This relaxing, full-day (10 hours) spa tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Travel from Jerusalem, through the wilderness of the Judean Desert, to the Dead Sea.
Make a brief stop at the roadside 'sea level' marker where the city of Jericho, the oldest city in the world, can be seen from a distance.
Upon arrival, change into a swimsuit and head to the Dead Sea. At 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, this is the lowest place on earth. In fact, it’s so low that any cancerous sun rays are filtered out. After applying a covering of mineral-rich black mud, wash it off in a sulphur pool. Then, it’s time for a therapeutic swim or float in the Dead Sea. The salt level here is almost 35 percent, so those who can’t swim can easily float.
After your rejuvenating treatment, see the mountains of Moab along the eastern shore of the Dead Sea reflecting off the water. Also, witness the roadside caves of Qumran on the northwest shore where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
Additional natural wellness and massage treatments will be available for purchase throughout the day.
