During Ein Gedi, Dead Sea & Masada Tour you will have the opportunity to discover the magnificent fortress of Masada and the Dead Sea region. Many pilgrims add this tour to enjoy the Southern parts of Holy Land, as well as a glance of the beauty this land has to offer.
We begin our day tour with a drive from Jerusalem, descending through the Judean desert towards the Dead Sea.
First, we will stop at Ein Gedi National Park. Ein Gedi is an oasis and a nature reserve in the Holy Land. In Ein Gedi’s nature reserve, you will find two spring-fed streams that flow year-round: Nahal Aurgot and Nahal David.
In addition, the national park is a sanctuary for many types of plant, bird and animal species including the rock rabbits and the Nubian goats. We will explore this magnificent park and learn about its history.
We continue our tour of the ancient fortifications of Masada (literally meaning fortress in Hebrew). We will ascend towards the ruins, which are located on the eastern edge of the Judaean Desert, overlooking the Dead Sea.
The fort is best known for being the last place of Jewish resistance during the Great Revolt against Rome. A group of Jewish Sicarii (Zealots) barricaded in the fortress during an almost half a year siege of the Roman army
We will visit the archaeological site either by taking the cable car or by taking one of the famous hiking paths.
After finishing our visit to the national park, we will continue to our final station – the beaches of the Dead Sea.
Again, we will descend towards the Dead Sea to the resort town of Ein Bokek.
We will soak in the famous waters of the Dead Sea, taking all its nutritional values.
Finally, after enjoying the sea, we will begin our long drive towards Jerusalem\Tel Aviv, back to your hotel.
