About this activity
Your adventure begins as your tour guide greets you at Ashdod cruise port, ready to embark on a day of exploration. A comfortable air-conditioned vehicle awaits, and we head south, descending through the picturesque Judean Desert mountains. This scenic route takes us below sea level to the Earth's lowest point, the Dead Sea, en route to Masada.
At Masada, you'll ascend to the plateau summit via a cable car, soaring 1,424ft (434 meters) above the ground. Enjoy a guided tour of King Herod's palace-fortress, where you'll marvel at well-preserved archaeological treasures, including mosaics, storerooms, palaces, and a bathhouse. Visit the Masada Museum, showcasing over 500 artifacts discovered at the site, and delve into Masada's rich history through an engaging audiovisual presentation.
After leaving Masada, we journey to Ein Bokek beach on the Dead Sea, where you'll have a choice of having lunch either at Masada or on the beach. The afternoon is yours to relax, unwind on the beach, and experience the unique sensation of floating in the buoyant Dead Sea waters. Rejuvenate your skin with the sea's mineral-rich mud or purchase some as a natural skincare treatment. As the day of adventure, history, and relaxation draws to a close, we'll take the scenic route via Arad back to Ashdod Port, ensuring you return to your cruise ship in comfort.
