This tour starts early to allow you to experience the famous sunrise views from the Masada fortress, before visiting the beautiful Ein Gedi Nature Reserve and the cooling waters of the Dead Sea. Don't miss the opportunity to arrive at Masada on time to see the sunrise over the Dead Sea and Jordanian mountains.

Leave Jerusalem early in the morning and drive through the dark desert to the foot of Masada. As you climb the famous 'Snake Path', a moderate one-hour hike, the sun will begin to rise over the Dead Sea, with the Moab Mountains of Jordan in the distance. By the time you reach the top, the sunrise will have illuminated the landscape, providing breathtaking views.

After spending a couple of hours exploring the archaeological ruins at Masada, descend again by foot, and continue to Ein Gedi, a beautiful oasis in the Judean Desert. Take a short hike along the spring, stopping to relax by the cool and refreshing pools.

The final stop of the day is at the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea. You'll float in the salty waters and immerse yourself in the famous therapeutic mud, which is sold around the world as a beauty treatment, before returning to Jerusalem.
