Itinerary


Our spectacular journey for this day start through the ancient Judean desert, in the same way that the Israelites walked when they first came to the land of Israel. We will see the impressive mountains of Jordan and the Old City of Jericho until we reach our first stop - Masada. 

With an electric cable car, we will climb up to the edge of the mountain, watching other climbers struggling with the walking of the grueling snake path. Masada is an ancient Jewish fortress unparalleled in the landscape of the Land of Israel. From this stronghold the Jews fought against the Romans, while they besieged them around the mountain and deprived them of all supplies of water and food. The citadel is beautifully preserved and can be found in its residents' quarters, the local synagogue, the bathhouse, the large swimming pool and other unusual findings discovered by Israeli archaeologists. In this way we will be able to experience for a moment the nature of the life that the Masada Jews lived before and under the siege of the mountain. 

After that, we will descend from Masada and continue toward Ein Gedi. In this historical place, it is described that King David took a refugee and hid him from the anger of King Saul ( Sam 24:1). In Ein Gedi, we will see beautiful waterfalls and pools of sweet and salted water alike. 

Our tour will continue to the famous Qumran Caves - where archaeologists have discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls. From there, to the Dead Sea resort where we will enjoy flooding on the salt water, treatments with the mud of the sea and the warm Mediterranean sun. Before returning to the hotel, we will bathe in fresh water in order to clean ourselves from the salts and the mud.
