Full description
Benefit from pickup at your hotel, and then drive through the Judean Desert and Jordan Valley on the way to the Dead Sea, almost 400 meters below sea level. Travel along the shores of the sea to the ancient settlement of Masada, King Herod's desert fortress perched high on a rock above. Enter what was once a series of castles that formed the final stronghold inhabited by freedom fighters who courageously waged war against the Roman Empire. Listen to the remarkable tale about those who chose to die over enslavement under an enemy regime. Descend by cable car and continue to the shores of the Dead Sea to enjoy the therapeutic properties of the mud and salt-rich water. Experience the unique sensation of floating on water before driving back across the desert to your hotel.
