This Masada sunrise tour starts early in the morning when you are picked up in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem and driven south through the Judean Hills. Arriving at Masada follow the Snake Path that twists and turns up to Masada’s summit. From the top of Masada watch as the sun slowly rises across the desert and the Dead Sea, painting the scenery below with light. Explore the remains of Herod’s fortress built over 2,000 years ago on Masada’s plateau summit. The tour continues to Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, a desert oasis where lush vegetation flanks bubbling streams and water cascades down picturesque waterfalls. Spend the rest of the day relaxing at the Dead Sea where you can enjoy the beach and float in the mineral-rich salty water. Our Masada sunrise tour comes to an end when you are returned to the pick-up point in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem.
The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is a unique health resort, which annually brings millions of tourists from all over the world.
The Judaean Desert or Judean Desert is a desert in Israel and the West Bank that lies east of Jerusalem and descends to the Dead Sea.
In the Judean Desert, at the mouth of the Jordan River, John the Baptist baptized people, calling them to repentance.
Ein Gedi is an oasis, national park, reserve and a definitive “must-visit” while travelling in Israel.
