- Replenish the body and rejuvenate the mind, with this Dead Sea Spa and Wellness trip from Jerusalem! Cover yourself in the therapeutic natural mud, and float in the salt-rich sea amid spectacular landscape, flanked by the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the east and the mountains to the west.
Your relaxing day tour begins with a descent into the Judean desert, a barren wilderness in the heart of the Holy Land. En-route, you will pass the Inn of the Good Samaritan and enjoy panoramic views of the ancient city of Jericho, before arriving at your Dead Sea resort destination.
The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is undoubtedly the water itself - over 10 times saltier than natural sea water. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this impressive stretch of water receives several incoming rivers within its land-locked shores. Since the rivers have nowhere to flow onto, the waters evaporate and leave behind a rich blend of natural minerals and salt, giving the Dead Sea its unique buoyancy!
After floating on the water and enjoying the therapeutic mud, pamper yourself further with some indulgent treatments for an additional cost, before heading back to Jerusalem. En-route, your air-conditioned coach will have a brief stop at the Qumran caves to see where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
Visiting this surreal natural environment is a unique experience that no-one should miss! If a day of relaxation and swimming sounds like your ideal, this tour is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip to Israel.
