level) and for me one of the most beautiful places I know.

On this special day we will enjoy nature at its best in the Judean desert, plus the spectacular historical ruins of the site of Masada and a short but beautiful hike at the Ein Gedi oasis.

We will start the day in Masada, the most well-known tourist site in Israel (after Jerusalem). On this hill, which is 500 meters above the Dead Sea we will have breathtaking views. Masada is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the place of one of the greatest Jewish stories of all times. It is the place where 2,000 years ago Jews fought and died for their freedom.

From Masada it is a short drive to Ein Gedi. On a one-two hour short easy hike, we will get a glimpse of nature in the Judean Desert.

Then we’ll go to float and relax in the very special salt lake- the Dead Sea.

This day could have a more historical interest by adding a tour of the site of Qumeran, where the Dead sea scrolls were found.

Another recommended option is to start the day super early (3-4 AM) and to climb up to Masada at sunrise. This is experience I can assure you, you will never forget.
