What to expect

Join this tour to Masada, Ein Gedi and Dead Sea Tour and visit three sites full of natural beauty and history, allowing you to explore the ancient fortress of Masada, hike in the Ein Gedi nature reserve, and float in the mineral-rich Dead Sea.

Leaving Jerusalem, you'll travel south through the beautiful Judean Desert to the foot of the Masada fortress which stands beside the Dead Sea. From here you'll take a cable car to the top of the fortress, enjoy the special views, and explore the archaeological ruins. Masada is one of Israel's most important archaeological sites, and the site of one of the greatest tales of Jewish heroism. The excavated ruins are fascinating to explore, and the remarkable location high above the surrounding desert and Dead Sea, makes this a might impressive experience.

After leaving Masada, you'll travel the short distance to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve. Surrounded by desert, this beautiful reserve offers a beautiful hike alongside the cool waters which flow from the spring. Stop and cool off beside one of the pools which can be found along the way, before returning to the entrance and heading to our final stop of the day. The lowest place on Earth, the Dead Sea is a lake with water so salty that it allows you to float. While floating in the water, immerse yourself in the therapeutic mud which is sold around the world as beauty products before returning to Jerusalem having enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll never forget.

This Masada, Ein Gedi, and Dead Sea tour is unique and designed for the independent traveler. No other tour combines these three beautiful sites, and allows you to hike up to the top of the fortress, an important part of any visit! Leaving from Jerusalem four times a week, this is a remarkable tour.
