Meet your driver in the lobby of the Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv, where you'll board an air-conditioned vehicle for the drive towards the Judean Desert, home to the UNESCO-listed Masada. On arrival at the ancient fortress, you’ll have free time to explore the remnants of Roman encampments using your self-guiding app.
After absorbing spectacular views of the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea, return to your vehicle for the quick drive to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, an Eden-like wonderland filled with caves, waterfalls, and desert oases. Plunge into refreshing springs or hike around the park before reconvening with your driver for your final stop: the lowest place on earth.
At the Dead Sea, float on one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water, whose world-famous mud is said to have exceptional healing properties. Relax on the beach, grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants (own expense), and then return to your original departure point in Tel Aviv in the early afternoon.
