Masada Sunrise tour
After a short break, we will begin to discover the ancient ruins of Masada: King Herod’s palace and fortress. There we will see the most kept Roman siege system in the world that will tell us the story of the last Jewish stronghold during the great rebel against the Romans.
From Massada we will go on to Ein Gedi, a beautiful oasis in the middle of the Judean desert. We shall hike through the nature reserve, bathe in the waterfalls and see a unique ecological system in the middle of the desert which is rich in water, flora, and animals such as ibexes and hyraxes, and with some luck, we will be able to see them as well.
From Ein Gedi, we will drive to one of the splendid Dead Sea beaches and spend some quality time, floating and relaxing in the Dead Sea, which is one of the world’s wonders.
After the wonderful experience at the Dead Sea, we shall head back to the hotel.
