      About this Eilat tour

      Take an excursion to Masada, an ancient fortification overlooking the stunning natural vistas of the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea. Considered the symbol of Jewish national identity, Masada is a rugged natural fortress on which Herod the Great, the Judean King who ruled from 37 B.C. to 4 A.D., constructed a sumptuous palace complex in classical Roman style. After Judaea became a province of the Roman Empire, Masada served as the refuge of the last survivors of the Jewish revolt, who "chose death rather than slavery" when the Roman Army broke through their defenses.

      A cable car will take you to this natural defensive site, where you will take in dramatic views of the rocky desert and the Dead Sea. Your knowledgeable guide will give you all the juicy details regarding the site's dramatic history and archaeological significance. The remarkably intact Masada complex is an outstanding example of opulent architectural design, elaborately engineered and constructed in extreme conditions.

      With your thirst for knowledge satisfied, enjoy a delicious cold buffet, then have the chance to relax in the renowned healing waters of the Dead Sea. Also known as the Salt Sea, this amazing body of water, one of the world's saltiest, is the lowest point of elevation on Earth and boasts sunny skies and warm, dry air year round. The waters of the Dead Sea are almost ten times as salty as the ocean and contain the highest concentration of minerals in the world, allowing visitors to float effortlessly in the water. The mud and salt water are also prized the world over for their therapeutic value.

      Life of the Dead Sea

      Did you know that the Dead Sea was one the world's first health resorts? While sodium accounts for about 80 percent of the salt content of normal sea water, it comprises much less of the salt total in water from the Dead Sea. Due to the water's high concentration of minerals, very low content of pollens and other allergens in the atmosphere, reduced ultraviolet rays, and high atmospheric pressure, the Dead Sea is recognized worldwide as a major center for health research and treatment. Now that's one body of water that can float your boat!
