About this activity
Begin your adventure as your personal guide welcomes you at Ashdod port. Traverse the mesmerizing Judean desert, passing by notable landmarks like the Inn of the Good Samaritan and Jericho, the world's oldest city nestled like an oasis in the desert. Pause at the iconic sign marking "Below Sea Level" for a memorable photo opportunity. Your journey continues to the awe-inspiring Masada fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built by King Herod over 2,000 years ago. It was here that Jewish Zealots valiantly resisted advancing Roman forces and, rather than surrender, chose mass self-sacrifice.
Ascend to the summit in a cable car, gazing down at the remarkable Snake Path winding its way 400 meters up the hill. Revel in breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Explore the ancient synagogue, bathhouse, and remnants of a Byzantine-era church used by monks since the 1st century. Don't miss the opportunity to peruse the museum filled with archaeological treasures. Your journey then leads you to the Dead Sea, renowned for its buoyant salty waters, mineral-rich black mud perfect for indulgent body treatments, and therapeutic sulfur pools. It's undeniably one of the world's most exceptional destinations. Surrender to the sensation of floating in the sea and unwind in this rejuvenating environment amidst the tranquil Negev Desert. Finally, return with your personal guide to Ashdod, soaking in the enchanting wilderness scenery along the way.
