Enjoy a full-day tour starting with the sunrise in Masada and ending with a relaxing dip into the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea! Your day will start very early: you will be picked up at 2:00am from Tel Aviv as to arrive by 5:30am at the bottom of the Masada mountain to begin hiking to the top. On the way up to the top, enjoy the extraordinary desert sunrise, one that can only be seen in the right place at the right time. Once at the top you will enjoy some time to experience the site during that special time of the day. Head back down and transfer to Ein-Gedi Nature Reserve.

At 9:00am you will arrive at the Ein-Gedi Nature reserve. Enter the reserve and explore the desert wildlife in the magnificent green Ein-Gedi Oasis. You continue your journey to the Dead Sea arriving at 11:30am. The Dead Sea is known to be the lowest point on earth. Enjoy bathing, floating on its therapeutic waters, and covering yourself with the world-famous mud. You will be back in Tel Aviv around 2:00pm.
