Choose a tour option on booking, perhaps upgrading to include a spa treatment or a visit to the Dead Sea’s Lowest Place on Earth Museum to make the most of your trip.
Then, meet your driver at your Amman hotel, and travel south by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the Dead Sea. This world-famous salt lake sits at the lowest point on Earth, at 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level. The world’s first natural spa, it’s also a scenic wonder, with its glittering waters ringed by craggy desert mountains.
On arrival, get the day free to enjoy the waters, mineral beaches, and any other amenities (own expense). Lounge on the shores, and soak in the waters, whose salt content is almost 35%, enough to keep you afloat — perfect for those who can’t swim. Plus, if you wish, apply a coating of mineral-rich black mud, before washing it off and enjoying the ultimate pick-me-up feeling.
Come lunchtime, visit the stylish Dead Sea Spa hotel and refuel with a delicious buffet meal at its Crystal Restaurant. Choose from a wide array of Middle Eastern and international dishes, and admire the spectacular view of the waters as you eat.
If you’ve upgraded to add a spa treatment, head for the hotel’s calming and luxurious Vitalia Spa. The treatments available range from a facial, body scrub, and body mud wrap, to a 30-minute, 60-minute, or 90-minute massage, or a 60-minute or 90-minute Thai massage.
Alternatively, upgrade to visit the Lowest Place on Earth Museum as you travel from or back to Amman. Located 1,329 (405 meters) feet below sea level, this modern museum showcases the region’s history and antiquities, including ancient mosaics, pottery, and more.
When it’s time, your driver will transport you back to Amman, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
