Begin your day trip with a pickup from your central Tel Aviv hotel. Board your air-conditioned coach and travel through the plains and mountains of the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea.
Along the way, hear about the region’s ancient past and pass the site of the Inn of the Good Samaritan, thought to be the location of the much-loved biblical parable.
Glimpse the ancient city of Jericho in the distance and catch sight of the shimmering Dead Sea as you descend to this extraordinary salt lake. Located at the lowest point on Earth — around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level — its waters are over 10 times saltier than sea water and contain a rich blend of natural minerals.
Arrive at a Dead Sea set by the water’s edge and enjoy ample free time to relax and enjoy your surroundings as you wish. Take a ‘swim’ in the salt-rich waters, lounge on the shore, and enjoy refreshments (own expense) at the café. Perhaps enjoy a mud bath in the world's richest source of natural salts or indulge in the therapeutic mud treatments (own expense) at the spa.
Your tour then ends with a hotel drop-off in Tel Aviv.
