  • Hike up the Masada Mountain and at Ein Gedi Natural Reserve expand_more
    • 03:00 Depart from Tel Aviv.

    • 05:00 Arrive at the eastern side of Masada, before we start hiking up this mountain the guide will prepare us a cup of coffee and some cookies that will help us get the energy for the hike. The hike starts in darkness facing the great mountain of Masada. It will take us about an hour to get to the top of Masada (physical fitness required).

    • 06:00 Watch the sun rising above the Moab Mountains which is a spectacular sight. After enjoying the sunrise, a tour on the top of the mountain will reveal the ethos of the Jewish rebels 2000 years ago. A story of bravery or cowardice - that's up to you to decide.

    • 08:00 Go down from the mountain using the cable car. And after that, a visit to Masada museum- this new museum, recently opened, presents all the items that were found in the excavation.

    • 08:30 Stop for breakfast - sandwiches.

    • 09:30 Hike at Ein Gedi Natural Reserve. This beautiful oasis is a source of living for many animals, flora and human. During the hike, we'll refresh ourselves in the cool fresh water. 

    • 12:00 Visit the Mineral Beach at the Dead Sea: mud, sulfur pools and of course the unique sensation of floating in the Dead Sea.
