From the Old City of Jerusalem, drive to Southern Israel for a brilliant day amongst nature. Hike in the cool darkness to the very top of the ancient desert fortress of Masada before bathing in the healing, salty waters of the Dead Sea. You will watch the day begin with a spectacular sunrise over the Moab Mountains and the Judean Desert. Then at the top of the mountain, discover the history of one the greatest Jewish symbols of hope and pride. You will ascend and descend the mountain fortress by the famous Snake Path. Then, continue on to the real highlight of the tour, a walk through the stunning Ein Gedi nature reserve with its natural springs, waterfalls and amazing desert plants and wildlife. After your long walk you will be ready to rest your tired feet and float effortlessly in the healing waters of the Dead Sea or take a bath in the therapeutic mud at the lowest place on Earth: A truly unique experience that will leave you relaxed and fortified.

Nothing but great.....On this trip I was fortunate to be a part of a great group of people. A comradery was formed naturally which made the whole experience so much better. The sites were the best. Just be sure you bring comfortable hiking clothing and your swimsuit.

One of our favorite experiences in Israel and the best tour company we used by far. Samuel was an excellent guide during the drive. The hike up Masada is challenging but not prohibitively so (husband carried our 2 year old on his back and Im just over 6 months pregnant…it took us about 50 minutes and 2 bottles of water to get up). For the Dead Sea, be sure to bring flip flops or water shoes—we didn’t and really regretted it. Excellent trip— not to be missed!

Die Tour war perfekt & unvergesslich! Der Aufstieg war sehr anstrengend, aber hat sich in jedem Fall gelohnt. Auch der Stop in En Gedi und das Baden im Toten Meer waren fabelhaft! Der Guide Samuel hat super interessante Informatik geteilt. Große Empfehlung!
