A DAY IN ISRAEL’S FLOURISHING DESERT
Masada Mountain Fortress: Ride up to the top of Masada via cable car and explore the remains of King Herod’s palace. You’ll be able to imagine what it was like to live there as you view the well preserved baths, cisterns, barracks, and more. Venture around the modern Masada museum and survey the attempt of the Jews to fight the Romans one last time. Hear the inspiring tales of human endurance, and the shocking discovery the Roman’s found when they reached the mountain to conquer it.
Dead Sea Float & Mud Experience: Enjoy a relaxing, therapeutic day in this oasis of warm, buoyant water and mineral-rich mud in the middle of the Judean Wilderness. The unique minerals and salts in the water have strong healing properties and can aid in healing skin tissue, skin allergies, and arthritis – just to name a few. Medical researchers continue to find new ways that the minerals can heal a myriad of ailments. Discover these findings for yourself as you read the paper while floating on the dense, salty water, and lather yourself with the nutrient-filled mud—an all-around luxurious day!
Ascend to Jerusalem: To conclude the day, you will return to the holy city of Jerusalem, followed by a final stop in Tel Aviv.
