Hike up Masada Mountain to watch the beautiful sunrise. Visit the museum and hike through Ein Gedi Natural Reserve. At the end of the tour, relax by swimming in the Dead Sea and unwind at the mineral beach.
05:00 - Arrive at the eastern side of Masada. Before we start hiking up this mountain, the guide will prepare us coffee and some cookies to 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. Listen to a story, a tale of bravery or cowardice - that is up to you to decide.
08:00 - Go down from the mountain using the cable car and visit the Masada Museum.
08:30 - Stop for breakfast sandwiches.
09:30 - Hike through Ein Gedi Natural Reserve. This beautiful oasis is the source of life for many animals, flora and humans. During the hike, freshen up with a dip in the cool fresh water.
12:00 - Visit the Mineral Beach by the Dead Sea: mud, sulfur pools and of course, the unique sensation of floating on the Dead Sea waters.
